Now to say the retreat went off totally without a hitch would just be plain ol’ lying and the weather was certainly not on my side, but all in all I feel really good about what I was able to create and the energy brought together by these 14 incredible souls. I feel so good about it in fact, that I thought I would write a little blog post about it and give you all a little sneak peak at the magic we made.
I wrote last week about WHY I do my best to maintain a personal meditation practice and offered all sorts of reasons why you should too! Today I'd like to get into the HOW. Of course, just like your asana practice and just like our daily lives, there are a million ways to approach and practice this ancient art. But these are some of the things I do to enhance my meditation situation.
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 21 - Be Fierce We are each a warrior in so many ways and these poses allow us to tap into that part of ourselves. Each Warrior poses offers poise, balance, strength, flexibility, stamina, and grounding. In our Warriors we hold our ground, fix our gaze, and prepare our selves mentally, physically, and spiritually to face what ever may come.
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
