What do you think of when you bring 'yoga' to mind? Lean, strong, young bodies bending and stretching and contorting themselves? Breathing techniques and vegetarianism? The creator of Zeropoint Yoga, Bec Duffield, turns that on its head!
Bec has a gift for demystifying yoga and helping us to recognize it as a comprehensive handbook for ‘Life’ - imminently practical, accessible, and helpful. She talks about commonly held misconceptions about it, the aspects of yogic systems beyond the physical, the purpose of the physical practice and how yoga is for people living as householders, out in the world, just as it is for renunciants. It’s for those who don’t consider themselves ‘spiritual’ just as it is for those who do. It’s non-denominational and inclusive – if you have a good teacher.
And if you want to engage in just the physical postures, as Bec did at the beginning of her yoga journey, that’s fine too.
You’ll enjoy the richness, practicality, and down-to-earth wisdom of this episode and of Bec – a yogi living life, running a business, raising her children and drinking beer! Who knows - you may just decide yoga could be for you...
