Are you breathing?

I am so grateful I found Yoga. I am able to fall and have the strength and habit to get back up. Yoga doesn’t eliminate stress, but prepares the nervous system by Toning it so that the body and mind can handle it without being overwhelmed. 

We can learn to sit in life’s obstacles just as we sit in our challenging postures.  Learning contentment when challenged is the benefit of trying new poses, or the ones that intimidate us, or bring us to an edge of sorts.

Are you breathing?  This is just one moment, one breath.  And in a few breaths something has shifted, a new moment.  Just breathe through the next single moment.

We know it’s not all comfortable or easy, but those challenges on or off the mat create growth.
