Specifically, the yoga of darkness.
“….But yoga will also show us exactly how badly we feel. Usually, when honest emotion starts to come up, students leave. They skip class or decide yoga wasn’t what they wanted. They say ‘it’s not working any longer’. The emotion itself keeps them away; they’re ‘not in the mood’ or ‘too depressed to move’ or will – trust me, this is real – feel guilty for feeling so crummy when others are just trying to get their savasana on.”
Pretty much sums up how the past few weeks have been for me: one major pity party whiney fest going on in the cavernous recesses of my monkey mind, and instead of sitting with it and observing the drama of it all, I identify with each of the emotions which suck me further down the vortex of self-pity.
Yoga = life practice. Never a dull moment!
