Today in my class we looked at the yogic concept of Ahimsa (non-violence) and related it to Matthew 12:31 (love your neighbor as yourself). We focused on non-violence in action, speech, thought, toward ourselves and those around us. Sometimes being kind to ourselves is harder! In our asana (pose) practice we talked about how challenge is good, but pushing ourselves is a way of being violent/unkind to ourselves.

(Thanks to www.holyyoga.net (teacher training material) for the insight to compare ahimsa with that particular scripture. I found additional info about ahimsa on the www.yogajournal.com website. Both are wonderful resources!!)

Blessings,
Liz
