Following on our Focus of this month let’s dive into how you can incorporate Līlā into your daly life and practice:
Embrace Playfulness – Play helps us grow
Playfulness helps us grow and well it is fun. Play allows us to connect to our creative selves and gives us the opportunity to grow and explore some freedom within our lives. Your yoga mat is a perfect playground. It’s not about picture-perfect poses; it’s about enjoying the journey, finding pleasure in the process, and maybe even surprising yourself along the way.
Play creates freedom and release those habitual habits
As humans we are creatures of habit and daily routines is what our lives are all about, but what if we give ourselves the permission to “change things up” and open ourselves up to the possibility of more freedom within our habits and routines??… What if we bring playfulness into our lives and our yoga practice and see how magic can unfold?…
How you ask? – YOU PLAY!
Roll out your yoga mat without any pre-planned script or strategy and let yourself discover the freedom of play – move, breath and do what feels right in that moment right there. Embrace your inner child and let your yoga mat become your canvas of self-discovery. You may just completely surprise yourself at the outcome of what you are able to achieve in this “playful space of freedom”. Give yourself permission to do something simply for the sake of enjoyment. Remember, Līlā is about embracing the joy of the moment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
