Resist, and the tide
will sweep you off your feet.
Allow, and grace will carry
you to higher ground. The only
safety lies in letting it all in –
Danna Faulds: excerpt from Allow
To fully Allow, we must first Soften. Sometimes, we need to soften the tension in the pose. Breathe softness into the painful spots. Soften the sharp edges of our thoughts. Soften. Soften. Soften…
Then, we must Soothe. It’s All Good. It is okay to be uncomfortable. It is okay to feel imperfect. It is okay to be angry on the mat. It is okay to cry on the mat. It is okay to laugh ridiculously on the mat. It is okay. You are okay. Soothe. Soothe. Soothe.
Only then can we fully Allow and fully drop into the Surrender. To melt into the river of life and be carried on the waves of Grace. To fully and deeply…Belong.
If you are intrigued as to how to carry the Yamas and Niyamas off the Mat and into Life, join Janet and I Wednesday evenings beginning March 22nd as we explore the Yamas of Yoga. RSVP HERE (via Zoom)
Join us each Monday at 9:30am for live Zoom Yoga. The classes usually start with some of these juicy life nuggets and reflections to cherish and ponder and take off the mat into life. If you can’t make the live time, there’s a recording to watch in your own time and place. This is the PERFECT practice to fit into your perfectly perfect full life. Register below under: workshops. This week’s practice includes a short daily practice.
NEW: Living Well: Practicing Ayurveda meets monthly. We’ll discuss a new topic in Living Well and how to incorporate those practices effectively into our (sometimes very full) lives.
