  • 6 Rules for Spiritual Practice

    Photo of Austin taking picture of himself

    What makes yoga special? People often make claims that their yoga is this or that referring to something outside of a conventional practice. Then there are the people who know nothing about the benefits of yoga outside of stretching. So what makes yoga different than lifting weights or swimming and couldn’t those activities be someone’s version of yoga? One hallmark of yoga is that it cultivates 2 things specific to it that are not intrinsic to most other activities: being and intention. ‘Being’ in the respect that one shifts the frame of their life from ‘doing’ to ‘being’ in a ways that are subtle yet profound. Intention is in the way that we have the ability to tap into an unlimited resource for creativity and creation in our lives. There are caveats to both however, and restrictions to access this potential as they are only within our ability when we play by their rules, so in this week’s installment of the Yoga Living Project I offer an outline for the 6 rules for spiritual practice that, no matter what the activity, will help cultivate the superpowers of being and intention.
