I was a fraud. I was talking the talk, but not walking the walk. I was faking it, until I made it. While I believed all of these things, I only believed in all of these things for other people… I could never be like that.
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.
