Most Yoga/Meditation out there these days is what I call "empty calories". It's like health food that doesn't really have any nutritional value. Like the chips section of the natural grocery store. We love the chips!!! But they're not really doing anything deeply nourishing or restorative for us in the long run.
Empty calories yoga has a healthy label but is really just junk food. It feeds superficiality and keeps people stuck in the endless loop of "never-enoughness" and incessant "progress".
Then there is the organic, locally grown, vibrant, rich and nutritious Yoga/Meditation that simultaneously cleanses you and nourishes you. It's medicinal and sacred and radically healing.
This is the Real Yoga that restores the natural habitat of your soul and psyche so that you return to SUPER NATURALNESS. Vibrant, balanced, full of aliveness, integrated into an ecology of deep wellness. Wholeness.
Real Yoga is the practice of returning to our full HUMAN-NESS, which is WHOLINESS.
Yoga/Meditation is meant to help us rest, reconnect and repattern our inherited/learned patterns of grasping, separation, and fear.
Do you want to be reinforcing the cultural conditioning of superficiality or nurturing your true nature/naturalness that is perfect and alive???
