According to our figures, more than half of non-yoga practitioners never spend time focusing on themselves. However, this practice called the inner ecology, allows to discover our own nature and our inner world.
It is a very strong practice at the emotional and spiritual level, which can even sometimes help heal painful emotions. Dive into this article with us to find out what it’s all about, and understand how to become a better person.
What is body ecology?
In 2020, everyone knows what ecology is. It used to be a scientific term for ecosystem studies. Today it is much more an attitude that means respect for nature and the environment.
When we talk about this type of ecology, yogis have chosen to call it the outer ecology.
If they chose to add this clarification, it is for a reason. Indeed, for them, there is also the notion of internal ecology. It is a set of practices relating to the knowledge, respect and work of its inner nature, of its inner world.
To make it simple, it is the art of discovering, or deepening our connection with ourselves. We become an explorer of our wild self, venturing into our psychic, emotional, emotional and spiritual life. It’s not always easy, and there are some nice surprises ahead of us, but it’s a journey worth experiencing.
Knowledge is extremely important because in our contemporary society, no place is left for this introspection. We care much more about our appearance, our wealth, our property, but we take too little time to find out who we really are.
However, it is a trend that tends to be reversed, and the inner ecology is gaining ground in people’s heads. More and more, we are looking to find ourselves, and this has a great chance of becoming the primary concern of our culture. It is in any case strongly advised to work to become a harmonious, happy, and desirable civilization.
Who is it for ?
From an early age, we ask ourselves (sometimes unconsciously) questions about our role, about our person, and this is very beneficial. It’s never too early (or too late) to start, and few can boast about not needing it. We are constantly evolving, so it is a practice that we must have on a regular basis to become better people.
Experimenting with interior ecology
Have you ever wondered what would happen if, instead of wanting to correspond to social and societal norms, to protocols established with the aim of alienating us and locking us up in a world created from scratch, to play a role or a character, we took our responsibilities and we assumed ourselves as we really are?
This long and fascinating journey is a test of life, which helps us to meet our inner being, is what interior ecology proposes. We’re trying to unravel the mystery of who we really are, but how do we get there?
Many schools and practices are born on both sides to try to make you believe that you will succeed by buying their different products or by consuming their different services, but we must be careful about everything that can be found on the internet. Indeed, we must find the right address that will make us discover our beautiful interior.
The link with yoga
Through meditation, introspection, art, or forms of yoga such as viniyoga and/or yoga nidra, the inner consciousness is awakened and the normally untapped space is open to the outer world.
When you feel a flower blooming in the sun, when you look at the hills that stretch out on the horizon, when you listen to the jump of the waterfall, and at the same time you manage to settle in this state.
During meditation, a form of dialogue is established with nature. It’s almost as if our inner world has found a mirror neuron in everything on the outside. To this end, regular and regular training must be provided. Usually society has no time or means, which is why some yoga teachers use symbols and other mediators.
The image is also called: the root of a tree draws the energy of the earth to fix its feet in the ground; the branches extend to the sky and open their arms; the leaves absorb the energy of the sun, thus releasing more subtle feelings. When we teach the postures, we encourage our students not to think only of themselves. Yoga is not about egocentrism.
