By changing how the body moves, people can appreciate how good they can feel. When people become more capable in their movements, the image of what they can do expands and they feel more effective in their lives.
Yoga, like other arts, helps us see more clearly. It is through the arts, including the art of yoga, that we develop the capacity to witness difficult things that otherwise are repressed and hidden away.
In uncertain times a yoga practice can be a sanctuary, a place for retreat, and I encourage students to find the time for these moments of respite.
