Who Do You Love?
From the desk of Rachael Lappen, RYT… Why is it that in our culture we only associate one day a year, Valentine’s Day, with love? We get so focused on the expectation of directing that love to others on February 14th that we lose sight of the fact that love is most certainly in the air each and every day. A consistent yoga practice reminds us to love ourselves on the regular. When we commit to connecting to ourselves, then we can pass that love on. In fact, Bhakti Yoga is an entire practice in and of itself centered around love and devotion. Remember the grade school days of depositing a slew of Valentine’s cards in each of our classmates’ mailboxes? Think about your yoga practice as a way to send a Valentine every single day. Your love will radiate through you so you’ll be going green and saving a lot of paper in the process!
