“Rather than wandering around in problem-solving mode all day, thinking mainly of what you want to fix about yourself or your life, you can pause for a few moments throughout the day to marvel at what’s not broken.”
― Kristin Neff
Or afternoon if you're on the other side of the world.
It's truly awe-inspiring to know that our world is really so small, and that there is a community of like minded individuals anywhere that you might want to step your feet.
I'm grateful for this each and every day.
The beauty of languages, of cultures, of weather and nature. The beauty that is being "different" or "exotic."
I truly believe that being "different" from what is expected is a wonderful thing.
What is considered standard or normal here in California is different than in Mexico which is different than in Scotland which is different than in Afghanistant which is different than in Thailand.
We all have an understanding of what is considered normal, or beautiful, or expected.
And it is so fun to step outside of that and love that which would be considered "different."
Kind of like this yoga class.
Or all of my yoga classes really.
They don't fit the mold.
And nor do I.
And maybe nor do you.
And that's ok. Exciting even!
That's what makes us unique.
You can't keep doing the same old thing that isn't working and expect the results to be different.
We have to embrace change. We have to embrace where we feel pain, where we need to back off, and where we need to charge forward.
This standing vinyasa flow is about embracing your limitations, and creatively overcoming them.
I hope it encourages you to embrace those limitations that you see in your life, and creatively overcome them.
Because limitation is subjective, is it not?
I'll see you on the mat!
