Yoga Can Happen Everywhere
One of the things I love most about yoga is that it is never contained.
Yoga can be done (and should be done!) everywhere, anywhere, and all those extra spaces in-between! Some of the most profound work I’ve done in my practice hasn’t taken place within a studio with a yoga mat under my feet. Rather, it has come in the quiet in-between moments. Those moments on airplanes, standing in line at the shop, talking with a friend, or making a connection with someone new.
The asanas are important and I am so glad we have spaces to support people moving and meditating on the mat. After all, that was my first introduction! But, at the end of the day, yoga is so much more.
This realization is something that grows larger for me each day as life unfurls in new and unexpected ways. Yoga allows me to breathe through the ever-constant change that each of us experience. Yoga allows me to feel empowered and strong. Yoga provides me with a path to better health and well-being on all levels – mental, physical, emotional, spiritual, and energetic.
The power of yoga rests in its history. In the incredible journey from beginning to now. In the ability to shift and respond to the changes that have occurred, are occurring, and will occur. Yoga, when we think about it, has been evolving from the first recordings of this practice. It has crossed borders and cultures and has evolved in ways no one could ever imagine.
Yoga simply IS. Yoga is in the moment, every moment. It is right where it should be for this place and time. For each of us who practice, this place and time will look and feel different depending on what changes and evolves in our own lives. Yoga, at its core, demands us to come face to face with these quiet in-between moments. Those moments where we don’t think yoga is happening, but, when we look around…we see it is happening everywhere.
