Peace

In the face of hostile comments when I post my opinion on Facebook. Once again, yoga saved my life.

Release

 

imageI 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.

In the Groove

Now that the kidneys are back in their home groove, things fall back into place here too. Our morning yoga practice for example. This is the balm on my soul because through experiencing those meditating moments beyond daily concerns, I can then move through and past what seems insurmountable, and stay true to my heart. It’s my daily gift to myself.
