Election Prana

If you’re a yoga practitioner, you’ve already felt the external forces around you. It may seem like chaos. It may be full of concern, grief, and sadness. It may also be full of hate, fear, and attachment. This is when your practice matters most.

With so much external prana out there to influence you, whether or not it’s coming from Clinton or Trump supporters, it all is having some impact – it’s okay – you’re human – change is constant.

We can be grateful we can rely on the YAMAS for guidance:

  • Ahimsa
  • Satya
  • Asteya
  • Brahmacharya
  • Aparigraha

We can be grateful we can rely on the NIYAMAS for guidance:

  • Saucha
  • Santosha
  • Tapas
  • Svadhyaya
  • Ishvara Pranidhana

And we can be grateful we can recognize how the KLESHAS cloud our thoughts:

  • Avidya
  • Asmita
  • Raga
  • Dvesha
  • Abhinivesha

Feel what you feel and notice what comes up.

Take a deep breath.


Repeat and repeat and repeat…
