friends stretching it out and getting ready for the waves
Larry kept repeating "stillness is your power" while teaching class, especially between the postures...."stillness is your power...calm, focused, centered, yeah?"
I am focused on my stillness and my yoga asana practice certainly helps me. Everything I need is in my breath so today I will surrender to my breath, one breath at a time.
Lauren, my amazing yoga teacher, is rocking plank and guiding us through one of her heart-filled classes..... lucky me!
only day 3 of my very own reset yoga challenge and after class tonight I was at the expert savasana level for like 10 minutes
Lucky me I got to practice behind the wild yoga unicorn and Susan with the one and only Cynthia Wehr teaching. The purple palace never disappoints and what is more motivating than a wild unicorn? Nothing. 🦄
my shot of choice after a sweaty yoga morning
time to bend it again on this beautiful Friday like a good yogini should.
When I face myself in the mirror, and really look, I let go. I let go of negativity. I let go of wrong expectations and perfection. I let honesty in. I let gratitude in. I can go out to face the world, even when I am not at my best.
My first advanced class in a long time and, lucky me, led by the one and only Cynthia Wehr.
It does not matter if things aren't perfect. The only perfect posture is an honest posture. My practice is my time to connect with my body and mind - to be present and okay with where I am.
(Liliane - thanks for the post, kind words and pics on Facebook. I am looking forward to teaching again.)
Upward-facing dog to the rescue! This pose helps me so much after class when I am tired before I start more back bending....
