Hello everyone! I hope this blog post finds you well on this Sunday morning 🙂
This post is coming directly from the Hot Yoga Copenhagen studio… or could we call it classroom? There is so much to learn from inside a yoga studio: about yourself, about others, about life, your body, your mind… the list goes on.
So let’s jump right in here to a lesson I find to be so important that can be learned inside the yoga ‘classroom’. This idea is the idea of ‘non-judgement.’
I’m talking about non-judgement towards others, and non-judgement towards oneself.
Let’s enter the room, take a deep inhale through the nose, open the mouth… release all judgement.
Let it go.
Why? The yoga practice is meant to serve for you. Yes, you. Come into the studio, clear the mind, let’s keep the gaze soft, let’s keep the gaze on the mat, the floor, the walls. Let’s not compete or compare with those practicing around us. Let’s not compete or compare with your yesterday’s self. Yoga is not meant to be a competition.
Yoga is for you.
This can be harder said than done when there are fellow yogis practicing all around you. But try. Bring the mind inwards.
Today is a new day, a new practice. Take it as it comes.
Maybe today you need a break, give yourself that luxury. That’s okay. Maybe today, you feel energized and alive. Welcome it!
Open the ears, tune them in to what your body is telling you.
Practicing this concept on the mat, will only positively serve you off the mat. Leave the studio, take a deep inhale through the nose, open the mouth… release all judgement.
Let it go.
