Gosh, if you were in Sunday Service yesterday, you may still be feeling the buzz of starting something totally new. And the fun and the thrill of a different kind of experience. We had a wonderful class – it was fun, it was upbeat, and it was in a chair!
Want to see what all the buzz is about? Try it for yourself.
It’s funny – I used to think that in order for yoga to be “worth it” for me to practice, it had to be hard, or challenging, or make my body sore afterwards.
When I would start to feel a little anxious, or uptight, or like I just needed to move my body, I would rush to my favorite studio and take a class. Sometimes two. And I would keep showing up over and over again.
It was like I had something inside me that I just needed to shake out.
As if I needed that visceral feedback from my body.
As if the tenderness in my muscles was the value put forth from practice.
But as the years go on, my practice continues to evolve. What used to be necessary for me, and for my body, to be reminded of why I practice – that need is now gone.
Instead, I have a different calling to the mat.
The call comes from my head.
It starts like this: I feel scattered, or foggy, or maybe I feel like I’ve just had ENOUGH with the day.
And I wander onto my mat.
And everything quickly shifts.
And I feel more whole.
And I feel more like myself again.
Prana is seen as a universal energy which flows in currents in and around the body.
And when we are bringing energy up, and through the body, we call that Prana vayu. It is the upward moving current of energy and life force.
It is what is happening in and around our environment as we speak.
As spring delivers buds on trees, and crocuses peaking up from the earth, we see the upward moving life force of the earth in action.
We see the earth, the environment, and life – beginning again.
And in that spirit of beginning again, we are super excited to offer you a new experience on our schedule.
Starting this Wednesday, Heather is leading Virtual Adaptive Reset: an After-work wind down to help your body, mind, and being reset after a long work day.
Class is 30 minutes long. It is chair-based adaptive movement. And it is the service that your body, mind, and being require after a long day at the desktop.
