Each moment passes, everything moves on, challenges build and recede, offering us ongoing opportunities to discover and appreciate the very preciousness of life. Let us take this time to appreciate what we can. Let us not just focus on what is not there, what we don’t have, or what is seemingly taken away. Let us focus instead on what we do have; our blessings; what we enjoy.
Locate something that you can appreciate. Appreciation leads to joy and joy up-regulates your immune response, strengthening your aura and your energy. It can be as simple as appreciating the breath or the sky, flowers in your garden or the fresh air. Spend a few minutes a day focusing on that which brings you joy, the simplest and most innocent pleasures. There is still a lot which is here, available, free. It is all around you, and goes beyond all our tales of what is not there and what’s missing. Let’s collective unite, and be, as this challenge that is facing us, (individually and globally) expands and dissolves. Then, what will arise from it is growth, a greater love; greater compassion and greater joy.
Do you have to wear lycra to do yoga?
No you don’t. But as your body is moving through the various planes of motion, it’s easy to get lost in your clothes! So wear comfortable, form-fitting kit that doesn’t interrupt your yoga flow.
How can I do yoga if I’m not flexible?
Well, that’s the reason to do yoga, not to not do yoga! It doesn’t matter if you can’t touch your toes. Flexibility is not a prerequisite to do yoga. But the willingness to try something new is.
