Jon Kabat Zinn the founder of MBSR 8 week course asserts, “mindful yoga is a yoga of wholeness that has nothing to do with what your body can or can’t do in any given moment, or with how your posture looks. It has everything to do with the sincerity of your effort, with how awake you are in your life, and how embodied you are in the only moment in which you are ever alive–which is always now. Mindful yoga is a specific attitude and attentional stance that we bring to our practice, both on the mat and in daily life: namely, a refined moment-to-moment non-judgmental, non-striving attending to the entire range of our experience. This orientation is in complete accord with the core principles of yoga as a science of the body and its energies as well as an art of inquiry, exploration, human development, and ultimately liberation. And we always err on the side of being conservative, with a spirit of letting the yoga do (and undo) us rather than thinking that we are doing the yoga. In this way, we minimize the of injury, even tiny muscle pulls that can occur when the mind gets overly enthusiastic and stops listening to the body.” (http://yogachicago.com/2014/03/mindful-yoga-movement-and-meditation/)
Humans come in all shapes and sizes, with all types of injuries, pains, aches, challenges and skeletal, tensegrity (the relationship between the connective tissues, the muscles and the skeleton variation.
Humans also come with emotional and behavioral differences, they have varying values, opinions, attitudes and life experiences. As mindful movement teachers, becoming aware and awake to the differences means to recognise that all participants are infinitely unique.
