Yoga Is The Poetry

Sometimes, I think that we take our senses for granted. Never really exploring what happens when we choose to temporarily handicap ourselves of one or more of those senses. Think about how cognizant we are about how we look, walk, or even speak. Being on the yoga mat is no different.

Exercises are like prose, whereas yoga is the poetry of movements. Once you understand the grammar of yoga; you can write your poetry of movements -Amit Ray.

Sometimes we get so caught up in what others are doing or how they look doing it that we rob ourselves from being fully present within our own practice or experiences. So today, I invite you to close your eyes and focus on the sound of your breath as you invite movement to your body through practicing yoga, dancing around your house, or anything else that floats your boat. The goal is to let go and allow yourself to dissolve into the moment and much like shavasana, it can be a difficult thing to do.

Affirmation: May we continue to be anchored within the present moment connected to our breath, connected to our peace, and finding equanimity in every step. Ase
