Robert Burns Day & Scottish Yogis
Since Yoga means the state of connection rather than the way in which we practice getting there, we can say there are and have been many many many Scottish Yogis!
Today is Robert Burns Day. And Robert Burns was of course a Yogi! Poetry being a beautiful practice of presence and appreciation and connection with our experience. Many a folk tonight and this week will be honouring the poet’s recognition and celebration of the unity of experience in our world expressed towards the ‘wee sleekit, tim’rous’ mouse he encountered. Contemporary neuroscience is developing an extensive range of evidence that supports traditional Yoga and Buddhist practices of body, breath awareness and of cultivating compassion as a way overcoming the collapse of our heart and brain and dissociate from the experience of self and other so that we may better support wellbeing in our world.
Another Scottish Yogi is expressing his beautiful connected condition through Yoga asana in beautiful Scottish locations. A lot to …. appreciate here! Kilted Yoga!
