When we talk about Yoga in the western hemisphere we are often talking only about the physical postures, or Asana, which is only one of the eight aspects, or limbs, of Yoga.
The postures have been primarily marketed as exercise and this marketing is dominated by images of cis, white, thin, flexible women "finding their bliss".
And hey, there's nothing wrong with being any of those things...or feeling good. We all want to feel good. We all want to avoid suffering. That is part of our shared human sweetness.
The teachings of Yoga suggest that much of our suffering on this earth is caused by these very same sweet desires. To seek pleasure. To avoid pain.
Have you seen this in your own life?
Yoga suggests a practice, not of escaping these desires, this suffering, as that would be an escape from being human, but of carrying it all more lightly.
A multifaceted practice of noticing that there is something beyond, or within, the constant churning of seeking and avoiding.
Placing attention on the less changeable aspects of experience.
Resting in a larger container.
