A Living Practice

There are no leaders. No Presidents or Board Members. No ‘chat now’ lines. No By-laws.

Yoga is self-directed. People have tried to own and trademark om signs and posture sequences. It’s not for sale and can’t be owned by one single entity. It’s a beautiful thing when you think about this day and age how everyone owns and owns and possesses and possesses.

Next time you want to cling and possess yoga, remember, that what you practice in a classroom on your sticky mat, is just preparatory work for what you will face in your daily life. And you get to practice by dealing with all those sticky situations at work, with ornery neighbors, with lines you hate to wait on, in traffic jams and sitting in a plane in a tight seat for 14 hours.

Your practice will show up. That you can bet on.
