Off The Mat - Grace

For this, our final week of June and our final week with the theme of "transition" we moved with the intention of linking together yoga postures on our mat. This idea that as one posture ends the next begins without pause. Similar to how as one exhale ends the inhale follows immediately, and vice versa. This connectedness creates a smooth and flowing practice. It lends itself to a slower and more mindful flow. One that is in unison with the breath.

As you step off of the mat and begin to take this idea into daily life it can manifest in many ways. As you finish events, activities, interactions, and obligations, as one chapter closes, can you begin to feel the shift towards the next? Can you take what you just experienced and learned and move intuitively with that towards wherever you're going? Can you rely on your breath to help you navigate through those shifts and changes?

Can you allow this mindset help ease the speed and suddenness with which things feel like they change? So you feel more like you're on a bike ride along rolling hills than a roller coaster? Can you use these ideas to keep yourself focused on the present and looking towards the future rather than staring behind you?

Can you find grace?
