My class this morning was grounding. I attended a very basic, Alignment I, class today and I am relieved to be starting back into the yoga classroom at a slow and comfortable pace. Alignment. Oh, it is delicious. In Alignment I I am not sure we did more that six postures, over and over and over again. Very slowly. I was able to achieve a smooth flow. Breathing was part of the posture. It has been so long since I did practice for myself that I forget how wonderful breathing into the posture is. Oh, I teach this, I cue for it, I even watch as my yoga peeps fill their chest and shoulders and engage in the flow of moving to the next posture. Today for myself I was able to enjoy this deepening. I was able to feel the pose without any adjustment. My breath was the adjustment. Practise today was fulfilling. I am reliving my morning class with an appreciative and joyful sigh.
There is a motivation growing within me again make that daily time to move my body while I clear my head. I am practising meditiations every day. It is delightful, crazy loving and motivational. And now, adding the physical energy of moving my body intentionally I find this compliments and nourishes my spritual meditation moments. This is the type of care I have wanted to give myself for decades now.
This week, I hope/expect//plan will be wonderful busy with yoga classes, meditations and podcast recording. I was able to head out to The Loft on Sunday. I spent 4 hours recording meditations and researching sound controls. I love the peace and quiet there. I revel that all I have to do is open any door and a strong whooshing whisper of the crashing waves on the coastline fills my senses. I love the smell of the ocean as the wind waves through the sea grasses in these dunes. I am happy here (and hear). I am proud to be recording at The Loft in the dunes. It seems so natural a place to record. I fell into it. It just happens, and I am filled with contentment. Now that I am home I am amazed to have this opportunity. And I a proud of myself for picking up the reigns to do that something I have wanted to do. This so induces in me a joyful sigh.
Listening to the ocean is like listening to the ocean breath. It too seems a joyful sigh. And it continues to breathe.
