Yoga, Judgment and Lea Luna in The Luna Shala
In this episode, Rachel is immersed in leading her third yoga teacher training while Luna is with grandma and Dennis is at an Iron Man race. Rachel reminisces on all the programs she has led since Luna was born, from the ones that were super overwhelming while breastfeeding to the ones that are easier now that Luna is older. Rachel is used to hosting large groups, but it was having a baby that made her realize she has a deep desire to merge her community with her family life and be more accepting and supportive of families as a whole. This idea was challenged recently when she shared a post of Luna laughing in the group of teacher trainees and received incredible backlash for allowing her daughter to join the circle. This leads her into a deep conversation on social media drama, her own triggers and the epidemic of judgement that exists especially for mothers. Disagreements are part of life, but the next time you find yourself disagreeing with someone can you bring more compassion and understanding into the discussion? Can you sit with what triggers you and separate your feelings from the actions of others? At the end of the day, we are all more similar than we are different. The small actions of support you can offer to others matter more than you think.
