Dedicate/Day 21. Light.

IMG_4046.JPG

On the Mat: 20 minutes.

Observations: Light. Finding little pieces of it as I investigate the curves and movement of my body. Doing what feels good always, not forcing the expectation of myself or others.

Insights: Honoring the light that is me. Even if it feels like a tiny little spark right now.

As well as honoring the dark that envelopes me and embracing wholeheartedly this contrast of light/dark dance. It might be painful, but it has so many growth lessons written its journey. A reminder to keep present and remember. Night comes, but the Sun always arrives in the morning.

But, I’ll Take Today: The uncertainty still sits in my heart, but today’s practice might be the best thing I do for myself today. And that is good. 

Tomorrow: Day 22. Steady.

Love, C.

Dedicate/Day 20. Lead.

On the Mat: 21 minutes.

Observations: I was more than ready to lead through my pain and grief today. I showed up and it was the best thing I could do after losing someone yesterday that had lead me out of my own past heartbreak to a world of welcoming love and acceptance at one time. I also let my body do the moves without my mind getting in the way. Overall it was a warm embrace on the mat that I needed more than anything in this world right now. 

Insights: Today Lead spoke to me. After this week of praying unceasingly and never giving up until I had to after his passing from this life yesterday. I was reminded of how in this life we are all called to lead each other in ways we often don’t physically experience at times. 

But, through our souls with a whisper of I love you instead when distance is between us. Or lead with our hearts instead by listening to the call to surpass our limitations. Realizing sometimes our limitations can be are strongest allies in finding a different path to serve others.

But, I’ll Take Today: Where Nameste took on a whole deeper meaning-Honoring the ones we love that our knowlonger with us. And it is Okay to cry while doing yoga.

I cannot begin to say how much this home practice has meant to me and Adriene’s tender spirit to serve all of us by sharing her wisdom and love of Yoga. What a gift. 

Tomorrow: Day 21. Light.

Love, C.

Dedicate/Day 18. Love.

On the Mat: 23 minutes.

Observations: I showed up. Modified after being away from my at home yoga practice since Feb. 9th. Definitely finding what Feels Good again. Yes, I lost a lot of what I had gained in strength, but again I showed up. And that’s what really matters today. Done is fun. 

Insights: Love. How awkward it is to say that to myself. But, I’m gonna show up more too with those three little words. I need to and the reminder that yoga helps me with that.

But, I’ll Take Today:  The showing up far from perfect and whispering I love you a bit more. 

Tomorrow: Day 19. Listen.

Love, C.

Dedicate/Day 17. Learn.

On the Mat: 26 minutes.

Observations: I’m back to Dedicate. Today’s practice was perfect to re-enter. My Strength was still there as well as my heart. 

Insights: When Learning something new in your life, their will be hiccups. I’m a creature of habit and recently I have had some awesome change come my way that have also made it feel like I was put off my usual course:) Expanding me in a way that I had to take a breather and readjust. Make room again for the New, Old and Let Go of the what isn’t a part of my story now. Today’s practice was a big embrace of that. Yoga is far more than Physical movements:) What amazing blessing it is and glad to be back on the Mat this Morning.

But, I’ll Take Today: Reminder to leave our worry in the future and stay present. 

Tomorrow: Day 18. Love.

Love, C.
