When my life has been so brimming with good luck, good people and all of that, I sometimes felt at the brink of imminent change from this grace. There was a kind of fear behind my happiness because of course we all know, change is inevitable.
After suffering for three days with tragedy, struggling with confusion as to how I could ever get through it, I read this Krishnamurti post from a dear friend. Even though I teach yoga and have read his work and other yoga scholars words before, it took this great loss for me to really understand it. Wayne Dyer said something like this, “Happiness is not something that happens TO you, happiness is what YOU bring to life.”
Today, I will sing out with more happiness because I have had the courage to face the sting of deep sorrow.
Thanks to Sadie Nardini for inviting me to the Anatomy module of her CSV Teacher Training. I loved Leslie Kaminoff’s “Breath-Centered Yoga” approach. One of my favorite quotes of his was, “The maximum benefits of yoga practice are derived from the simplest things that are taught, not the most complex.” Indeed the axial movements he took us through were simple BUT powerful.
Here Leslie is explaining moving from the center axis to roll down into a forward fold and back up to a standing back bend.
