The dictionary says, A Calm Endurance showing high moral standards.
I am definitely experiencing the endurance part this week. Just when I reach a plateau in my practice, I need to take time away from studio time to practice at home. It is February vacation from my daughter's school.
I am a Parent.
I am home with daughter or she comes with me to the studio. Sometimes this works out blissfully, and sometimes not so much.
I do have an at-home practice. For me, all 8 Limbs are present when I am in-studio. Simply, there are less distractions.
Thus, staying calm and enduring days of Monster High Dolls and the Disney Channel requires high standards, like a detailed Pranayama with a new teacher. Or endless Chaturangas in a Hot Power Yoga class with a slippery mat.
My chanting sustains me and of course, my yogic BFF, Ganesha.
