Everything in practice has meaning, intention and purpose. This is what I love about yoga. There is no such thing as just doing a yoga pose. Each posture has an effect on me physically, emotionally, mentally and energetically. And like any human, I feel my emotions in a very physical way. I wanted to share a short peak of my personal practice during Elle's nap today. I have been dealing with a lot of frustration lately. Turns out, it is very hard to be a loving mom and run a company and still make time for your own needs. The truth? This was my 3rd attempt at posting a practice this week. My computer also crashed while uploading my online course that I teach and I lost the entire 2 hour session. It hasn't been the easiest week. But this is something that I know to be true. Yoga poses are not just random postures. They are profound and unique and we can choose the asana that we need for our specific circumstances at any given time. My practice draws from yoga therapy and ayurveda, so I can experience release of these frustrated feelings. I use twists to help myself move agitation and anxiety out of my tissues, so that I can feel like I can breathe again. I use core engagement and arm balances to reinstill my confidence and to strengthen myself to move past this challenging point in my life.
