I walked into day 46 of 90 straight days of hot yoga at Moksha Yoga LA after a long day of soccer meetings downtown. I decided to get a juice, at Clover Juice next door before my practice. My energy was low and so I got a drink called CLEAN GREEN, simply because it said “energize”. Wow it was a wonderful pick me up and my breath smelled fantastic. It also has Chlorophyll, Peppermint Oil, and H2O. Within a few minutes I was reignited to practice. I love juice where the ingredients are simple and that they use locally grown stuff. CLEAN GREEN is wonderful to take before any workout.
I entered the studio, for a yin practice. Our teacher Emily B is a wonderfully insightful, and a very intuitive teacher. I love her Yin class. We go, we let let go, and we go deep into the tissues. I was able to see in my practice today how quickly the mind wants to come in and create a story, and the story has nothing to do with what is actually happening. I was also able to see in the stillness how beautiful I am.
Now for me to say that has taken sometime. Do I realize in my life that some people might not see that in me? Yes. Do I also know there are people who see that same beauty in me? Yes. But I also realize that can change with people, what matters is that I see it, and feel it. Because as I discovered in my practice, the mind will trick you into listening to its stories and how subtle it can be as well. In today’s practice I felt very deep, still, and rested in each pose. I love that.
On to day 47….Namaste….
