Ahimsa is the first of the Yamas (do’s) and the meaning of the word is translated into non-violence. 

To me yoga is the journey from the mind into the body or others might say to the heart. It’s been a journey of thinking less and experiencing more. It’s been a go to in all aspects of my life, and the world of yoga is so vast. In the beginning it was a scary world to enter, trust me, the ego really pulled all the tricks it knew to avoid entering this unknown world filled with possibility. Almost two years ago I started my first yoga teacher training, and my world was turned up side down. 

This time around it has given me great confidence in myself. I am now ready to practice unconditional love, understanding and compassion, not only towards others but to myself. Everything start with thyself. 

Two years ago when I started to grasp the fact that we are the creators of our own reality, I was filled with confusion.  

As I looked closer at myself and the life I believed I had, I was able to be loving in what I found painful to see. Instead of being judgmental I was compassionate. I listened to myself, I held myself I started to love myself. 

Today, Ahimsa, is a reminder of being kind towards yourself so that you can spread that loving energy out into the world. 

I found a quote when I googled Ahimsa, and it really stood out to me.  ”Peace in oneself, peace in the world”. 


For the past couple of days I’ve been putting a lot of focus into this topic, and through out the rest of the month this will be my theme.

As I spend more time with this I will share more of my experience and thoughts.
