This Thanksgiving week, my theme was Stillness and Silence. "In stillness, the world is restored". Tao Te Ching
With the holiday season upon us, we took some time to find some silence and stillness in our yoga practice.
As students went deep into their breath and their strength, they experienced silence on the second side of some poses. Standing and balancing poses worked well. I gave alignment cues on the first side of the pose, and then let students experience silence on the second side. It was a chance to notice differences from side to side and tune into their own internal cues in their body and breath.
Yoga can be hard, but sometimes we need to do something hard in order to feel more ease. May your efforts in your yoga practice carry you through your holidays with ease and Grace.
