I teach a yoga course for children entitled “stones of compassion”. What I do is teach the principals of yama and niyama through stories and life experiences. In order to make it creative and enticing for the kids, I give them a special “yoga stone” when they have grasped the meaning of each principle. So, in preparing for the lesson on “saucha” or cleanliness, I was sitting on the floor with my silver and gold sharpies, writing saucha and cleanliness on river rocks over and over again. After about 20 rocks my mind began drifting and I misspellt cleanliness.
I forgot the “in” and ended up with “Cleanless”. WOW! I laughed so hard at my seeming mistake, and realized it was really a message to myself. To just chill out, and literally clean-less. I find that I could spend all day cleaning, cooking,doing laundry yada yada, and never fit in time for a story, a practice or a swim.
A friend of mine recently said that a clean house is the sign of an unlived life. Well, I thrive in order and cleanliness, but of course there is truth to her words. If we spent our lives at home, polishing, waxing, dusting, mopping,vaccuuming, doing dishes,there would be a lot of “living” that we would miss out on.
Again, in my true Libra form, I say, everything in balance.
Dhana's classes are of exceptional quality and she has many devoted students. As a nutritionist she is well versed. She presented her "Kick the Sugar Habit" talk, both at my studio and at the Pan Pacific Hotel, where she was well received. I highly recommend Dhana as an Instructor. She is educated, conscientious, safe and thorough.
