Signs of Yoga Progress

Many people may wonder how they know if they are progressing in yoga. Most of the time, it isn’t about how deep you can go into a yoga pose, but HOW you are getting there. Like life, people remember who you lift up as you travel through life and also notice who, if any, you step on.  Here’s a measure I found on Facebook for those interested in more lifting, minimal to no stepping.

The 12 Signs of a Spiritual Awakening

  1. An increased tendency to let things happen rather than make things happen.
  2. Frequent attacks of smiling.
  3. Feelings of being connected with others and nature.
  4. Frequent overwhelming episodes of appreciation.

  6. An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment.
  7. A loss of ability to worry.
  8. A loss of interest in conflict.
  9. A loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others.
  10. A loss of interest in judging others.
  11. A loss of interest in judging self.

If there aren’t any signs of progress so far, perhaps some peaceful rest and relaxation is in due order. I recently went to a FREE tea tasting at Tea House Tea Room at Muse for Life.  205 Hilderbrand Dr.  Sandy Springs, GA.  They are having an awesome water and tea ceremony on Sept. 20th 8pm to celebrate their official opening.  I learned so much about tea, it could have been a workshop.  Best of all, the vibes are just what the yoga guides ordered; uplifting, warm, kind and fun! It “filled my cup” and then some.  Tea can be a powerful rejuvenating experience especially when it’s from a high elevation and fine quality. It is also another way to access the Yoga Loka – “World of Higher Consciousness”. Looking forward to getting some of my favorite tea, clay cups, pots and starting to host my own tea ceremonies. J Wanna join? We all need to find those outlets that are totally fulfilling and not draining at some point.  Best wishes on your quest. OM. PEACE. LOVE.
