Hey Sarah: It's my birthday (my sister Deborah and you share the same birthday) and this was a super sweet flow. The ladybug dropped me like a Marcel Proust madeleine... I coached on some state champion girls tennis teams in NJ. In 2007 we won (assistant coach) on my birthday, and then in 2015 we won (head coach) on a day with a lot of lady bugs. I had such a warm rush of joy remembering that special team, and in particular, my senior on that team; she had the match of her life. Prior to this she was looking for signs we would win. A ladybug landed on her shoulder and then another on my own. We both believed. Today I sat down so gracefully and stood so forcefully as well. Hope this brings joy to this thread.
Today I am so grateful to finally have a moment to sink into this beautiful vinyasa flow. Life is so hectic these days, and even though I have so much to be thankful for, sometimes it’s easy to forget to appreciate all the blessings I have. That’s where the yoga comes in to bring that all home for me. By the time I finished this flow, I was in the zone and feeling open and thankful. You have a gift Sarah! ❤️🙏🏻🐞
Thank you so much for sharing, Jenny S. I am just on my way home from leading a retreat in the Galapagos. Talk about blessings. The trip really allowed me to slow down, be present, and appreciate the interconnectedness of all things. It's hard to put into words how beautiful it was to observe the nature and wildlife of the island. I am so glad this flow helped you to tap into gratitude and presence.
