We can study ourselves (svadyaya = the study of the self) and find out more about who we are and our own nature if we can have more chances to play, especially as a group. Just look at how easy it is to see when watching some bears.
I think they were having a blast with the pool and the swing set and everything. The combination of calm, an absolute sense of belonging and playfulness never fails to come clear when watching bears.
But we don’t even really need props to play. I mean, yoga practice may be to us, what a simple swim is to these otters!
We are not so different. Really, just take yourself outside and see what you do. A part of your nature will show itself, if you will simply let yourself play, and then observe what it was like (svadyaya).
