Aparigraha – Non-Attachment – Day 1

Check out our new 30 Day Challenge Page

Good Morning Yogis! We are continuing on with weaving practice of each of the Yamas into our day. Last time we practiced the opposite of the last of the Yamas Aparigraha/non-attachment by practicing gratitude, but today we will take it a step further.

Today’s Daily Yogi Practice is to actively exercise Aparigraha/non-grasping with our actions. Today we will take action without making expectations of a particular outcome. Need some ideas? Sometimes we do nice things for others, hoping for a particular result and we then end up disappointed if the other person does not react how we planned. Try today to not hold expectations for another person’s behavior. Or perhaps set aside a few hours to relax, or enjoy time with loved ones, or just go for a drive without a pre-set agenda, and see where life takes you!

Please comment and share how you decided to practice Aparigraga today. How did it make you feel? Always remember, be kind!

  1. Last night I had set high expectations for myself to get a bunch of things done today, but really wasn’t feeling any of it when I woke up. I gave myself permission to ditch my plans and take a few hours to relax and it ended up being just what I needed.

  2. My husband and I did some packing for our move and then allowed ourselves some time to relax, watch a hockey game, and cook together

  3. Yesterday was our wedding anniversary and we both had a busy weekend. We ditched our plans to go out, ordered in and watched some good TV. It was just what we both needed.

  4. Ooh not making plans is my specialty! Over the weekend in the woods we had no plans whatsoever. Today’s the husband’s day off so the plans are up to him!
