Striving to a live a life of less attachment. Attachment is expectations, anger and negativity. This way I can live day by day in peace. I still want to experience intense happiness and love though. Yoga teacher training is tiring me out. Im reevaluating meanings and habits ✨
"Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance." Eckhart Tolle - Today was so beautiful! Went for a long scooter ride and this gorgeous waterfall. Saw lots of monkeys and watched the Aarti Ceremony!
Life is such a blessing 🙏 I am so overwhelmed by my experiences and opportunities. We are all capable of achieving things bigger than our selves. Im so interested in the talks about attachment. I believe I do have a lot of attachment to the physical objects in my life. But I don’t have a lot of attachment to emotions and weaknesses and fear and love! How can we love without attachment?
Had a lovely day of learning Hatha Sun Salutation and Vinyasa Sun Salutation B. Learnt about how retaining breath isn’t for beginners (ex box breathing) because the energy of a beginner isn’t pure and when you hold this impure energy it’ll magnify. Had a chickpea pancake (vegan omelette) for the first time and loved it. We did a OM meditation circle at the end of the day and by sitting cross legged all day my hips and knees were in so much pain but once we were aloud to lay down I felt the best release ever in my hips. I felt so grounded and felt so much love!
“The poor focus on needs and the rich focus on wants” Today was my first day of yoga teacher training and it was incredible. The morning started with hatha yoga and pranayama. Then breakfast, mantra and philosophy. Lunch, rest, wash clothes, yoga anatomy, ashtanga vinyasa yoga, meditation and dinner! There were lots if introductions to the courses and teachers and a lot of sitting cross legged. I have a cough now and fell asleep in meditation lol. Have you ever fell asleep meditating?!
Today was an orientation day. We had a breakfast of flattened rice, turmeric, peas, almonds and lime. Napped. Then a two hour fire ceremony of chanting, throwing things in the fire and meditating and lunch. Napped. Orientation about being kind and punctual and received two books to read. After half of us went to town to a cafe for a drink. And then dinner of dal, naan and a salty soup with corn. Now Im in bed reading a little and chatting with my room mate. Tomorrow I have to wake up by 5:30 and hand wash all my clothes at some point. 💫🇮🇳
