I am a practitioner of Yoga, off the mat, implementing yogic teachings in everyday life. It’s an ongoing, continuous improvement lifestyle that makes “the man in the mirror” a better person.
Yoga starts on the mat. But, the teachings become most powerful and transformative when applied off the mat. The word yoga literally means “to unite.”
Ideas, put into action by our children are what might just save our world. This is a primary reason we founded, bendi baby yoga. It gives me a space to teach the principles of peace and hopefully allow people to feel more connected, therefore, more responsible to figure out how to do their part in service to a greater good.
So, can Yoga save the world? I don’t know, but making a conscious decision to start teaching principles of what matters most in life is a good place to start. It would be my highest honor, if my 2 daughters were influenced by their papa, in the way they treat the Earth and other people, the way they pray, and understand how connected we all truly are.
