Move your mind, Move your body, Move your soul.
When you train to become a yoga teacher, there is much time and energy spent in creating a class - a format to allow for centering, warming, building, peaking, cooling, resting. "Arriving" on the mat takes a moment; we need a little space to transition from whatever we're holding onto from the day to a bit of conscious time on the mat.
Sometimes the hardest thing to do is shift gears. It's so interesting that we make space for it in yoga class, but rarely in other moments of our lives. Yet, we are transitioning all the time. Shifting gears is the stuff of life.
It is that noticing that helps to bring us into the moment. Had a shitty day at work? Take a shower when you walk through the door to wash the day off you. Better yet, do a chi cleaning session in the car before you even walk through the door!
You gotta feel it to heal it.
