Did you know the Latin origin of ‘Discipline’ means to ‘impart knowledge’ or to ‘enlighten’
I recently dedicated a space (a few floor tiles) to my yoga practice. I arranged a small altar, a candle for focus, a little bit of nature for inspiration and perspective and a jolly fat Buddha that my dad gave me years ago, because it makes me smile.
I can’t believe the difference this has made for my self practice. Since I created this space and began the ritual of lighting a candle I haven’t missed a morning’s practice.
The effects of regular and disciplined practice are really amazing. It helps keep you grounded, balanced and centred. A constant amongst all the inconsistency. As a bit of a free spirit, chuck the mat down any where any time, kind of girl, my eyes have been opened by this kind of routine. 🙉
