Today I attended the third morning of a Yoga Intensive. I began last year in the same fashion and it provided focus and a great start to the year.
This year’s theme is ‘alignment’. Each day starts in silence. We prepare our mats and equipment, then lay back in shavasana (resting pose). Then we meditate. An opportunity to still the mind and to be still with ourselves. Each day has been different and I’m not sure whether there’s been an accumulative effect but at the end of today’s meditation practice I felt completely still, peaceful and silent which sent ripples of blissful energy throughout my physical body. The simple joy of living was present and what a gift it is!
