Scott considers the intentions we have around our yoga practice and whether these change over time, and shares why he sees yoga as a formal contemplative practice.
Yoga, contemplative practice, people and community. These are what we are passionate about, that move us, that keep us doing what we are doing and that makes SYL what it is. Our blog is a reflection of how we share here at SYL, the people we meet, who we invite to teach and importantly what we see as important in directing our awareness to see how we move in the world. What is a yoga studio if not somewhere you can let go from the world, find a part of you that can be nurtured and then work on that in daily life. Our articles reflect this. Hopefully some of these words resonate.
Yoga begins with listening. This month, Scott explains why listening to others is at the core of why we practise yoga, and how we can navigate the differences in our own viewpoints with love and compassion for others.
This month Scott invites you to imagine if any part of your life had been different; he explores how skilfully reflecting on the past and stopping to smell the roses in the present moment keeps you on a path to the future.
As we move into the new year, Scott looks back over 2017 and reflects on some of the most popular posts from the Stillpoint Yoga London blog, to help give you a fresh perspective on your yoga practice.
This month’s blog post tells the story of how the SYL community evolved out of a shared experience of grief.
