Just after the sun sets and with ambient music playing, I start my practice alone in the room. Lights off, blinds and windows open I feel the night breeze on my face and imagine I’m on a beach or in the woods lost in the sound of serenity. Eyes closed I start to practice with no particular flow just moving with my body.
Yoga has played an important role in my life for about 10 years. I first embraced the practice right after my son was born in hopes of relieving the pain of multiple seizures. I had had seizures since adolescence but never to that crippling degree. I was physically and mentally exhausted and incapable of completing routine tasks. Simply taking deep intentional breaths and meticulously moving my body helped me slowly feel grounded again. Eventually, my muscles relaxed, I embraced the practice and I fell in love with the calming and healing power of yoga. Over the years, I’ve found ways to adjust my practice to suit my mood and the needs of my body. However, I think my initial introduction to the practice has influenced my preference towards slower and intentional sequences.
Movement, on the other hand has been an integral part of my journey through life since childhood. It has taken several forms ballet, modern dance and finally yoga. I have found that movement significantly impacts the mind for it serves as a calming force, ignition for creativity and a path to clarity. It’s a gateway into another part of your being which is often hidden and blocked by life’s constant distractions and noise. However, movement calls for focus and presence in your body.
I find that movement has beautiful healing power and I’m excited to embrace it with you!
