Let’s talk about TAPAS.🔥 In yoga philosophy, “tapas” means discipline; the process of removing impurities through a consistent yoga practice. It is one of the Niyamas (internal ethics) and a component of kriya yoga. Tapas refers to the yoga poses which keep the body fit and healthy. Tapas comes from the root word tap, to “heat” or “cleanse”. 🔥 It’s having the discipline to show up to your mat even though it would be easier to sit on the couch, watch TV and eat junk food. TAPAS is both the physical exercise of yoga and the awareness of the foods you eat. It’s having the intention and taking action (ie. going to bed early in order to get up for a 6 AM class) in order to take care of your body for overall health and well-being. Through the disciplined practice, the inner physical, emotional and mental worlds are positively influenced which opens a path to healing. The poses of yoga bring us on the spiritual journey of understanding and living with strength, determination, courage, grace, love and peace. #UPYTeacherTraining #discipline #growth 🔥

In the first book, Samadhi Pada, of the Yoga Sutras (philosophy), Patanjali suggests to look at the life you are living and to look at self-imposed obstacles, including the fluctuations of the mind (monkey mind / reactive thoughts to the outside world). The yoga practice helps us find clarity and a new perspective. We can settle the fluctuations of the mind, which are often based on misperceptions and assumptions and can lead to suffering. How do we realize our truest intentions and operate from this place? How do we live a more intentional and joyous life? With regular yoga practice and meditation, the mind becomes steady and calm. From this place, we let go of distractions, remove perceived obstacles or limitations and live with intention. It takes diligence and steady practice to reach our fullest potential. We are no longer tossed around by life’s waves, but instead we can stay steady and true, sailing toward our intentions and goals.💛 #yogaphilosophy #steadypractice #movebreathebeinspired #UPY
