Today I had the pleasure of joining @loyoga__
for a donation class @yoga213
with proceeds going to @ruokday
Lauren’s intention for the class was such a beautiful and important reminder so I thought I would share. Lauren encouraged us to use the practice of yoga to really check in with ourselves, to use movement and breath to explore how we’re feeling both mentally and physically, to use our time on the mat as a guide for when we need to give ourselves permission to take rest or when we should challenge ourselves to reach our full potential, to use this time to reconnect, to stop and reflect... am I ok?
When was the last time you stopped and checked in? Is it time again? There’s no rules, be your own judge, but remember to be kind to yourself as you would others. ✨
Lauren sealed our practice with the reminder that: You are safe. You are exactly where you need to be. And that hit me right in the feels.
Feeling safe in the midst of serious internal growth can be difficult, especially when change makes you super vulnerable and the anxiety really sets in! [Ya know, proper real feels]. But there was something about how Lauren supported and guided our practice today that reassured me and made me feel comfortable and safe... like a big warm hug. Thanks honey, you’re amaze x
