I Feel the Beat

Give…
For you have been given much. I have been granted a blessing to work in a yoga studio, and go to yoga everyday if I like. I have been blessed to attend a certification program starting in the spring. I have been given life through the breath that flows through my nostrils and fills my lungs wildly. When little is much, and my heart is filled I find myself permeating the natural energy and  love of God so much greater than myself. For it is not my job, your job to change hearts. It is our calling to walk with the Light of Christ. To speak of his goodness in this evil world. 

If you can give money give it, for it is not ours in the first place.
If you only have time share.
If you have words speak
If you have ears, listen.

I pray for love to radiate through me via yoga.
Yoga is vulnerability, and sweetly surrendering your thoughts to become present.

This weekend I had the great pleasure of going to a local show in my home town, It was a heavy rock show. I have not been to a concert in a great while, and i forgot what it felt like to feel the beat of a bass drum the pulse of the music as your body finds harmony with a rhythm and all you have to do is feel it. Let your body ride the wave. When I was at the show I thought of when I learned how to ease yourself into boat pose. The instructor challenged us to let our body ride the wave of the breath. How little work can you do to gain the most enjoyment? Don’t tense up so much, relax feel your body expand. Feel your hips rock along the floor boards. 

Feel the beat of today.
Namaste

Yogi finds runner

New Yogi Desk girl?

I practice yoga at a small local studio here in Michigan. I chose this studio because I was seeking a certification program to apply to. I fell in love with Seva Yoga after reading their mission statement and philosophy. The believe that yoga is for everyone, and not simply limited to those with a good chunk of change, or a type “A” body. With that said, in Feb. of 2013 I have been accepted into the training program and I am more than thrilled. 

I’ve spent years attempting to find my niche. I’ve learned that their are many things that I enjoy, but there is nothing like yoga that eats me up and sets fire with passion. I have been dropping in at classes in the studio, and considered footing the cost to get an unlimited monthly membership. However, today I received an email from the owner about a job opportunity at the studio. Holy crap! Is this true? Working a few hours a week in a haven? I never thought this would be me! I am blessed to have this presented to me so easily, and I am very greatful. I look forward to see what this opportunity brings. 

As for practicing today. I tried Yin yoga, a yoga that consists of deep stretching and long holds for extended periods of breath. It has taught me to hug myself and love on my own being. Allow myself to relax and work through rest.

Urdhva-Dandasana

Full back bend, wheel, also known as Urdhva-Dandasana has become a favorite. Urdhva-Dandasana fully unfolds the body in a way from all our daily slouching. It is also helpful with depression, as when in back bends you are required both physical strength and mental strength. Something about yoga that helps me learn that I can go places that I never thought I could go.

Today our practice was close knit and intimate. My fellow yogis were down to earth, and a joy to be with. The point of today was to embrace the journey. I forget that life is about the journey.. and I so often seek the destination. There is something about looking at the world upside down, and breathing through your hips, feeling the muscles expand and contract. I feel the intimacy of each fiber.

I sometimes wonder if others go this deep into their being.

Freaks and Geeks of Yoga

There are not many things that I can say consume me. However, the one thing that swallows me whole is yoga. Somedays I just stand on my mat and consider myself happy. Yoga has given me freedom. I nerd out on it and nose in books and the linguistics of yoga. This is a blog about a girl who loves yoga, and aspires to teach others about her love.
