You’re invited to #yogachat June 6, 2014: “Yoga & Non-injury: Ahimsa on the mat”

Nonviolence means avoiding not only external physical violence but also internal violence of spirit. You not only refuse to shoot a man, but you refuse to hate him.

~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

Join us this Friday, June 6 at 10am PST / 1pm EST for our world famous #yogachat Tweet chat. We will be discussing “Yoga & Non-injury: Practicing ahimsa on the mat”. 

Through our shared self-introspection, we intend to develop and deepen our  asana and meditation practices, and transform our daily lives.

Here are some questions to get you thinking:

  1. First, what is ahimsa & what does it have to do with yoga?
  2. What does it mean to practice ahimsa on the mat?
  3. Why is it important to practice ahimsa during asana practice?
  4. What are some consequences of not practicing ahimsa during our yoga practice?
  5. For teachers, what are some ways you can integrate more ahimsa into your asana practice & teachings?

See you this Friday at 10am PST and we look forward to the discussion!
