Thursday Yoga – Accept and Change

carlrogers

 

My home asana practice is a work in progress. And this is fine. I’m still a new practitioner, yet…I was giving myself a lot of shit about it. Lately, as I’ve been working on living in this moment. I realize that the more I let things be as they are, the more I can change them. Yesterday I watched Breath of the Gods- again. BotG is a documnetary about the modern history of yoga. I actually find it to be spotty and long winded but there are little aha moments I have whenever I watch it. Yesterday, I was struck to try a new kind of home practice. Usually I meditate first thing in the morning. But today I thought I’d sit for a minute, practice and then meditate. I’m going to do this home practice for a few weeks and see how I like it. It’s not fancy, but I guess neither am I- so…
