Last week I spent every morning from 6am to 7.30am at a yoga and meditation Spring Intensive, it was the first time I had ever done yoga on a daily basis and I was really surprised by the change in my body by about Thursday. It wasn't a physically obvious change; I hadn't suddenly turned into some yogi who was streamlined, super flexible and supremely calm, oh no, nothing like that but I felt stronger and more focused within myself. As someone mentioned by day four it felt like we were all doing a kind of dance together, we all moved with a grace, a certainty and ease, it all kind of clicked in a way that is very different when you go just once or even twice a week.
Yoga always offers me a glimpse at centeredness, physically, mentally and emotionally, at least for a few hours but last week it offered me more and gave me, hmm, not sure whether this is the right word but maybe courage within my body and and an openness within my self.
A Spring clean indeed.
