I am not one to ignore messages from the Universe; and this week the message was loud and clear: BREATH. I was teaching a twists-focus class this week; as I taught, I swear, I saw my students twisting and the image of a twirling cloud came to my mind. Next thing I know I am at the wonderful Dana Covello's class and she'd decided to sweep us into a Pranayama journey for 90 minutes that culminated into the sweetest understanding of Hanumanasana (disclaimer, even though my internal body fully manifested this pose, I wasn't anywhere close to the full pose-smile). So when I came across a podcast from Elsie's Yoga Class: Live and Unplugged Episode 93 focus on breathing (you must subscribe to her awesome free podcast), I decided to surrender to the powerful force of just listening to my breath. A clear message has emerged from this week's breathing exercises: I am the fruit of my breath.
Remember this as you move into your everyday. Please take a moment to observe your breath today and always.
Now, Universe, if you can just tell me what numbers to purchase in the lottery!!!
