observation: something is working.
the monday morning began with a ten-year old who didn’t want to get up. getting to school on time is a daily objective around here. at around 8:05 it became clear: not going to happen. typically a realization such as this leads to chaos. not today. she was late for school. not ideal, but not a disaster. acceptance. heard about that on the mat.
i made it to yoga on time. yin yang is…
The best of both worlds! Enjoy the sweetness of your Yin practice followed by an energizing Yang flow to prepare you for your day.
when people say (when I say), “up the ying yang” they may not mean what they think they mean. today I got it. still on fire from yesterday’s vinyasa, the class started out with drop pressure, let the earth hold you yin. it was shift change, but i was able to get into it. slow breaths, gravity-based practice where you sink into the pose, sink into the earth, it felt in a good way.
ying zing bang – the yang. the music changed – fast and strong. holy mother – what’s next…. poses empowered, defy gravity. go with it, and let fly. wow. it all soaked in with a savasana. puddle-jumped out of the studio.
a little later, in a yin yang like balance, came the sunshine.
