Lotus Yoga Off The Mat Challenge
Day Six: Yoga and Nature
Day six of the Lotus Yoga Off The Mat Challenge theme is yoga and nature. How does your yoga practice connect you with nature? How does nature connect you deeper in your yoga practice? What connection do you find between yoga and nature?
In response to these questions, these are my thoughts.
Yoga is about inner peace and calm:
The sound of waves lapping at the seashore
Watching blooms of clouds float by in a bright blue sky
A gentle breeze moving your hair across your neck
Yoga is about self-awareness and self-love:
>> The first morning frost, crisp and fresh on your skin
>> Crunching autumn leaves underfoot while hiking in the woods
>> Watching the sunset over a summer lake
Yoga is about strength:
The grandeur of mountains
The fury of winds
Yoga is about joy:
Inhaling the scents of new spring: salty sea; fresh-cut grass; a lilac bush
Dancing in the rain; jumping in puddles
A snowball fight
Yoga is about life:
I look forward to hearing your thoughts and experiences with yoga and nature! Remember to leave a comment on the Lotus FaceBook page or other social media with the hash tag: #lotusyogaoffthemat.
