Yoga for the body and soul

The yoga class I went to today was absolutely perfect in every way. That doesn’t mean it was easy, but it was exactly what I needed.

I had a long day (dressed as a Viking) and received some sad family news over the weekend. I am tired, because it’s the end of the school year, and that’s not an easy time for a teacher.

I’m not complaining, these are just facts. Another fact is that I don’t remember what my life was like before yoga. How did I relax? How did I center myself? How did I quiet my mind?

I am so grateful for this practice that brings me what I need. Today, it was an hour of perfection. Not perfect poses, but a practice that was good for my soul, my heart, my brain, my body.

just breathe

And, because I can’t tease you by saying I dressed up as a Viking without giving you a picture, here it is. A Viking in a purple dress. And yes, I know they did not have horns on their helmets!

    I love your viking costume! I love that you had the perfect dress and just happened to have those horns as well.

      Thanks! That dress is so long, I never wear it, so I was happy to have a reason to put it on! And I bought those horns at Halloween, so I would be prepared to be a Viking! Now I have to find some place to store them….Viking horns take up a lot of space!

    oh no, hope the family news aren’t too bad. xo
    (and also, how crazy tall do you look in that outfit? I say it should be viking day more often. haha.)
