Be Open

Our experiences, thoughts, ideas tend to narrow as we get older…..Let me explain…..

Our thoughts:

  • you know, I can’t hang upside down, I get vertigo very easily.  (I healed my vertigo with aerial, and you can too)
  • that hot yoga is only for young people, I can’t stand to sweat.  (sweating is very good for the body, so is yoga, it’s a win-win!)
  • Last time I went running, I had knee pain for a week…..(a regular yoga practice HEALS & PREVENTS pain from coming in)
  • since COVID I’m scared to leave the house.  (we can’t hole up forever….we can and will stop this spread, by safe practices, it’s all starts with you)
  • I can’t possibly give a speech, I don’t like the way I sound  (yoga helps kill these thoughts that LIMIT us, and unites our body with our mind)
  • I can’t do all this technical stuff, it’s too complicated.  (I’m here to help you ……it’s wonderful to practice when, where you can with video on demand)

Someone asked me soon after becoming a yoga teacher why I practiced yoga.  Without thinking much, I answered to be free of death.  I have always been scared of my loved one’s dying.  Recently, I’ve changed my answer.  I practice yoga because I want to LIVE.  I want to ride that roll a coaster, and not worry about breaking something….I want to run, and not worry about what might happen afterwards.  In short, I want to LIVE.  I want to Love my family while they are still here.  I want nothing left on the table when my time comes.

We are here on this earth to LIVE, to LOVE, and to GIVE back all that we an.  I practice yoga so I can give back all that was given to me.

See you on the mat,

Paula
