Writer’s Theme: COMPASSION – ahimsa

October 1, 2015 - October 31, 2015

Ahimsa Sanskrit: अहिंसा;  is a term meaning ‘not to injure’ and ‘compassion’, it sits at the foundation to all the other yoga ethical guidelines or ways of living.

What is ahimsa really all about? Not killing spiders? Refraining from eating meat? Is it as simplistic as turning the other cheek? How can we truly and authentically embrace this concept as a way of living? How can we practice this concept on our mat and implement it in our daily lives? As yoga teachers, how can we introduce the practice of yoga as a system of living that extends far beyond postures? How can we use the postures as a doorway to yoga philosophy and its ethical guidelines?
