Be proud of all your bumps and scars. They make you who you are, and they are often the things for which people love us the most. Ganesha is known as the Remover of Obstacles, but sometimes he puts just the right obstacles in our paths to help us grow. He also has the head of an elephant, so in this class we stay low and slow, working the joints of the lower body like a happy, heavy elephant. We hear the story of Ganesha's elephant head while we work with positive stress on our tissues in order to create strength. You will feel steady, solid, and present.
Oh Kelly your classes are such a gift 💝 I love the way you weave the mythology with poses that evoke the deity being discussed. Ganesha is one of my favorites - I have little statues of him everywhere (even in my car!) and he always brings a smile to my face and makes me feel safe. Thank you ❤️🙏🏻
Kelly this was perfect for me today. I needed something to quiet my mind and my body and these grounding postures and smooth transitions, with your storytelling and calming voice, were sent to me from beyond. Thank you for the invitation to imagine my bones! What a neat layer to sensation! I feel so settled and consisted Will be doing this one again! ❤️
I am thankful that others also felt cathartic on the mat. This dropped me deep into a state, and I had to linger in meditation for a few minutes to regain my bearings. I also dug the imagery of fascia and bones and breathing into the spaces in between, and of course, Ganesha's symbolism is in all of us too. So many of my scars (countless bike crashes) are a roadmap to my life. Thank you for allowing us to feel more deeply on the mat, to find our stress edges, and sink into them.
