I used to do yoga 1-2 times a week but over the last year have mostly slacked and practiced only sporadically. I have decided it is something that I need to make a priority. All of my gym time puts a lot of physical stress on my body, and life in general adds a healthy dose of emotional stress. Yoga seems to be the best way to counteract the damage. I went to a really great class this week, the teacher was a good mix of mind/body and really emphasized deep, calming breaths. It must be the mind clearing aspect, but I find a lot of life paralells while in strange positions. The teacher challenged everyone to try an arm balance (which I cannot do but tried) and several people fell. He commented"It's ok if you fall as long as you are breathing peacefully when you do". I just keep thinking about that. Bumps along the road are inevitable, but finding a place of peace is what helps us survive. Not sure if this makes as much sense to anyone else as it did to me, but if not, think about it a little longer.

I respect the place in you that is of love, of truth, of light. When you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, we are one. Namaste
