yoga student trying to connect with her soul

When I think about what the soul means to me right now after doing a yoga teacher training (ytt), I feel as though I  have some perspective to share, but I also know that I have continual knowledge to  gain.  

Oneself: Soul

When determining what the soul (or spirit)  is one must first recognize the need for a wholehearted relationship with oneself.  The soul is not visible. 

It  lives within us. It is our true most authentic self. It is a vulnerability. In order to  realize our spirit we must consciously allow ourselves to unfold. 

This requires trust  in ourselves to pull off our armor and the image of what we think we should be, in  order to be who we naturally are. When we are truly at peace with who we are deep  within, we will embrace our spirit and it will shine.  


In Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton,  Ottawa, Montreal, Hamilton, Toronto, Halifax, St Johns,  London, Greece,  Bali, Thailand, Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, New Zealand, Hawaii, the soul is a light. 

This light that our soul represents emits, like any light, sight. This light allows us to see who we truly are. It allows us to recognize the  immense power and beauty that each of us holds. 

Once we reach our soul we are able to see and experience life in the most real and true fashion. We take that light  and we share its glow outside of ourselves. This aliveness that the spirit emanates,  gives us the power to live our most true life; as well as experience it in the truest of  ways. 

The Soul

Everyone has a soul, but not everyone experiences soul. We all have the light  deep within us; however, not everyone is able to reach it. 

The recipe for living a  soulful life, and reaching our inner light includes being aware of who we are and  being able to confidently sit with whoever that is. 

Silence is a great place to find soul.  In this atmosphere of quiet and stillness we can more easily go into ourselves. If  only for a short period of time, touching base with our souls allows for the many  moments that follow to be experienced at a new and deeper level. 


Therefore, spirit means the truest form of us, which is like a light found deep  inside, and can be reached through silent reflection. Reflecting from within reveals  our spirit and allows it to be shown outside of us. 

To be soulful is to live authentically.  We are all able to reach our spirit, but it requires honesty and vulnerability.
