Namaste Yoga 137 Keepin’ it Real Yogi Patience with Dr. Melissa West

http://www.melissawest.com
The second attitude that Jon Kabbit Zin recommends we bring to mindfulness is patience. He states that, “Patience is a form of wisdom, it demonstrates that we understand and accept the fact that sometimes things must unfold in their own time.” In our yoga practice we can practice patience towards our own bodies and our own minds. We can accept our body as it is in this moment and practice patience for its unfolding in its own time. Edward Bulwer Lytton says that “Patience is not passive, on the contrary, it is active, it is concentrated strength.” In today’s yoga practice we will engage this concentrated strength as we direct our patience towards the active unfolding of our hip and hamstring muscles.
