Yoga as an Olympic Sport?

Krishnamacharya_mysoreschool

I have been discovering so many things during the last months.

This blog is talking a lot about yoga but also, about where yoga takes you: physically, mentally and spiritually. And the conclusion, if there is one, is:

Isn´t all just the same?

Isn´t all just my body-mind-spirit mixed together, trying to find some certainty in the ocean of uncertainty that it´s this moment, life?

Here it´s the link for an article I wrote for elephant journal about Yoga as an Olympic sport. The idea it´s has been around for a while now…

So, what do you think? 🙂

Mens sana in corpore sano (part II)

During the last months I have been meeting a lot of people that doesn´t practice yoga at all and, many of them are athletes or have a strong passion for climbing, running or skiing. Meeting them have been really inspiring for me because I have seen that behind the physical discipline that any sport requires, we can find a lot of really interesting points of view about life, mind and existence.

I wrote a post about this a few weeks ago and today, thanks to elephant journal, I found this video where Sakyong Mipham –a Buddhist lama and marathon runner- talks about the connection between body-mind and awareness.

Maybe for some of you the connection it’s obvious. If this is the case, I encourage you to analyze what hides behind obvious, it can be interesting. All of this, at least for me, has been a really interesting discovery. J
