"It is through your body that you realize you are a spark of divinity." –B.K.S. Iyengar
The body works as a filter for the mind, collecting, sorting, distributing and disposing of every thought that passes within and through us. Listen closely. Our bodies have plenty to share with us about our choices in diet, exercise and lifestyle. Mindful movement like Yoga uses focused awareness and guided intention to download the body's messages. When we take time to lovingly listen to our body, we gain valuable insight into a more fulfilling and connected life with our environment and ourselves.
"We can never obtain peace in the world if we neglect the inner world and don't make peace with ourselves. World peace must develop out of inner peace." –Dalai Lama
The average person has around 60,000 thoughts per day. An embodied practice like Yoga exercises awareness of movement in the body, as well as awareness of movement in the mind. When we compassionately address the winds of thought that blow through the mind, we begin to notice how those thoughts also affect the body. Similarly, with emotions, Yoga teaches us to notice where in the body we feel our attachment to that emotion or thought. Mastering the mind-body connection teaches us how to consciously tackle an emotional disturbance that a single thought or sequence of thoughts may cause, thereby releasing the body from doing the dirty work alone.
"Ekam sat vipraha bahudha vadanti."
(Truth is one, the wise call it by many names.)
–Rig Veda (1.64.46)
