Harm rhymes with karma

“Not harming ourselves or others in the beginning, not harming ourselves or others in the middle, not harming ourselves or others in the end is the basis of enlightened society. This is how there could be a sane world…The ground of not causing harm is mindfulness a sense of clear seeing with respect and compassion for what we see. But mindfulness doesn’t stop with formal meditation. It helps us relate with all the details of our lives.” pema chodron

About Joyce Englander

I teach weekly yoga classes in New York City, which focus on moving mindfully and gracefully with the breath. I believe that learning yoga is similar to learning a language, and the more you are around it the more fluent you become. This blog is an opportunity to share my thoughts and re-visit lessons from class; to create a bridge for students to translate their classroom experience into real life. I am interested in how practicing yoga can help to improve people's lives and reduce needless suffering.
