Practice self-care! You are the vehicle of self-care for so many. Take care of yourself by maintaining your own yoga practice, including postures, prayanama, meditation and relaxation. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, eat nutritious foods, stay hydrated, and manage your stress.

The direct translation of the Sanskrit word, saucha, is purity, or cleanliness. The yogic path offers many weird and wonderful practices for the purification of the body, by cleansing from inside out, as well as eating and drinking food that are healthy and nutritious. Saucha is also about purity of energy, keeping our homes and environment clean and organised.
But the real gift of saucha is the purification of our minds. It is our grand teacher of self-love, for it asks us to place our judgements aside, and take a deeper look at everything we have labelled as ‘impure’ about ourselves. That deep sadness that follows us around? The impatient streak? Those ‘dirty’ little habits we have when we are alone?
