Who is your true self?

My yoga practice became more dedicated when my body started to demand it. It was the stiffness and pain in my neck jaw and shoulders. That stiffness and pain is still there. But it is reduced.

As I spent more time in the yoga world I started to hear the term “true self”. And I wondered how I could ever find that; who I really was.

I thought it might be something that made me different from others.  But it’s not like that. It’s something that makes me the same as everyone.

It is very simple. Your true self is bliss and the stillness you sometimes find in the moment. Underneath everything you think you are is this peace.

Yoga helps you to unite with that bliss. We move our bodies into different postures to become strong and flexible.  This reduces stiffness and pain, and that helps us to find our true self.
