Breathing in and exhaling in rhythmic movement allows the mind and body to slow down and feel tranquil. It has been over a year since I practiced yoga under the guidance of a certified instructor. This morning,, I indulged in the quiet of the yoga "studio" and the effect of the calming practice. After the hour spent, my spirit was energized.
dark clouds and light rain
bring a need to cocoon
winter holds on
winspring weather wiggles in
seasonal dispute ensues
Thank you, Two Writing Teachers for creating space so educator voices can soar.
Carol, I'm glad you got to go back to yoga. Your haiku made me stop and breathe peacefully.ReplyDelete
You made a good point, Denise. I am going to download my digital inspiration and leave it on my desk to remember the benefits of the breath.Delete
It's soooo nice to begin bringing back some previous practices. This sounds like it was lovely and very soul-calming.ReplyDelete
Soul-calming is a beautiful thought, Carol. Thanks for that. I am in the process of collecting image poems for my Winter's Embrace Gallery online. Do you have any that you would like to share in the gallery?Delete
Your peaceful post is most welcome. Made me think about doing yoga and its calming effect. I've only returned to yoga a few times over these two years. I really need to be in a real studio, and have trouble following through when its virtual. But perhaps today I will do some poses and practice intentional breathing. Namaste.ReplyDelete
I hope you enjoyed a brief yoga practice over the past couple of days, Heidi. See you at SOL22.Delete
Carol, it is great that you got back to doing something you love and find so beneficial. Finding that inner peace helps us cope with the world arounf iuus.ReplyDelete
Bob, you are so right. Today, I went early to exercise class and practiced some yoga moves. This is my last day of official exercising with instructors since my cataract surgery is on Tuesday.Delete
