Satya: Being true to ourself

The yama satya is about truth or non-lying. We bring this to the mat by truthfulness in our feelings, thoughts, words and actions. In our life on and off the mat, this can be a challenge.
When we attempt a pose that our body is not yet ready for, possibly causing ourself physical injury (ahimsa), we are not being honest. Conversely, as we slowly work thru all the components to prepare our body (usually over time) to complete this same asana with strength and stability, this is satya. Go back to that ego that we discussed in the last post. You may see the connection between these two yamas in your practice. Learning to be honest with ourself throughout the practice about where our body is RIGHT NOW, is satya.
Plan to join our practice this monday evening, January 17, from 6:30-8pm In the sanctuary of the UU Church of Fresno on Alluvial in Clovis!

    If you do not mind me asking, just what are you utilizing to prevent spam comments? I noticed your blog is nice and free from all the spam bots leaving comments. I have another website myself, and I just like to keep comment forms open so I never have to come on and approve them all the time, however the spam plugins I have tried out are failing to stop even the most obvious and simple spam responses. Is there something decent out there that does a good job or is my only hope to keep them moderated or just simply close them all together? Thanks, Katrice Kirschenmann

    I do not think anything can completely prevent spam from bots. WordPress has several applications to prevent this which only appear to work for a brief time before the bots get around it. I delete my spam several times a day. Just the way it is, I guess.
