While spending way too much time on Facebook this evening (as I do every evening), I spotted a few powerful statuses from my yoga hero, Tara Stiles.
Check out these zingers:
When your teacher becomes the person you rely on for your ideas, your language, and self image you’re in a cult. Even if it’s called yoga.
It’s never a good idea to take on a guru. All the answers are right there inside of you waiting for you to discover them.
It’s easier to go on a diet than pay attention to what your body needs. It’s easier to do what someone says than to decide for yourself. It’s easier to give your power away than to rise and take a stand. Fortunately, you have the ability to choose.
Preach it like ya teach it, Ms. Stiles!
