Day 10: Finding balance

Tying bits together...I completed the first week of my 40 days of yoga and then took one day off. Actually, it worked out quite well. Even though I did not make it to my yoga class at all this week. It is always amazing to me what happens to the mind once that attitude shift has happened. Without wondering whether I should practice or not I can focus on making it happen. Finding that slot in the day that seems to just conveniently open up when the time is right.

For me, that is in the morning around 6 am. There were a few mornings I even woke up before my alarm went off. And the one day I took off, my mind was like a juke box randomly assembling its own mantra compilation. Hilarious!

The last few days I felt inspired to change my random asanas in the morning into more of a practice. Giving it more structure. Something deliberate. Practicing the same sequence for seven days in a row. What a concept for my easily bored scatter brain.

Earlier in the week, I just sat and waited to see what would come up. It seemed like the right thing to do. It was a rather emotional morning…

Overall I slowed down my morning practice. I have been having very busy days at work and felt a profound need to get really grounded. Finding balance…

This photo reminds of what yoga is to me. A safety net, all around me, if I care to look. Enabling me to follow my path, one step at a time, tying the loose ends together to a beautiful passage way that creates a structure taking me to the other side…
