Life is Precious

Sadly one of the students who has attended my Yoga classes for the Cancer journey lost her battle. It’s so saddening. This woman gave it a good fight and her gentle energies will definitely be missed by myself and the other participants.

Another reminder of just how precious life is.

This week I saw a short clip on Tao


One of those days

Have you ever had one of those days where everything feels like it’s going wrong? I had one of those on Monday.. well, the morning anyhow. My bedside alarm wasn’t set for daylight saving time which meant I woke up one hour late. And I received a text message which I thought was real, but turned out was a dream. I spent that extra hour of sleep trying to figure out how to respond without rudeness or ego.

Yoga Real Estate

I had a teacher once that moved his yoga mat to a different location for every class. It always kept the students on their toes and made them explore their attachments to their yoga space.

I find it interesting how much we are creatures of habit. How we move into our classes and place our mats in the exact same spot each week. And the looks on students faces when someone is in ‘their spot’ as if it’s going to change their experience. I have even experienced some students tell others, “You can’t go there that’s so-and-so’s place”.

Embracing this moment

Sadly we had a death in the family this week. It was my Grandmother’s brother. The loss of my Great Uncle means there is no longer anyone living from that generation. All of my Great Aunt’s & Uncles on both sides of the family are gone. That is so hard to get my mind around. (Or maybe it’s the fact I’m growing closer to 50 that is hitting me harder.)
