The title refers to yoga… as a philosophy as much as it is other ‘things’.
It is a just as a reminder YOGA is not just a meditation, it is not just a physical exercise…
It encompasses much more than what many have come to perceive it as in this modern world…
Humans have so many layers, and whilst yoga is simple, it is a practice of a lifetime or more, when it is mastered that is…
It is not a snapped photograph, but a thought-out painting with an outline, and layers upon layers of paints and mixing of colour, building on an image which is the image of our life.
That image takes a lifetime to paint.
With this in mind, poses can be simple in practice, and can be built on, but yoga is never completed, because it is infinity…
It continues to flow, just like the Vinyasa.
The way yoga is used in modern society varies…
It is great to bring the traditions into modern living, but in my mind, it is important not to lose too much of the yoga essence.
Some people are yogis and some people practise yoga…
There is a difference i.e those who practise asanas in gyms or just for the fitness benefit.
Whatever the reasons, they really don’t matter, as long as more people are embracing yoga or elements of yoga with Metta; knowingly or unknowingly.
In a nutshell, yoga is everything, and nothing…
It is a contradiction – it is neither black, white and nor is it grey, but it is all three and every shade.
It is complimenting opposites to create balance.
Chinese philosophy would compare with the balanced between Yin and Yang.
To me, yoga has allowed me to be just me, to travel within and to learn more about myself and about others.
To focus and to deal with whatever life has to offer with a rational mind.
It proves that kindness is the key to much ‘happiness’.
Wherever I am in the world, my world is truly what I want it to be.
It allows me to detach, to be free, to accept and to gain complete balance on all levels.
And so to my students, I would say that,
‘yoga is what you want life to be, it is for everybody, it is your truth, and an aid to reach your essence… Yoga just is, and allows you just to be.’
