The infinite is indeed within. Deep in our own psyche — within everyone’s psyche — lives the framework of the human journey. These structural archetypes are the substructure of thousands of years of our collective hopes, dreams, desires, failures, and fears. These archetypal, shared experiences of the collective unconscious provide a common architecture for the stories — that is, the myths — we tell ourselves about our humanity, about our struggles and triumphs. When dressed up, brought to life, and vivified through our imagination, our mythic stories allow us to witness what is deeply inside us at play in front of us. Myths give us the context and the capability to bring our inner world out.
It’s fair to say that yoga has been around for a while and has come a long way since its hippie days of the ‘60s and ‘70s. I remember going to my first class when I was twelve years old. I went with my grandma and fell asleep. I thought yoga was for older ladies in leotards and didn’t take another class until after college. I had no idea the practice could be so dynamic and physical. Luckily, yoga has gained a lot more attention over the years, and many people now have a good idea of what it’s all about as well as its benefits. But still there are a few common misconceptions worth addressing.
