What do the yoga students learn and practice in the yoga class?
Regardless of what are the different backgrounds, experiences, physical and mental conditions, and intentions of the yoga students, all and everyone are learning and practicing about compassion and non-violence without forcing the body and mind beyond its limitation, respecting the body and mind in the present moment now as they are, desirelessness/intentionlessness, detaching from worldly passionate egoistic traits, turning the mind inward focusing on the yoga practice, being in the present moment, letting go the past pleasant and unpleasant experiences, letting go the future hopeful or fearful anticipation, observing the impermanent changes, observing what is going on in the body and mind, going beyond the impermanent physical condition and the impermanent state of the mind, developing patience, acceptance, adjustment, adaptation, accommodation, forbearance, determination, perseverance, self-discipline, self-responsibility, self-independence, non-blind agreeing/disagreeing, non-blind believing, non-blind following, non-blind practicing, non-blind propagating, non-attachment, non-identification, non-craving, non-aversion, non-judgment, non-comparison, and non-expectation, during the process of learning and performing the different yoga asana poses and exercises, the breathing exercises, the concentration exercises, the sound vibration exercises, and the relaxation.
What the body can do or cannot do in the present moment, is not important.
What the mind knows or doesn't know in the present moment, is not important.
What the mind likes and agrees with or dislikes and disagrees with, is not important.
The mind doesn't need to do or practice what it dislikes and disagrees with, or feels uncomfortable with.
It's about not attaching towards what the mind perceives in the present moment now. Without craving towards what is pleasant and agreeable. Without aversion towards what is unpleasant and disagreeable. All and everything is impermanent.
Allow the mind to take its own pace to be opened, or not.
Do one's best while performing all actions, and allow the fruit of actions being what it is.
Open minded - Non blind-believing, non blind-following, non blind-agreeing or blind-disagreeing, non blind-practicing, and non blind-propagating.
Inquire towards the truth of everything, including all the teachings of yoga, coming from anyone and anywhere.
