This is the first of a three-part series on practicing authenticity in daily life. Today’s post explores authenticity through the chakra practice of Let Your Yoga Dance. Part 2 looks at authenticity through the lens of VIA character strengths. Part 3 brings inSPIRED Let Your Yoga Dance into the mix.
Let Your Yoga Dance for Authenticity
I like to use movement techniques to help me stay authentic. My favorite of all body practices is Let Your Yoga Dance. It helps me stay real and congruent. Why? Because not only do I get to dance through all the chakras (the body’s energy centers), but I also get to practice the yamas and niyamas (the yogic codes of conduct), and metta (lovingkindness meditation). These ethical elements are woven into the practice. As I evolved and grew Let Your Yoga Dance into what it is today, I made sure to include these elements in order to be constantly reminded of authentic kindness.
