‘In a society that almost demands life at double time, speed and addictions numb us to our own experience. In such a society it is almost impossible to settle into our bodies or stay connected with our hearts, let alone connect with one another or the earth where we live.’ Jack Kornfield
to encourage ourselves to practise, we sometimes make our yoga practices very short – and what a good idea this is.
however, i’d like to put a word in for the longer practice too. even if you only have the chance to do this every now and again, yoga rewards a slow settling in.
it is not a question of adding more postures or breathing practices but rather of giving whatever you choose to do, more space.
you can let go more thoroughly, relax more deeply and give peace the chance to rest in you.
