“Yoga, as a way of life and a philosophy, can be practiced by anyone with inclination to undertake it, for yoga belongs to humanity as a whole. It is not the property of any one group or any one individual, but can be followed by any and all, in any corner of the globe, regardless of class, creed or religion.” – Sri K. Pattabhi Jois
I attended the IYN (Independent Yoga Network) Annual Gathering/Festival at Gaunt’s House in Dorset at the weekend. It was a beautiful occasion and I have new vigour and inspiration for my yoga classes and yoga-based life. I met such beautiful people and went to lots of different classes, all with something new to offer. Ellen Lee’s class was gentle and wonderful, David Sye’s class was uplifting and full of love. It has now been over a year since I resigned from my full-time position in the world of State education. I can say with certainty that I am SO much happier now. I now understand what it means when people say they don’t count their work as work. I feel that it is nothing less than a privilege to be able to share what I have learnt with others. We are always learning, if we keep all our senses open. There are always possibilities and hope.
