30 days: day 11 of mats and minds

9:00 am class with cheryl, and chloe the new the greenrock.ca intern.  yeah!

yin.  low and deep and slow.  one of the main yoga things is to keep your mind clear on the mat, be present, focus on breath and make space.   that usually happens (with the scattered ‘when will this be over’ thought coming to mind from the edges).

today my mind would not clear.   something was on it, had been for hours, and it would not go.

so, in yogic fashion, i stopped fighting and let the thought reside.  i meditated on it.   since it was a yin class with loooong poses, it worked.

and my meditative mind on the mat cleared way for the rest of the day.
