I had been worrying about a loved one for the last few years. They had
been mildly depressed for the last several years and had some
uncomfortable symptoms/conditions in their body as a result. I urged
them to seek help. My pleas were sometimes met with, “I’m fine. I’ll do
something when I’m ready.” At other times, they would glaze over and
numb out. And at other times, they would make promises that they haven’t
followed through with even still.
has always been a part of my life. From playing as a kid with others in
a pick up game of soccer, to group sports, then into marching band. In
college, I always took a dance or exercise class as an elective. When I
got out of college I remained active with weights, walking, &
aerobics. Then I found yoga. I admire the Ashtangis that are so
disciplined in there 2 hour a day practice. I have yearned to have the
discipline for that practice.
So in my own yoga practice it has been an organic experience.
FREEDOM is a big deal! Some choose death over losing their FREEDOM. In
our country, it is another thing that we easily take for granted. I’m
glad it is something we assume will continue. Our belief is strong that
it will and ‘So It Is’.
