The only reason we don’t open our hearts and minds to other people is that they trigger confusion in us that we don’t feel brave enough or sane enough to deal with. To the degree that we look clearly and compassionately at ourselves, we feel confident and fearless about looking into someone else’s eyes.
I am e-mailing out of gratitude and appreciation for the warmth and healing present in the studio and the teachers at Metrowest. Coming to classes at the studio has a certain rhythm and routine which is predictable, but the messages and the instruction is always unique. I am a psychologist and every day I try to heal people with talk therapy. But, yoga - when taught and practiced well - invites healing that is often inaccessible to the mind and our thoughts ... this is the type of yoga you offer at Metrowest. I leave practice knowing that whatever awaits outside the door, I have enjoyed some protected time in practice and in the presence of healing words and spirits.
