I’ve been searching this afternoon for the wisdom of others to help me know what to put on this YogaBlog post. And, what I’ve concluded is that the most important thing that I can do right now, is to be as authentic a yoga teacher as I can possibly be. For me, this means sticking to my own yoga practice and teaching from those experiences. I know that we can shift the way we think and the way we feel through the ardent effort of our practice. But, I also know that this is not easy! Finding that thing that we describe as awareness and coaxing it toward the sensations of our own living being is not necessarily familiar. But it is something that we can learn. And, the results are far reaching – improved physical health, improved sense of well-being, and better sleep to name just a few.
While we are unable to practice yoga classes in lovely Studio A of First Street Community Center, we are still practicing together using Zoom video conferencing. Please check out the description of our online classes on the First Street Yoga website “Classes/Schedule” page and think about joining us! And, feel free to email* with any questions that you may have.
As we often do at the end of class, I’m closing this post with the Loving Kindness Meditation. Thinking of all of you. Namaste, Carol
May you be safe and protected from inner and outer harm,
May you be peaceful and happy,
May your body be strong and healthy, and heal itself over and over,
May you take care of yourself with ease and joy.
