Moving Slowly

Sometimes the practice is about savoring the journey.

The point is not to strike a perfect pose or to cure your mind of wandering.

The process itself is the true experience.

What does my breath sound like?

How does it feel to raise my arms gracefully above my head? To stretch my fingertips wider on the mat?

What can I let go of in this moment?

In class today, try moving slowly, more slowly than you normally do. Savor the way your body feels as it moves toward a pose, or as you transition out of it. 

Is there anything you are avoiding by rushing?

Experience the yoga in a new way, one where you are at peace with the process.
