"No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow." ~Proverb
In our yoga practice when we are held in an uncomfortable posture, we are encouraged to stay in the fire with the understanding that eventually the pose will come to an end. This heat or fire is known as "tapas" and makes us physically and mentally stronger in our yoga practice. Tapas is experienced off the mat when we are faced with experiences that are uncomfortable and overwhelming, experiences that challenge and test our ideas and beliefs and remind us that we have very little control. When our first instinct is to run or hide, tapas challenges us to stay in the heat and be still. And in nature no matter how long the winter, spring is always sure to follow; and the harshest of winter leads to the most bountiful spring.
