Sitting Still in This Transitional Time

Back to school Monday. After cleaning the house a little manically, I sit still to take it all in. The quiet. The empty house. Allowing this transitional time to be slow, thoughtful, conscious. Saying farewell to the summertime life. Making room for the new schedules of my children and me.

It always feels like the new year, this time. I strongly feel the dance of old and new. I am in this odd place of reflecting back and peeking forward. Slightly caught in these forwards and backwards glances. So, I move slowly. I clean. I clear space physically for all of us. And then I sit down. I make space within me to take it all in. I allow the menagerie of what was, of what is coming. And then I try to find myself smack dab in the center of this current moment. This seat. This inhale. This exhale. I do my yoga. With a strong emphasis on the quieter kind, sitting still and breathing. And allowing myself to be here.

I recommend it.

Do #yoga. Today. Everyday.

Pause, peace and #practice,

I am happy.
I am safe.
I am healthy.
I am at ease.

Well, maybe not the last one in this crazy pose. But certainly afterwards. Especially after a great aligned vinyasa flow class led by Francesca Cervero at Willow Street Yoga Center with some delicious hip work, this flying pigeon Eka Pada Galavasana pose AND–yes, there’s more–a divine loving kindness meditation. The long breaths in supported bridge were pretty good too. I love yoga.

Happy weekend friends.

May you be happy.
May you be safe.
May you be healthy.
May you be at ease.

Do yoga. Today. Every day.

Peace and practice,
Yoga Nag
