So often when I practice I have goals and steps to developing poses and postures. After lovingly releasing my practice for almost a year I stepped back in, in early July. Once again I had lofty ideas of 'getting my body back'. However my mind-body suggested otherwise. To simply delight in the experience of feeling better in my body. From bottom to top releasing tensions with compassion for how muscles and facia were holding and with gratitude that my body can move once again. I've chosen to carry this sublime understanding into my fall.
Rather than charging into the change of season with big ambitions and goals (which absolutely have their relevance) I am witnessing instead the awesomeness in the moment that I all too often miss by looking to the future. How precious life's moments are, how absolutely perfect each of us are without changing a thing, how blessed we are to practice yoga, breathe clean air, and look into the eyes of a loved one.
May your fall be filled with the beauty of the season.
