I've been a student of Purna Yoga since 2004; a student of life for much longer. For me, the beauty of Purna Yoga is that it offers so many ways to change:
In addition, there is always a (Purna Yoga) lifestyle choice that will nudge something loose. Outwardly simply things like washing my hands when I enter the house, showering when I'm home for the day and keeping a clean house.
The shoes at the door are there to keep the outside dirt out but they are also evidence that I value boundaries in my life; a reminder that I get to choose what I let in. What I eat is another means of affecting change.
When I feel like I'm in a rut, I know that in a moment I can choose to do something differently and then something can release and I can smile more deeply; feel more connection with my spirit; stand with greater confidence.
And this is why Purna is so important to me.
I feel alive = vibrant, truly happy and grounded with genuine awareness and love.
