Practice Santosha on the mat and off the mat. Santosha is ‘contentment’, being content with your practice, accepting what is and letting go of achieving the ‘perfect’ posture. We are all too hard on ourselves at times and Yoga not only teaches us to be patient with others but also with our own Self and goals.
Next time you get on the mat, watch the breath, the flow and let go of forcing your body into a pose to appreciate where you are on the mat and off the mat, be content, practice Santosha.
Join one of Lily’s yoga classes when you’re here with us and practice Santosha.
