I AM YOGA even when...

I.AM.YOGA even when…

I scream at my kids in a fit of rage.

I can’t muster a single nice thing to say to my husband.

I say mean things about people.

I feel threated and scared.

Someone else gets the gig.

I speak WAY before I think.

I make terrible financial decisions.

I’m jealous.

I don’t know how.

I think I’ve got it all figured out.

I’m afraid it won’t work out.

I AM YOGA because through my practice on the mat I have connected with and recognized a pulse, a power, a spirit inside me that is indestructible and ever present. I AM YOGA because I need to continually be reminded to return. Whether it is on the mat or in a split moment of reflection or realization in the day, I can tell the difference between living from that inner pulse and not. I AM YOGA because I know that life is often just a sequence of events that lead to a few short moments of feeling totally full and alive…and then the cycle starts again.
