Becoming “awake” involves seeing our confusion more clearly.
I enjoyed the class today- as I mentioned to you briefly after class the yoga has been a true delightful addition to my life. I am 54 years old and have five children (ages 26 to 15). They have a host of medical and mental health issues so everyday is a challenge for sure. I exercise everyday and that has been my way to balance my own mental health. I added the yoga just a couple of months ago and it has added another dimension to my life. Initially I was not so great with the "breathing" and figured if I kept my body coming, my mind and breathing would follow! Honestly, I think that both my mind and breathing are no longer following, but actually catching up! I am now beginning to understand the true meaning of the yoga practice. Your studio has wonderful instructors who are wonderful at guiding me (and others) through each practice. It seems to be that they know when my mind starts wandering and gently guide me back to the practice!
