Yogi's & Yogini's,
If you haven't experienced one of our classes recenetly or at all, now is the time.
I receive many emails each week from people who want to come, but don't for a variety of reasons (fear, body image, never practiced yoga before, etc). Trust me when I say that those feelings or emotions will quickly dissolve and usually after the first 10 minutes of class. That is feedback from some of the people who have written to me previously with the same concerns and now see some major differences within as a result of their practice.
Yoga is a practice, your practice! Like most things in life, the more we practice, the more we improve and or gain. However, yoga is a slight exception to that rule as there is no final posture, no scoring and no end game (at least for the physical side of your body). I've been reminded that very same message by some of my teachers (many times and still).
To understand this concept at the surface level is pretty straight forward and makes sense. However, what we demonstrate when we are on our mat is the true test of how well we understand it.
So the next time you come to your mat, allow it to act like a mirror that is reflecting your inner image, your truth or even a reflection of whats happening inside for you. Let your mat reflect one good thing as you settle into practice. For just a few moments, find gratitude and thanks for whatever it is.
See you in class!
