Unable to attend a group yoga class tonight due to a little case of the flu I picked up at work, I decided to explore YouTube videos and settled on a “Yoga for Healing and Meditation 30 Day” option which provided me with a Vinyasa experience. The description of Vinyasa per Wikipedia is “Sequential movement that interlinks postures to form a continuous flow. It creates a movement meditation that reveals all forms as being impermanent and for this reason are not held on to”. Since I am in the process of letting go and creating space within, this Yoga option appealed to me. I was challenged by some movements, and actually a little relieved no one was watching! The instructor focused the participant’s attention on deep breathing to relieve anxiety, and I did experience my mood transitioning from anxious to calm. My favorite part of the session was the closing meditation (so relaxing!). I still have the flu, but feel better about it……
Warriors! You are the sky. Everything else is the weather….like the flu….
What’s the weather like in your “neck of the woods”? How do you “weather” life’s storms?
All is well. Peace, brothers and sisters. Kat
