It has been way too long since I’ve created a piece for our website yoga blog! I can’t even think of a valid excuse to give for that, but it feels good to reach out to the First Street Yoga community today as we begin a new year together.
I am always amazed by the infinite number of ways that yoga offers us new beginnings. Every time we come to the mat is an opportunity to reset simply by breathing and turning our minds toward sensations of the moment. We can listen intently to the sounds around us – taking them in rather than pushing them away. We can turn to the sensation of touch from our clothes or the cool air on our skin and then take in the inner space of our bodies by noticing the sensations of our muscles and our bones. Starting from that place – a place that is uniquely new and of the present moment – we begin to move. It’s the beginning of an experience that transports us from the outer world to an inner world that nourishes us and gives us a glimpse of peace.
We hope that you’ll find time to join us for yoga soon. We have been part of the Mt Vernon / Lisbon community since 2017 and we are excited to begin another year with all of you. Wishing you a 2023 filled with joy, love, and peace. – Carol
