I am enjoying my new role at our little shala as assistant to R&E. It's a role I take very seriously and am blessed to have such a fabulous teacher take me under her wing. The more I learn about our practice, the more I learn that I have so much more to learn! We are always first and foremost students in this practice. Sharing what we know however we can is just a small little step.
I have been obsessively watching Project Life YouTube videos over the past year. And while I enjoy sharing my pages on the blog, I've fallen way behind. So I decided to video my March pages instead. One day I may do a voice over but baby steps for now. :)
Practicing this ashtanga yoga is a funny thing. On the one hand, doing the same poses every day is a good measure of progress over time. On the other hand, those same poses that were once easy can be difficult and vice versa and that can do a number on your mind.
So, for me, part of the practice is letting go of what you can and can't do (not meaning that the physical effort to practice isn't put in) and taking each practice for what it is. Some days things come easier, some days not so much. And it's all good.
How well a person does a pose does not reflect how "good" a yogi she is. Being present in the moment, breathing, and letting go is what it is about.
Happy June! Summer is almost here and I am ready to milk it for all it's worth.
Our first trip this summer involves the wedding of 2 dear friends. Can't wait!
Helped celebrated the birthday of my baby sis.
We are attempting a vegan diet for the month of June. Already had one teeny slip up (a sauce I used to cook with had milk in it) but overall I like having the limitations. We don't eat terribly but are addicted to sweets so no cake or cookies!
Spent some days with little peeps.
It's been a busy week but we try to stop and enjoy the moments.
