Remember when we chatted about the yamas and niyamas of yoga? One I’ve been thinking about lately is brahmacharya – the practice of moderation.
Brahmacharya (moderation, non-excess): Brahmacharya teaches us to recognize that moment of “just enough” so we don’t move past it into uncomfortable excess. Maybe it’s by pushing away the plate of french fries or using our pent-up energy for a run. By focusing inward, we keep our bodies healthy and energetic. (Lululemon)
Is there anywhere in your life where you’d like to practice a little more brahmacharya? With my recent life changes I’ve been trying to find more balance, and brahmacharya certainly plays a role here. Currently I’m learning to balance the following:
- Yoga Practice & Teacher Training
- Work (post to come – but I’m officially a Lululemon Educator!)
- Cooking & Food Planning
- Friends & Family
- Time with Hubs
- Training Pup Dog
I feel so blessed to have the time and energy to devote to these pursuits. Now my goal is to continue finding balance and practice moderation in all areas.
Is there anywhere in your life where you’d like to practice balance or moderation? I should probably take a closer look at my chocolate consumption 😉
