The environment is often thought of as something inhabited or lived "in". You do more than live in environments, however, you are an integral part of them. This lecture explores how yoga traditions invite you to make a deeper connection with your world. Consider how your environments are intimate features of yourself and through them you create and change the world. Props Suggested: A bolster or a blanket or a chair.

Living things are called "sattva" because every thing has its own nature and exists from within it's own terms. Nutrition for one living thing is inedible to another; what is toxic to one, is food to another. Every question of self-care returns to your nature, leading back to how you create an equilibrium that allows you to flourish. Take part in this conversation that asks, how do you create balance true to your individual nature? Props Suggested: A bolster or a blanket or a chair.
