🍀Celebration of the Human Voice
🍀"...When it is genuine, when it is born of the need to speak, no one can stop the human voice. When denied a mouth, it speaks with the hands or the eyes, or the pores, or anything at all. Because every single one of us has something to say to the others, something that deserves to be celebrated or forgiven by others."
I was recently speaking passionately about why I love the practice of yoga so much. I had just gone rock climbing and was discussing how when you are up high on the rope the adrenaline rush and the mind's ability to focus and BE PRESENT. That, in turn, got me thinking about my yoga practice... the AMAZING teachers I have had the privilege to learn from, and what I love most about receiving knowledge and guidance from them. It is their ability through the practice in allowing me to gain access to MY PRESENCE. In its purest form. Having them do the thinking for me, guiding me, while being mindful in my own body and breath. Control without control. Nuts. Crazy. And AWESOME. Just moving and breathing in the moment. No room to think about anything else, just BEING. What a gift! I am so grateful every damn time! And THAT is why I love the practice. There are moments on my mat when the world just seems to disappear around me, and I am TRULY present. It really is such a beautiful thing. Want to experience the joy of letting go with me?
