Namaste to you dear one, the light in me sees the light in you
Welcome to day 29 of our 30 days of yoga together. I hold so much gratitude in my heart for YOU, for accepting my invitation on this journey, and here we are, day 29. Our time together is certainly not coming to an end, and I sincerely hope you continue to cultivate a daily practice bringing in more of what resonates with YOU. Perhaps you have given yourself the space to dive into your practice in a new way and perhaps you’ve allowed more time to simply sit in silence and integrate.
“Oh, I’ve had moments, and if I had to do it over again, I’d have more of them. In fact I’d try to have nothing else. Just moments, one after another, instead of living so many years ahead of each day.”
N. Stair, (85 year old woman)
Where ever you are this is a beginning. The real gift is when we are able to wake up everyday and approach our life with the attitude that today, and this moment, is a beginning. This is one of the basic fundamental attributes to a mindfulness based practice and life approach, is to enter every experience as if it was the first time you had ever been there, your breath, movement, relationships, problems, the gift of a meal, the taste of a fresh berry or a square of chocolate, can you allow yourself the opportunity to enter your moment to moment life experience as if it was the first time. A beginning.
Every day I approach my mat I unroll it with reverence, acknowledging I am being given a fresh opportunity to discover myself.
“If we have ideas about how our practice should unfold, these will often get in the way, preventing us from honoring the phase that is actually with us.”
Today we’re going to explore a beautiful posture of strength, control, balance and grace. This is going to look different for each of us – and it will look different every time you enter the posture. Be sure to hold on to support if you need assistance with balance postures, move softly into the different phases and depths available for you to explore in this shape, you may just hold your foot behind your body, you may just bend your leg at the knee, you may tip just slightly forward, or you may dive right into Natarajasana – dancer, a posture of grace. Wherever you are is perfect because where ever you are is where you are – you can’t be anywhere else. I would love for you to be very gentle with your practice today, allow the quality of a beginners mind, and move with curiosity.
