Fall. Get Up. Love.

My body, my mind, my spirit all love yoga. There are times when I step on my mat and I could stay there all day and there are times when I don’t feel as connected. There are some days I just want the end result. I have to step back and remind myself that, like everything in life, this is a journey. An adventure. The process of getting to the end result is the stuff that helps us grow and makes us human and it is in these moments we learn about our true self and where we find the pure joy of being alive. If I fall out of tree pose one day I may actually be getting closer to a bigger tree the next day or maybe something else I hadn’t considered at all. Yes, this is an amazing practice on and off the mat. Perseverance, dedication, faith can go a long way. Some days our tree is steady and sometimes we stand in a windy forest. Sometimes it is fun to take my steady tree and see where I can go, can I look up, close my eyes, expand my heart. This is the journey, the play. It is fun to enjoy the big tree that takes risks, goes beyond our comfort level and if it falls we get to do it again. We will get there as we need, let’s enjoy this journey together. We are all heading in the same direction so look around you, encourage each other, close your eyes, fall, get up, open your heart, love.

“Just because I can’t do it today doesn’t mean I won’t be able to do it some day.” This is a quote by Arthur. If you haven’t already seen his video on You Tube you can find it on our Facebook. It is amazing, please watch! Facebook Page
