I haven’t been quite feeling like myself lately, a feeling of being stuck and short bursts of energy and a lot of fatigue which is pretty unusual for me. Winter is when I usually feel alive. But I've realized how stuckness really brings me into the present moment more than anything, focusing on the future and planning and creating for once doesn’t feel good so all I can do is focus living moment to moment.
I’ve decided to make stuckness a part of my practice.
I have also come to realize every time I go through a phase I feel a lot better after teaching yoga, my mat feels like a home to me and it just feels good. Thank you all who continue to show up, to allow me to become a better teacher and a better student of this practice called life. I love you all ♡
