I would like to give a special namaste out to “stares in the mirror yogi”. Yes, practicing yoga will make your body look great, but that is not what class is about.
The true practice of yoga is teaching us to be present in our body, instead of off in our monkey mind of endless thoughts, like “do I look good in this pose?” or “how close is my foot to my head?”
Next time you come to class, think of the mirror as your monkey mind in physical form. Whenever you catch yourself glancing at it, come back to your practice, to your breath and moving meditation. This will not only help you in class, but also help you be more present when you are with friends, family and coworkers.
