We are all attracted to certain things. We often pursue activities we love, and why wouldn’t we?
But we need to make sure there is a balance. If we love cardio, we need to do some restorative exercise. If we love fast yoga, we need to practice slow yoga. If we are lethargic, we need to choose activities that demand more energy.
Not all the time, just sometimes.
According to Ayurveda, if you are a person with a vata-dominated constitution and you naturally love fast yoga classes, you should make yourself go to slower ones sometimes.
We practice yoga to restore balance in body and mind, but our choices also influence that balance.
It is important at this time of year when things get busier and the weather gets colder. We need to pay attention to our energy. We need to observe our body as we would any other complex living creature, with curiosity and respect.
