What I learned in yoga this week:
Ahimsa – the act of non-violence. Our instructor discussed it in the sense of our personal lives. Don’t harm your spirit, yourself. Don’t push your body into pain. In our poses, we are supposed to think positively about what we are doing to our body, not the pain that comes with it. Remove yourself from the pain. Don’t make a face when you go down into chaturanga dandasana, don’t bite your nails; that type of concentration on breathing and internal feelings, not external feelings. But its hard not to see the indirect connection in this weeks lesson with the various newmaking attacks in the last week.
