Last week I took a hiatus from a daily or bi-daily studio practice at my 4-5 regular communities as a way to self reflect and meditate/float/journal/teach.
In my 4 1/2 years of daily consistent asana and other limbed practices I can say I’m now at a point where the Asana does not ‘consume’ or ‘possess’ me.
It’s a tool of many in my shed and knowing when and how and why it’s serving a purpose is the pure ‘potency’ for self-liberation.
Being able to take a step back and decompress, to allow permission to walk for four hours through many diverse Vancouver neighborhoods and see the nature/animals/weather patterns/my dearest friends… –
and family/eat and drink delicious foods both home cooked or at restaurants/actually sleeping in and choosing what I need to feel fulfilled…
The Spring is a time for awakening and also to unfold from Hibernation- a recalibration of who/what/where you are and why/how/when you’re doing it.
I like to think of it as #DancingWithDharma and #TappingIntoTapas – the purpose and discipline and also #StudyingSvadhyaya (Self-Inquiry and investigation).
These are some themes and concepts for my classes coming in the next Month of May and I would love to welcome you to your practice of the above or anything resonant with your soul.
