Don’t Check Your Ego at the Door

Posted By Gaiam Staff On August 7, 2012 @ 3:05 pm In Fitness, Personal Growth, Yoga | No Comments

Does your ego [1] keep following you to your yoga mat [2], no matter how many times you try to check it at the door? Yoga instructor Jason Crandell encourages us to think it through and consider this in a different way. “We want to invite our ego to come with us so we can see it, understand it and have a relationship with it [3]. Notice and don’t be surprised when ego arises. Practice seeing and witnessing its existence.” For more information, visit JasonYoga.com [4].

This video is part of a series sponsored by Gaiam TV [5] in collaboration with Big Happy Day [6]. BHD founder Kasey Luber interviews yoga teachers across the nation to bring you their best advice, whether you’re a yoga teacher, a seasoned yogi or a beginner.
