Embodying Middot


We can infuse any embodied practice, including Yoga, with an awareness of qualities which might deepen our spiritual growth. Each trait can be invoked in any and every pose we do. Practicing these qualities on the mat helps us integrate these qualities into our being. This gives us a greater chance of continuing to exude the qualities we’ve cultivated in the world beyond our mat. There is no ‘perfect pose’ for any given middah. Rather, we can take the same exact sequence any given day and infuse the practice with whatever kavanah (direction or intention) we wish to cultivate within ourselves.
