JOY. What makes your spirit smile? Are you experiencing at least one instance of pure joy every day? Do you regularly share acts of kindness? It’s been said that pleasure is in the body, happiness is in the mind, and joy is in the heart. Both pleasure and happiness are fleeting. Joy, on the other hand, is a fruit of the Spirit – a deep-in-the-soul feeling.
MEDITATION. Are you familiar with peace? Are your responses to challenging situations controlled or reactive? Could you benefit from greater focus, concentration and awareness? When people find out that I teach meditation as a part of the yoga sessions, it elicits a variety of responses. Some have questions, such as: “How long do I need to meditate?” “Would it conflict with my religion?” Others submit their own perceived limitations: “I can’t stay still.” “My mind is always full.” “I don’t have the time.” “I tried it but nothing happened.”
THE BUZZ: I was honored today to once again take a workshop with Tao Porchon-Lynch, one of my favorite yoga teachers. At 90 years old, she is stronger – physically and spiritually – than most people I know, and is a constant inspiration for my own life and many others. She often talks about allowing the yoga practice to come from the inside which is where your true power lies. She is indeed a PWR Broker – a light that shines so bright that you feel her warmth the moment you step into her presence.
