At the beginning of each practice I, as you all do, set my intentions. I also set forth to the universe and my creator a word of thanks.
" Thank you for bringing yoga into my life to help me work on mind, body, and spirit. Thank you for letting me, be here, right now in this space."
There is not a day, that I do not think of my daughter and how, without her, we would of never started this "summer project" years ago that was something different and new to explore for us both.
The muse of this of the blog is the ever growing sense of power I feel as my yoga practice and cross training grows. Not power in the egotistical mind frame. But the awareness of true power that lay within our bodies and mind. Our body was built is such an outstanding way. Our muscles and tendons hold withing them such power, pure and simple power. The body, no matter the age, size, disability, hold within it the power to adjust and do. That is amazing. That is a gift from our creator.
Yoga provides to us a tool....to tap into and see what our bodies and mind can do and potentially do if we allow ourselves permission.
Yoga gives us POWER.
We were created with such love. We are our own gift box. Such beauty and surprises lay waiting to be discovered and I am looking forward to the surprises that lay ahead.
...so, I shall add to my intentions and thank you prayer the acknowledgement of the power that lies within my mind, body, and spirit.
I wish you all great joy as you discover what gift boxes lay within you. My smile is wide as I type this...I am so excited for us all.
- I am many years into a "summer project" of yoga that my daughter and I started. Yoga is such a part of my life and my daughter's life that it surprises us both. Yoga for us has evolved as a part of daily living. We might not practice everyday, but we practice what yoga has given us. Now, some about me.I have had the honor of being a part of the medical community for many years. I strongly feel modern medicine and holistic medicine walk hand and hand to treat the whole person. I have found that yoga brings into daily life true balance,breath, and awareness to what is happening at the moment. Yoga is both enhancing and invigorating to the mind and spirit, and gives health and strength to the body. What more could one want? My daughter and I plan to be participating in yoga for many years to come, she even promised she would take me to class in my 80's. I intend to make her keep that promise.
