#Practice Practicing

I remember when I first starting practicing yoga. Some of my friends would give me a hard time. They said I was becoming less available, and why was I spending so much of my time on this "yoga thing". To me, something about practicing just felt right.

Sri K. Pattabhi Jois said, "Practice, practice and all is coming." Sticking with my practice during good times, and bad, even when no one really understood why, made all the difference. I had discovered myself anew, as if I had just landed on some majestic island, with an abundance of sacred resources. I didn't have to rely on anything or anyone outside of myself for validation.

Eventually my friends came around, and many of them now practice yoga themselves. Through staying with my practice, I learn something new about myself each day, and am more open to this great adventure called Life.

I #practice practicing. What does your Manduka help you practice?

Here's how some in our community are #practicing in their lives:

Elizabeth Wintour:
" Manduka helps me practice with my imagination. Not since middle school have I had so much fun as a cow, a crane, a fish, a camel."

Teachasana:
"Today I #practice love: you must take care of & love yourself in order to love others."

@MandukaYoga helps us practice sharing, teaching and learning from our students and cyber sangha here and at our site. #teachasana #practice

Joanna Subias
"My manduka and I are the usual love story, we met, bonded and now no one could tear us apart. We have shared happiness, tears and growth..."
