Get on the mat.
The yoga mat is the place we learn—
to surrender, to pause, to stretch, to relax, and to grow.
We come to the mat — ready — eager to remember, how to breathe deeply again.
To remember how to slow down.
And. . . . . . b r e a t h e. . . . . . . . . .
We create space in our day to just be. To listen to what speaks within. We silence the to do list, and the busy, hurry. and worry of our day.
We close our eyes and listen to our breath. We marvel at the beauty of the human body and all of the gifts that it generously gives us. The strength we have that holds us in authenticity with our core.
Our hopes and dreams and values ground us like our feet planted firmly into that mat. Holding us steady in this world which tries to keep rushing us around.
But, the secret to peace in the frantic pace of our culture is found in letting go.
We come to the mat to let things go.
We let go of the worry.
We let go of the hurry.
We let go of the busy.
We let go of the coulda.
We let go of the shoulda.
We let go of the woulda.
We just sit. In stillness with our breathe. And we just are.
