A classroom full of new faces today.  Several struggled with the breath work and relaxation.  Savasana or relaxation can be the most difficult part of a yoga class for many.  We westerners are not wired for stillness and breath work.  Well we are, our bodies and our spirits crave it, but our lifestyles have falsely convinced us that we don't need it.  The need to be busy, to always be doing something cheats us from real rest and relaxation.

The new students will eventually get it or they won't.  Some are ready for the change in lifestyle, the journey to go inward, others will never be.

I am so ready for my cup of hot tea and my moments of stillness before bed tonight.  Another busy day tomorrow, seeing the meinere's doctor and then work the afternoon.  Keep spreading that kindness,  it makes a difference.


  1. I'm one of those who feel I have to be busy all the time and to care for everyone. I coild use a good R&R.
    Hugs, Julia

  2. Ooops, it should read "could" and not coild...

  3. Indeed, westerners always seek work, even during retirement and with a pension aside. That's almost tragic, as retirement time is our last chance to have a dialogue with our body and soul.
