Today my house mates and me played Frisbee on the lake. I was in my gumboots, splashing around in the water on the ice. The sun was bright, it was intoxicating.  people and dogs were everywhere enjoying each others company.

Life is simple and beautifulDSC06409.

celebrating the elements: sun, snow, ice, water and little patches of the dark earth becoming visible.

March in Wisconsin is a treat for me, to hear the dripping sounds of water everywhere, to come out of my house in a sweater and to embrace movement and the gentle air.

In yoga there is an invitation to explore back bends, heart opening, nurturing poses for the lunges. And at the same time to find  grounding and stability in all this change!

Yoga is my journey in Life.

Practicing yoga is a gift, it is being entirely generous to me.

It has given me ground to stand on and to build on. I feel secure and held, where before I felt insecure and lonely. I belong to the earth now. I am her child.

I can breath with ease and this connects me to my world: my daughter, my work, nature, my community. Through my relationship with breath I receive new eyes that can see with love.

Steadiness in my thoughts and feelings help me to stay open and vulnerable. I am not afraid to get hurt because every single experience is my path, my opportunity to extend who I am.

My mat and my body. Thanks for the simplicity of Yoga, it is there for me, always, no fail.

In my seated practice I feel showered with energy and love.

I have such respect for all of us, yogi’s, coming together to practice. In silence, in willingness to be exposed, to let go and to accept the new, the shift andYoga2 the grace.

 

 

The Tree pose June 14, 2011

Tree pose is a wonderful pose, It cultivates

patience and confidence.

Both virtues I need to practice and I feel so blessed that this is so accessible in Yoga.

I need to balance a lot in my life and I often feel like I am working in a circus, juggling parenthood, work, studies, yoga practice, friendship, playing, shopping and cooking.

Yoga helps me to stay graceful in the process and not to freeze up. Tree pose is so calming and mind opening for me, I simply am present. On the picture I am practicing at the magnificent Wisconsin river.
