Full Description

In the early years, I took yoga classes at 24hr Hour Fitness. And therefore, as a member, when the yoga studio was vacant, I could be found conducting my personal yoga practice within the large, clean, quite and safe group exercise / yoga studio.

Yet on one occasion; things did not go as planned!

I entered the empty yoga studio.
I rolled out my yoga mat.
I sat quietly in Virasana.

Soon following, a woman in heels entered the room.
The stereo was turned on, Salsa music began to play and the woman jiggled around the group exercise studio.

At first, I was appalled by her actions. I could not understand, "How can she dance to blarring music while I'm sitting quietly in Virasana?" And then I realized, "Why can't I sit quietly in virasana while she's dancing to blarring salsa music?"

So, I continued with my yoga practice.

You see;

Yoga teaches us to "not be moved by external forces."

Regardless of distractions; one should remain focused.

So, I invite you to step out of the comfort zone of a yoga studio.

I invite you to not be moved by the external distractions.

I invite you to develop your sense of pratyahara [the 5th Step on the Yogic Path].
