the yoga love

on the mat is a state of mind

FAIL! (not really)

I went to yoga. I couldn’t help myself. It was just an hour, just a teensy hour of nice mellow lunchtime yoga… that doesn’t really count, right? I mean, I hardly broke a sweat! although, I did eat a really delicious tempeh reuben at the Remedy Diner after…mmmmmm. anyway. What could I have possibly gotten out of that?

Well, aside from a nice relaxing workout, I got….. A BUZZ!!! I totally did! And I didn’t even see it coming. I was all ‘ooh, interesting, this is just me being in my routine!’ ‘oohh where’s the lesson? where is it?’ ‘oooh now I don’t have to go running!’

And then, two minutes into Savasana, I could feel it. In my hands. It’s like I could feel my ‘pulse’,  a shift of energy out and then a shift back in. The energy in my hands was unmistakable, as though the universe was giving me what I needed to go out and do everything that I need to do. Buzz!

Lunch hour = quick fix. Win!

more downward dog, less downward spiral


Smile, be happy!

"Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it." — Elizabeth Gilbert
