precious thing. Unfortunately, many of us are unable to hang onto that beautiful feeling; the alarm goes off, the phone rings or the kids scream, and we get jolted out of our bliss and immediately back into our shoulders up around the ears, butt clenching busy lives.
When I teach my yoga workshop “Discover your Flow,” it's sequenced
with the idea of aligning our bodies with how I view the vinyasa practice: free, floating, moving and expressive. This style of class focuses on easy ways to make our physical flow less strenuous and more efficient (so we can save energy for arm balances and inversions!). However, this class is also about finding that place within ourselves where we can release the hold of “perfection” and relinquish the box that we fit ourselves into – on and off the mat.
The challenge is to find a way to let go of our desperate grip on the river bank of life, so we can be carried downstream to exactly where we need to be. Sometimes we’ll hit rocky waters and other times it’s smooth sailing. When we find our “flow” we are able to rest in each moment, knowing that we’ll be looked after. Are we ready to trust the process of what the Universe has in store for our lives?
Being in the flow is truly where the excitement of life is; resting in each moment and releasing control. Let's let go and start living!
