DJ got me singing a YOGA song, y’all!
After my recent breathing problems, I used my weekend to reconnect me to the breath.
I got down with my yoga self.
Let me tell you, feeling poorly definitely makes you appreciate how AWESOME you feel when you start to get well. I now SING THE BODY ELECTRIC in everything I do. Every running step. Every yoga pose. Every breath.
It’s powerful stuff, yo!
Later on Saturday I was lucky enough to sub a restorative yoga and meditation class, also at the Body Electric. A mixture of restorative poses (with props like bolsters, yippee!) and seated meditation made for a very relaxed midday and a better connection to the present moment. I absolutely LOVE teaching restorative postures and meditation. When you slow down and listen to the breath, amazing things happen. And my savasana chanting always seems calmer and more focused in these types of classes. I wish I could teach it all the time! Thanks for letting me be the substitute!!
