July 2017 - Freedom
July brings us thoughts of freedom as we celebrate July 4th. We realize how lucky we are to have been born in or moved to a country that allows freedom in so many areas. Freedom of speech, religion, the press. The freedom to be who we are. Though freedom for some still needs to be peacefully advocated for, we live in a society that allows us to do that. Maintaining this freedom in our country is imperative.
It is also important for us to cultivate freedom in our lives. Yoga helps us find the space to be free. Through regular practice we build a steady base that allows us to fly. Yoga helps us stay in the present moment, not regretting the past nor worrying about the future. When we take our yoga off the mat, we realize the lessons of staying present, finding your edge, breathing through sensation pertain to our lives in every moment.
In yoga, the first thing we do in each asana is to find a strong, steady seat or base. This base allows us to move as freely as we can in the pose. The same is true in life, when doing anything if we set a steady, strong seat or base - we are able to fly more easily.
For me, I can find that freedom more easily when I am in nature; hiking, running, camping, and yoga. I feel more in touch with the universe when I am able to do anything of these things outdoors. Try it. Find an activity that you can do outside, notice your surroundings and be present in the moment. Share your experience with us by telling us about your experience on our facebook page.
Free yourself by trying something new. Join us for SUP Yoga.
