If you want to see real progress, it’s not the tools that make it happen, it’s your consistent action using them and your state of emotional being.
It’s a bit like saying, “I can’t eat because I’m too hungry” or “I can’t put my coat on because it’s too cold”! You come to yoga BECAUSE you want to be more flexible!
I feel like nature and I have once again become well acquainted. I realised that the spirit they talk about in the world of shamanism is nature. It is a combination of the elements. From the gross of Earth, Water, Fire, and Air to the more subtle of Space, Light, and Spirit itself. In my experience, this embodiment is yoga.
