Why do they call yoga and meditation a practice? Well,to me it is because it is ongoing. It isn’t something you are “finished” doing or mastered and done with. You can master it, which to me means that you have committed to it as a consistent and everyday practice. I know that I am better off in every way if I do it. That my day is better, my mind is clearer and I am able to deal with much more. That is what keeps me coming back. Then it becomes just a habit like brushing your teeth or taking out the trash. You just do it. The fight to do it or not do it is gone. It doesn’t mean that you will have less need for it or more or less challenges or issues. It is a tool to deal with all that is. This thing we are in now.
This pandemic, isolation, social distancing, quarantine etc. is a true test for us to master this habit. To master the practice of dealing with ourselves, our minds, our actions and reactions and to come out stronger and more capable of creating new and different ways of being. For the future of this planet, our health and the next evolution. This aligns also with having a coach. A person to support you through your mental stopping points that hold you back, keep you playing small or negative.
During this time, I have decided to teach a short yoga class each weekday at Noon (PT). Please join us -- we'll meet through Zoom so you'll need to register through this link and then we'll send you the link each day to log on. And then at the end of each week, we'll send you a recording of the classes we did.
Now is the time for support and to relax into ourselves. Let’s use this time to go inside like the cocoon so we can emerge a butterfly, ready to live life from our truest self, from what we know to be right for us. That will then affect the whole, the collective and the greater good.
Stay healthy. Sending love.
