How we move through our daily lives MATTERS!
Traveling through India was an amplified opportunity to DROP IN, COME HOME, LET GO, and realize that I cannot hide from who I am.
I was with my yoga students from early morning until late in the evening. Lucky for me, our group had this dynamic contagious laughter simmering in and out of each stressful moment. We used it as a weapon to get through very long days of travel and overwhelm in different situations.
Having said that, there were times of exhaustion. I had one late night in Agra, at the very end of the trip where I started to tear up and just couldn’t get over the personal triggers that were showing up. I was so tired I had to let go and just go with it. It wouldn’t wait until I got back to my hotel room. One of my students witnessed me crying on the bus. It was very late, I was exhausted, and well...I am human.
My intent is to be fully myself so that I can realize my imperfectness and then trust that, through my awkward and vulnerable states, my connection with my experience will also support my connection with others.
I have also learned that putting up walls or fronts lead to a lot more pain in the future than just allowing the discomfort with the initial pain, fear, or insecurity.
By practicing yoga and mindfulness, I have safe routes to going inward. In order to teach and bring this into others lives I must live up to my own teachings, thus crying on the bus late at night in Agra when my triggers came up. Not easy, but I always say "there is no where to hide."
There is no where to hide, so letting go and learning as life arises has proven to be my best teacher.
Through our connection to our own bodies, there is wisdom, messages, wholeness, and radical moment-by-moment awakening.
