Morning inspiration from @flowingnomads ••• “The ‘practice’ of Yoga changes all the time. Mostly, we associate Yoga with the practice of poses (Asana) on the mat, but really, practicing Yoga is about a lot more than what we do with our physical bodies.
The opportunity to practice Yoga is available to us all the time. It’s important to see if we are indeed doing so and if so, how so?
This weekend I had the chance to practice ‘real’ yoga and I failed royally!
I lost my temper, not once, but twice and with that comes a big heavy weight of disappointment in myself. I wasn’t able to control or harness the anger that I could literally feel bubbling up inside of me.
How unsettling it all felt and it really doesn’t sit well with me. As the situation settles and I have time to reflect, I’m remorseful and know I could have done so much better in the moment. I certainly forgot about the most important tools at our disposal-breath. I have no doubt that If I stopped and focused on my breath, the situation could have been very different!
I certainly am not an angry person and so to feel this way makes me somewhat uncomfortable. I do not tend to hold things close and am not the biggest sharer of my feelings as I tend to work through them on my own. This brings me to think though-am I working through them, or simply pushing them into deep places within me and leaving them there, only to have them erupt from time to time when I’m being pushed...Perhaps?
I definitely failed in the moment but realize the practice of Yoga is ever present and in this case has provided me with the awareness to know that I can most definitely do better and so with this, comes an opportunity for growth and a sense of gratitude to those who push me to the point of explosion, release and realization.

I've always tried to be someone I'm not, fitting into places where I don't. Its hard breaking out of the habits that have bound me to my solitude, but I believe one day, I will find the one that sets me free...
"Today, a new leaf can fall, a new page can turn... everything has it's cycles and it's time to fulfil that yearn." What are you yearning for your body?
