the cycle of 30 days is almost complete. the first class was sunrise flow, and so was the twenty-eighth. i love how it is. on the mat i have gained the strength to burn through the vinyasas, flying challenges, and to rise up from the core in warrior I. perhaps more impressive, i’ve gained the strength to let go of the vinyasa and take child’s pose when it seems right.
off the mat, I’ve found a steady place to be in myself. there are, of course, many OMG! instances through the day, but I am finding ways to keep perspective. one trick is to pause, take a twist on being the moment and see it as if it happened five moments (or five hours or five days or five years) ago. the pause lets me wring out the stressful emotion, breathe, listen, and follow on with a gentle response.
so far so good.
