COMPASSION with YOGA
Compassion is when you show someone you care. People need compassion when they are hurt or unsure. When you show compassion you are being loving and helpful. You can be compassionate to another by finding out what they need and giving it to them. If they are sad they might need a hug. If they are lonely they might need a friend. If they are hurt they might need a Band-Aid or medical attention. You can be compassionate to yourself by listening to your needs then acting on them. You can be compassionate towards your friends by listening, helping and understanding. You can be compassionate towards strangers by helping a mother with her stroller, an elderly person do something they can’t do for themselves, by opening a door, giving a smile, and by forgiving someone for making a mistake.
