Alignment: More Than Just Aligning the Bones

“Good alignment allows you to do more with your life effort,
while poor alignment requires more energy to sustain.”

This quote is a paraphrase by one of my students from something Donna Farhi (an internationally renowned yoga teacher and author) said. It is so powerful. Read it again. Good alignment lets you do more with your life effort. What a thought! We often get caught up in our day-to-day chaos and stress and forget the big picture. Regardless of your belief system, I think we all agree that we can have a life that makes a difference to the world or a life that takes away from the world. Having that choice, we all would choose to make a positive difference, to leave the world a little better than we found it. Good alignment gives you more energy to make a difference. Hmmm...that helps bring more meaning to my yoga practice.
