I hope you have had a good start to 2020.
I’ll be honest for me January felt like a difficult month with a number of conflating issues pressing on my time. I know, not meant to say that are we? The stock answer to “How are you?” seems to be one of “Fine” or “Busy” without really scratching the surface – perish the thought we should be honest and say actually “I’m not fine” or “Busy, but not coping”.
January’s busyness has led me to think a lot about the rhythms of life – lifes ebbs and flows – times when life is more Yang – outward and busy – versus Yin – more stable and inward. If we try and work against that natural rhythm then the result is friction. Sometimes it seems we have to go with the flow, accepting this wasn’t quite where we wanted to be right now, how we wanted to feel, but its where we are and what matters is the next breath, the next step, the next thought, each creating a blank canvas.
Its at times like this that we can gain some continuity and stability from our yoga practice, be it a daily time in our own space, or carving out time to brave the dark and cold winter months for a studio class with its sense of Sangha.
However 2020 has unfolded – is unfolding – for you, I wish you peace, clarity and insight, and hope that yoga can support that journey.
I hope to see you on a yoga mat during February.
