Yoga and Money

May 17, 2011

First of all, thanks very much for the approximately 26 billion pieces of mail you sent after I posted a short blog about the cost of yoga classes. It may take me a while to get back to each of you on that one.

It seems it’s a contentious subject.

The mail indicates we’re far more conflicted about money than we are about yoga. No one wrote saying, “I have piles of money but I can’t stand yoga.” It was all about how much we love class and would like to go more often. How lovely is that?

Your mail made me wonder something. We know that yoga spills into every little bit of life: into relationships, food, career, parenting, political choices, etc.

Has yoga affected your relationship to money?

I suppose yoga has strengthened my impression that money is energy, and that the healthy flow of money into and out of my life has to do with the health (or not) of my own energy, of my confidence, my resistance, my fear, my flexibility and strength.

That’s one new yogini’s thought. What’s yours?

Thanks to yoga for showing up everywhere. Thanks to you, always, for the wonderful conversation,
