The practice of yoga is a vulnerable space we share. Practitioner to practitioner, student to teacher, teacher to guru.
I’ve spent the last few years watching the ever-changing world of yoga develop into a commercialised space where all of a sudden to wear little clothing and have the perfect pose, be a vegan, drink wheatgrass, and judge others on how much they are not like you, is the only way you can be a “yogi"… or is it?
We all get swept up in what sparkles and shines. In my first few years of teaching, I felt like I was swimming in uncharted waters, and I was lucky enough to have my lighthouses when I needed them most to guide me back to shore, and maybe didn’t even know it. I made the change a few years ago to move away from what felt like I was standing under bright lights constantly and move to where I had the opportunity to turn those lights off and on when I wanted to.
As we learn, we grow. As we grow, we create. As we create, we share.
Now I share my passion with the world. Constantly learning from life and everyone in it. But what I have created, is my own path, a path that I get to share with others that like it, and sometimes sharing it with others alike, joining it for a while and then paving their own way.
Let what you do come from your heart space, quiet your mind, then your soul will speak. Don’t worry if you feel like you're walking alone, you are never alone when you practice yoga because you are always with yourself. And you are never going anywhere…
Don't force yourself to fit in where you don't belong...
Final words from Tara
One of my passions is holistic self-care, something I have learned about, explored, and adopted as a lifestyle from my yogic journey. Allow me to share with you some Indian self-healing wisdom with Healing with Ayurveda - a month-long full-body unearthing experience.
