In times like these, where our daily fast paced life has come to a sudden slowdown, it can be stressful and frustrating. While this situation is very difficult for the world as it is a global crisis, one should simply learn to FLOW & LET GO rather than to fight or flight. In these times, Yoga will help you in having a positive outlook, cheerful demeanour will help you have a balanced attitude.
Written 5000 years ago by Muni Patanjali, in the Patanjali Yoga Sutras,
The stressors are,
“Avidya asmita rag dvesha abhiniveshah kleshah”
which translate’s to Lack of right spiritual knowledge, ’I’ ness, Attachment, Hatred are disturbing factors.
Not only did he mention the stressors of life, but he also gave us the solution!
“Maitri Karuna Mudito Pekshanam Sukh Dukh Punyapunyvishyanam Bhavna Tashchittaprasadanam”
To minimize stress, develop qualities of friendliness towards happy people, kindness and compassion towards people who are unhappy. Show respect for virtuous people and indifference towards vicious people.
The changes in one’s attitudes, behaviour and life-style which would help in inducing the feeling of sharing & caring, warmth in friendship, concern, love and respect for the whole world acts as an antidote for the feeling of hopelessness, helplessness and loneliness that may come in the absence of proper relationship with the world around.
‘NO POISON CAN KILL POSITIVE THINKER
NO MEDICINE CAN CURE NEGATIVE THINKER’.
In ancient times they believed that a balanced diet brings equanimity of the emotions, body, mind and soul.
It was called,’Mitahara’.
Because after all, We are what we eat…
So being mindful and absolutely conscious of what fuel you are putting in your body is important!
This workshop will consist of Asanas, Pranayama & Dhyana along with tips for diet.
Finally, staying united in the fight against Covid-19 is of utmost importance right now. Even though we aren’t physically connected, due to the wonders of technology we are still able to stay virtually connected. This goes to show that no matter what, the world is one family and that we will not give up!
