Lessons in Resilience

My intention as I began the Gentle Yoga for Resilience series for You Call This Yoga was to bring mental and physical skills to participants in order to develop resilience during this pandemic. Over the past several weeks, I have been observing my own development of resilience. It has been a part of my practice of “svadyaya” or self-study. Never before in my yoga teaching career has there been such a large cultural experience impacting my students as well as myself. As I am teaching about resilience, I am also working to strengthen my own resiliency.

The current situation in the world has led most of us who love yoga to seek out classes online. A quick google search just showed there are lots of choices now and over 75,000 people may be in one class alone–not mine, but some yoga teachers are getting a lot of participants. It doesn’t matter now how many people are in an online class as you won’t be bumping elbows with anyone, worried about props, or any of the other things that might come up if you were to enter a crowded yoga class in a public space.
