All in branding & social media
It has taken me weeks to process the ramifications of Kathy’s message. I remain undecided as to whether I will find a way to reconcile my loss of faith in the yoga community with my love for the practice and the breathtakingly courageous people I teach. It saddens me to think students excited about any transformative practice, like yoga, would be subjected to so much misplaced fear and hatred…it is even worse, as a community, that we label this “yoga teacher training!”
In theory there is nothing wrong with the McYoga model until the “instructor”, with two weekends of training, gets confused about the difference between a push-up and “chaturanga dan lasagna" and you end up with a torn rotator in your shoulder.
What if your life was designed from start to finish as the most beautiful form of play the universal mind has ever imagined.
What if living your life was meant to be the most profound aesthetic experience you will ever have while being human.
Clothing can hide or reveal, it can enforce or challenge cultural norms and it literally comes in contact with our largest sense organ, our skin, constantly.
Aesthetics and beauty do play a role in our lives, so picking brands and products that feel sensual and well designed can impact the quality of our lives.
Shame drives tapes within the mind of each person in slightly different ways but the outcome for most of us is the same…unfulfilling choices.
My big nose
I can remember standing in front of the mirror at 16 and seeing only one thing…a giant nose. I recall obsessive feelings of revulsion boil up inside myself. I felt ugly. I know now teenagers go through a lengthy period period of awkward transformation and irrational feelings fueled in part by hormones and the liminal process of becoming an adult.
it is possible that what makes one person feel connected, tuned in and present is exactly the opposite of what another person needs to feel connected, tuned in and present and for both to exist at the same time and for both to bring about a deep sense of love and compassion.
