Episode #62: Core Value of Integrity

In this episode, we look into integrity as a core value.

We discuss what it means to have integrity. The difference between integrity and self-integrity. How integrity is an important aspect of your yoga teaching and your self-practice. And how students often don’t hold much integrity around commitments to attend a yoga class. We also discuss a solution to having more integrity.

And how your community, your friends, and the culture of where you live can have a big impact on the importance you place on integrity. We even touch upon the Vedic approach to this, and how a Vata imbalance can be related to a lack of integrity. If you struggle to maintain commitments and uphold your integrity with yourself or others.

Then make a commitment to listen to this full episode and follow through with it, and that will be your first step to having more integrity. 😉
