Yoga & Change…

“Change is not something that we should fear. Rather, it is something that we should welcome. For without change, nothing in this world would ever grow or blossom, and no one in this world would ever move forward to become the person they’re meant to be…”

–    Yoga wisdom from a wise and unknown source…

I had to dig to find this yoga quote and am still not sure I have it right – but you get the idea… we are being asked to embrace change.

But right now today I feel torn between change and acceptance of what is, or rather I am struggling with accepting the changes I don’t want to see.

Ghandi would have to be one of my all time heroes, and I think it was him who uttered the wise words “be the change you want to see”.

I’ve been discussing this with folk at the yoga centre and there is definitely a conundrum between accepting what is and desiring change.  We’ve resolved not to externalise, not to attach to our own desires for outcomes, and just ride the waves.

BTW – does anyone know where the above quote comes from?  Would like to track them down?

Also – thanks to the reader who found this article after my bit on the warrior pose “Draw Strength from Yoga’s Warrior Poses”. Click here.

Restaurant reviewers find it easier to travel incognito, and so do I. I travel a lot for work and use this as an excuse check out yoga classes, yoga courses and yoga colleges around my home country, Australia. In this yoga blog, I refer to yoga centres in Sydney. I am not actually a yoga teacher, just a passionate yoga student.

I have practised yoga in the US and have done yoga courses in India but have no bias towards any yoga style. Actually, maybe I am biased to a yoga style, or at least certain methods of education applied in yoga courses, but I’ll leave it to you to find out what that is. My mission? I just want people to think a little deeper about yoga.
