Can you believe it? We’re nearly 1/12 the way through our #365yoga journey! How are you doing?
Personally, I’m a little fuddled. I’ve been doing yoga for years. I thought I was living my yoga pretty accurately and consistently. I practice asana regularly, I teach yoga regularly, I write about yoga regularly, I talk yoga constantly. I threw my mat into the ring for this journey of following Judith Hanson Lasater’s A Year of Living Your Yoga eagerly, but I didn’t think it would change my life at all. I was wildly wrong.
So far, my experience has been incredibly eye opening. I’m learning that I’ve been hiding from some truths for years. By following the suggestions in AYOLYY, I am starting to come out from behind the bushes and face things. Sounds horrible, eh? It’s really not. It’s gentle, loving, peaceful, and safe. I’m discovering some really cool things about myself that I never knew, I’m remembering things about myself that I had forgotten, and I’m kicking to the curb some things I used to believe but no longer apply.
Mostly, though, I’m having a heck of fun! I’m interacting with amazing yogis and yoginis around the world on Twitter (use hashtag #365yoga,) and on Facebook, and in blogs. You all are some really incredible, funny, insightful, irreverent (my personal favorite) people! It feels so lovely to be a part of a family of sorts, to be on a journey with so many fab folks. I am gaining inspiration from you all and am so pleased to have been able to inspire some of you.
And here’s where we all gather around the campfire and sing Kumbaya. Yeah. Okay. Just kidding.
Almost 1 full month in and already I’m changing. I bet I’m not the only one.
