BE ACTIVE... In life, as on the mat, we choose to be active or passive.
.
I went to a yoga class from @chrisfoxyoga two days ago. He taught in a revolutionary way for me. That every movement needs to active. We shouldn't jam our body into a pose and hang on our limbs. We need to initiate and control that movement with the muscles involved, and our all important breath.
.
It sounds obvious, but I sure wasn't practicing like this. I don't think many people do.
.
The revelation for me is that being active Vs passive is a theme that applies directly to life. How often do we let situations happen to us? How often do we not speak up? How often do we hide, make ourselves small or not take responsibility for our actions?
.
Everytime we do this, we are passive. We're hanging on our limbs and hoping we hit the pose. We're not engaging with, or training, our inner strength. When we live like this we are not being the creators of our lives. We are watching as time is passing us by.
.
So what can we do? We need to train ourselves to be active - on and off of the mat. Let's start with awareness. Through it we can create change.
.
If you'd like support in developing self-awareness, take a look at the meditations I've created for it, in my bio @kirbanu and join me and @annie_au_yoga for our next Mindfulness Challenge starting on Monday 14th Jan.
.
We're in this together ❤️
