the prompt for this week was a choice of prompts re-visited from past weeks. i chose week 1…nourish.
most mornings find me sitting on these blankets, eyes closed, breathing deeply. after a short pranayama practice, i move through a few yoga poses. gently…because i’m generally still sleepy. there are mornings when i do not want to get out of bed at this early hour, but mostly i do. because after 1 1/2 years of this practice, i know the benefits. this yoga practice…this consistent practice…nourishes me. yoga nourishes my body. yoga nourishes my soul. i am so clear on how this time spent breathing and moving mindfully carries into my daily living. as i navigate my life and organize and prioritize, i know that this morning time is non-negotiable. i must keep this time in my life; i need it. and, ultimately, those around me need it too. because it colors my being and the ways i interact with everyone and everything around me. the effects are both subtle and powerful.
this time sitting on these blankets, moving on my mat…nourish me.
what nourishes you???
sending a little love your way, m
