I teach Restorative Yoga with blankets, blocks, straps and bolsters. We use modifications and stay in one position for up to ten minutes, allowing the tissues, bones and muscles to release with depth. I remind my yoga students to get comfortable because the difference between bliss or torture can be off just one eighth of an inch. It is the same with our attitude. Whatever circumstance we find ourselves in, it is our responses that inflict pain or joy in the psyche.
We interpret and transform according to how we engage in our surroundings. Each moment, each challenge and every single twenty-four-hour period, is an opportunity to be our best selves. We treat our environment and others with the same way we behave towards ourselves.
No matter where we come from or whom are parents are, it is our task therefore to educate ourselves about the world and ripen into a modern maturity.
