Day 5 – No Shave Yoga Event – #yogabeardsunite – My teammate, @adampolhemusyoga posted today, “It is not just about physical health, mental health is equally important. Meditate, read a book (local library!) or learn a new skill, these will all help develop mental plasticity that you will serve you well as you age.” In the spirit of the Niyamas, today seems like a good day to devote to स्वाध्याय or Svādhyāya which means “one’s own reading” and “self-study”. I decided to try to immerse myself in this copy of The Srimad Devi Bhagavatam to flex the ‘ole brain muscle.
No Shave Yoga Event is a group of yoga teachers who have banded together to help spread the word, grow hairy, raise money and inspire health through the practice of yoga. Our fundraising team is called Yoga Beards Unite and we aim to raise at least $1500 by the end of November. Please help us achieve our goal by donating to our team page at https://www.no-shave.org/team/yogabeardsunite. When you post on social media please tag us to show your support and share your story to help us in our endeavor. Together we can make a difference! @adampolhemusyoga @brianmilleryoga @davidmiliotis @gregnardi @juankgalan @nativeyoga @willduprey
