Dear Yoga for Health Students and Friends,
It's been 4 months since we all were stopped in our tracks. Remember when it was day to day with everyone trying to follow the news, the rumors, the closings the fear? It was different for each of us yet we were all a part of a world-wide shift that we still are trying to understand. There is an old adage that reminds us that, “When one door closes, another door opens, but sometimes it's hell in the hallway.”
That image, being in the hallway, able to look at the door that has closed on dreams, plans, and expectations and able to look down a very long hallway at a door that has begun to open, but what will be found there is still a mystery. So the question I have been pondering is this: How do we best spend our time while walking down the hallway, into the future world, that presently has no clear shape or substance?
I know what has been working for me: Daily walks in the woods. Talks with close friends, daily Yoga and meditation time, cooking and eating healthy foods, reading and writing (alone and in Zoom groups), keeping my mind focused in the present and on the positives, opening my awareness about the inequalities and injustices in our world.
The most healing of all activities for me is my Yoga practice. A consistent practice offers us a space to pause, breathe, move, rest, and recuperate. It brings balance to our bodies, minds and emotions so we can step back into our lives with greater joy in our hearts. Yoga is an amazing discipline that never ceases to soften and strengthen our spiritual longing for happiness and peace.
I have begun to teach small, in-person, classes when invited to a backyard or deck that is safe and lovely. I am also available to meet in person or on Zoom for a private session/semi-private class. Below is the schedule.
Let's continue to share the practice of Yoga as we move forward, one day at a time.
