Gandhi Got It

yoga teacher training Costa Rica

Gandhi said “I want freedom for the full expression of my personality.”  Yoga has taught me that when we can begin to inhabit the full range of quirky, eccentric, non-conforming pieces of self that make up who we are we unleash Prana. The feeling is almost electric, an upwelling of energy, an inner sparkling. We have access to the unseen field of creativity and untapped potential; new and unforeseen solutions and ideas present themselves effortlessly. There’s an elfin, mischievous side to you in there and you probably won’t find her on facebook. Let’s today shut down computers, leave the cell phone at home, and instead: go for a bike ride with a old college friend or new friendly neighbor, throw a stick to your dog and really pay attention to his ecstasy, kick at the puddles on the sidewalk, run through sprinklers, stop to pet the pigs on the side of the road (I do this often – they love it).

Namaste,

Indira

  1. I so appreciate this poignant post, querida Indira!
    In addition to the wonderful quote from Gandhi, I realize it has been far too long since I have even considered petting any of the pigs alongside the road.
    THANKS and LOVE from NYC!

  2. LOVE this quote + post <3 One of the greatest causes of stress is amputating or neglecting parts of our personalities and humanity to "get it done" and "deal with it." Ghandi had such an expansive understanding of freedom… we still have so much to learn from his example.
