I work today. It's the 4th week. Ick. Which means I'm up early. Earlier than a normal work day. You see, I'm at work at 5:30 instead of 7. AM. Yup. Not super looking forward to this working day. Especially because the weather is gonna be so freaking nice.
But yesterday was so beautiful too. The sun was shining. It was warm. it was cozy. I even sweated. A little bit.
And yoga was so nice. As usual. I finally felt like I knew what I was doing and what motion was coming next. Which allowed me to relax more and just enjoy the process and the movement and the connection. Did you know Yoga translates to “to unite” or “to yoke”? In class they talk about “oneness”. It's not a religion. It's the practice of being present. Being aware of your breath. Becoming one with your inner self. Connecting the mental and the physical. Less about survive and more about experience. Anyway, yesterday, since I felt more practiced, I was able to stretch more and be more focused on my breath and the movement of going from one pose to the next. Instead of being focused on the stance or getting there. It flowed more. I was more connected. More peace. More stillness. More awareness. A real connection. A oneness. And, as it turns out, it really is what I was looking for. A kind of self-discovery.
More on that later. Not that my life has tipsy-turvied. I'm just a bit more aware.
What I really wanted to say was, I took some pictures on the way to class. All of these are taken from the car, meaning I didn't get out of the driver's seat. Only rolled down the filthy glass that is my window. And I really enjoyed it. I'll be doing a bit more of it.
Obviously, they are not edited in any way. Nor are they technically correct. I've cleaned my lens while uploading.
Every one have a fantastic Sunday.
And if it's warm where you are, go out and sit in it. The sun warms the soul.
