One of the most difficult things to do in life is to actually live it. Actually be apart of the moments that are unfolding in front of ourselves. To live it means we have to open. We have to be vulnerable. We have to take in everything, the good and the bad.
Once we open ourselves up, we then can connect. We have to root our feet down into the ground for strength and then we have to go for it knowing we might fail. We might not be able to stick half moon pose. We may not being able to do birds of paradise, but being vulnerable, by showing up and trying your best, you foster a closer connection to yourself and those around you. That’s what yoga teaches us.
Yoga allows ourselves to be vulnerable and to practice love and gratitude for ourselves so we can share it with others.
The quote shared in classes this week came from Brene Brown’s Tedex talk on vulnerability.
“Vulnerability, showing up and being seen. It is our most accurate form of courage. Be daring greatly.”
Sequences this week focused on side opening, balancing and binds.
