Classes this afternoon were on the 3rd Niyama, Tapas which is commitment or the literal meaning, fire. You know when you strive and work and focus on something and there is a fire in the belly.
So that meant many of the asanas built heat, which was good because today's high was 30 degrees.
We talked about commitments, goals and what it takes to reach them. For my students this afternoon it is living a life without addiction. So when we did meditation I asked them to choose a mantra which would represent what they needed to reach their goal. Words such as courage, wisdom,
hope, love, strength and peace were chosen.
Classes were full and the energy was wonderful. It has been awhile since I have had a group so focused on recovery. They give me hope. I used a great deal of energy today. I am tired tonight, but it's a good tired.
Up at five am in the morning to teach some more. This time change is still giving me fits.
There is a pot of soup simmering on the stove, I am in my pjs and all is well here at the Watson house.
Goodnight Sweet dreams
