From Rev. Jivana Heyman, founder of Accessible Yoga:
That’s the beauty of Yoga. It gives us the chance to move beyond the busy mind, with all of its stress and anxiety, to connect with a deeper place of peace that is untouched by the craziness of the world. As Yoga practitioners, we know the power of these practices, and that they are truly lifesaving. Especially during these times, when news and social media are so stressful and disturbing, we all need a healthy dose of our daily yoga practice to keep ourselves from completely falling apart.
But, we don’t need to hide from reality to experience this deeper truth. In fact, once we are well connected with the peace inside, we can get involved in serving the world from a place of love and compassion. This loving service can bring about the change that we want to see. This loving service is spiritual activism, and we are seeing it revealed in the peaceful resistance that is building and growing.
