The class is titled 'Slow flow' and it is just that, a slow gentle flow into the beginning of your week. The breeze was a sweet reminder that I was practicing outdoors yet the sturdiness of the deck allowed me to feel grounded and supported. The canvases above provided shade from the rising sun that was just starting its ascent for the day. We even had the resident lizard make a visit, with his purplish blue scales & his bold attitude.
I also appreciated how she planted seeds of 'taking a new perspective', 'what is your breath doing?' and other ideas to ponder. It gave me a chance to dive further inward instead of allowing my attention to drift outward to thoughts of the laundry list of 'to do's' in store for the day.
We stretched, expanded our breath and opened our hearts. We even had a brief threat of rain that was smoothly handled by placing our worldly possessions within the confines of the studio and seamlessly returning to the deck at the chance of possibly practicing with a spritz from the sky. The rain held off and we ended our practice in a delicious savasana. DELICIOUS! The birds sang us a lullaby as we melted into the earth and allowed the fruits of our practice to permeate our cells, bathing us in that universal vibration.
