Compassion for Others, Building Trust, and Unity!

Goddess Pose by Girls

Niyama: Saucha (purity).

If we are pure in thought and mind, we will not hurt others around us. Rather, we will try to help. In this way, we come to the partner yoga series, where we learn how to build trust with the other person. If we are not pure in our intentions towards the other person, they will not be able to survive; and by proxy, neither will we. So, we must be compassionate towards the other person, their needs. Working together is a part of human social life. Understanding the other, their needs, and forgiving is an important part of resolving conflicts.

We performed a number of poses, including the all time favorite goddess pose, and of course downdog.

News on Domestic Violence

Since I've been blogging about yoga and domestic violence, I thought I would share Dr. Phil's stories as well. The television icon is asking people to break the silence! http://blog.drphil.com/2010/09/09/our-ninth-season/
