Seva & You: How to Be of Service #yogachat

sevahands

What is seva?

Seva” is a Sanskrit word meaning “selfless service” or work performed without any thought of reward or repayment. In ancient India seva was believed to help one’s spiritual growth and at the same time contribute to the improvement of a community. The holiday season is a perfect time to reflect on the spirit of service and how we can make a deeper connection with ourselves, our loved ones and our community.

The goal of this week’s Yoga Chat is not about adding more things to do to your holiday “To Do List”. This week we hope to shed light on simple ways to incorporate service into your holiday traditions, as well as discussing yoga practices that can nurture you through the busiest time of the year.

Here are a few questions to get you thinking:

  • What does the act of selfless service mean to you?
  • What is the feeling behind service?
  • How can you be of service to your family, your friends? Strangers?
  • What steps can you take to develop your own personalized plan of selfless service?
  • How can you use your yoga practice to stay tuned into the “spirit of generosity”?
  • How do you find time to meditate during the holidays?
  • How can you use your pranayama or breathing practice to keep you centered?
