“The light in me honors the light in you…when I am in that place of light in me and you’re in that place of light in you…we become one, Namaste.” That quote/statement/phrase is how I end each of my yoga classes. I don’t know why I picked this certain phrase, but I quite enjoy it. I hope it helps connect my students together or at least connects them to their inner being, their soul. The idea of reconnecting with yourself, is an interesting action. Some people just go all day long. They never stop for a moment. They never relax or take a second for themselves. I really just described my mother. Now, my mother is a wonderful woman. She is a great mother, an amazing teacher, and again she is overall a wonderful human being. But, she never stops going. She runs around all day long and is so stressed out and tense. Just recently she is allowing herself to sit down and she started coming to a few of my yoga classes. I hate to say this, but……my mom is the stiffest/tense/stressed out person in the group of yogis I teach. I usually use her to give different cues to my classes. But, she can never relax fully in class. So I will pose the question. If you can’t relax in class…how can you reconnect with yourself? But, than the next question has to be posed….How can you relax in a yoga class? Even though this question seems silly…it’s a quite real and plausible question. Some classes i just can’t relax, I have to many things going on. Or some classes I fall asleep due to being so relax. But, I can never find the balance between not relaxing and almost sleeping relaxing. But, this may have to deal with my narcolepsy? Or maybe it’s just me? But, this week lets focus on relaxing. I will be exploring and experimenting with different techniques and in a few weeks I’ll let you know how it goes. But until than…stay golden Yogis and remember to exhale your hands to heart center.
See you on your mat!!!
