“He alone teaches who has something to give, for teaching is not talking, teaching is not imparting doctrines, teaching is communicating.” – Swami Vivekenanda
A Guru is a teacher- either within or external. We can find gurus within ourselves or we can seek them without. It is equally as valid to seek our own wisdom as it is to allow someone outside of ourselves to see us and guide us. Tune in to see what you need most in this moment- do you need to listen in or seek out? Often, we need both 🙂
Flow Pose: Kapinjalasana
Kapinjalasana incorporates many components – balance, core strength, back bending, quad stretching – which can be a lot to accomplish in one feat. How can this pose teach us about boundaries, acceptance, strength and perseverance? Follow the guidance of your inner Guru and proceed with growth in mind.
Restorative Pose: Diamond Pose
Diamond Pose offers a posture of rest and reflection. Props can be a wonderful addition to make this pose more comfortable and accessible. Take time here to soften the body and let the mind quiet, seeking wisdom from within. We often search for answers outside of us, but when we have the time to settle into our own bodies, the truth might be waiting before our own eyes.
