All human beings ultimately belong to the same family, with the capacity for fulfillment, self-realization, and liberation. Negative states and emotions are not intrinsic to the mind, which is why they can be overcome when the right conditions, such as yogic practices, are met.
Yoga can be aimed at the physical, intellectual, or intuitive aspects of human experience. Meaningful practice is a call to make hallowed use of the body, speech, and mind in order to eliminate the causes of problems, such as pride, aversion, bias, attachment, or unawareness, and to cultivate the causes of freedom, peace, and happiness.
Marcela has been a student of yoga since the 1970s, a yoga teacher since the 80s, and a Tibetan Buddhist nun since the 2000s. She’s profoundly grateful to each and all her teachers, and aspires to live by their example.
