I teach meditation and breath work in all of my classes, and I know that just the word itself can seem daunting to students. The assumption being that you'll have to sit for hours and think of NOTHING. This idea is not only inaccessible but it's almost impossible. (If there is NOTHING happening in your mind, I think you might be dead.)
Holy Moly! I'm 30! Through death, and heartbreak, letting go of past dreams and creating new ones, unbelievable traumas and loss, and hard-won healing - physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally - this winding path has led me here. In a strange but not accidental way, I've come full circle. And it is time to CELEBRATE!
Day 13 - Open Your heart! What better day to practice opening our hearts than Valentine's Day? Wheel Pose is one of my favorites! It requires strength and flexibility, lifts your mood and energy levels, and literally flips your world upside down! (Just like love!) #30to30MBY #itsacelebration #yogaisforlovers
Believe it or not, my 30th birthday is just around the corner and as I reflected on what the last 30 years have brought and how I wanted to celebrate, I could think of nothing better than diving heart first into a yoga celebration with all of my nearest and dearest (by that I mean YOU!)
I always love the equinoxes and solstices. I love what they represent in our earth and how that always seems to parallel to our own lives. And mostly I love any reason to reflect. To take stock of how far we've come and what we still need to do to press forward.
