I have a favorite instruction in class: “Release what no longer serves you.” It can be a challenge in most yoga classes, focused on fitness as they often are. I teach differently. I am asking students to release expectations, worries and their need to ‘know’.
Release is a daily practice for me right now. I am unsubscribing from email newsletters, purging my bookshelves, simplifying relationships, and practicing radical self-care, because I feel something new coming. I do not know what it is, but I will be ready for it. Ready with space and time for this new seed to settle in and grow.
