Intention of Yoga…
“Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; for it becomes your destiny.”
– Some Yoga wisdom from the Upanishads
Today I downloaded this saying form a sheet in the WellBeing.com.au Teacher Resources
I was looking for something to show to some curious teenagers who were stitting around our dining table trying to work out what kind of yoga centre they wanted to go to. I guess it gave me cause for thought on my recent bitch about yoga celebritism… there’s nothing like a spontaneous leadership moment to remind you that you are also just another kid in the wilderness…
Watching the growth of ego in young people is a fascinating and frightening journey. As they navigate the brutal world of high school tribes, winners/losers, and finding their own place in the world. This generation also has to think about personal brand in a larger way than ever before thanks to the personal broadcast mediums like FaceBook.
BTW – if you are involved with raising or teaching littler children you will draw inspiration from Kim McCormics article on “Yoga For Kids”.
