“I crave new, healthy experiences.”
Spring is here! We are working on slowly coming out of hibernation and getting back into the swing of our outdoor lives. Whether you are a hiker, camper, swimmer or even just playing pokemon go on a summer’s night type, we are beginning to see ourselves reconnecting with nature in ways we couldn’t this winter. We have evolved and see ourselves wanting to pursue new things, let this transitional time be your time to find new experiences and grow into new habits.
On your mat, I invite you to scan your body while practicing, do you notice a pose is “easy” and you could find some extra growth in going a little deeper? Do you find yourself doing the same postures and find room to try something that may have seemed scary before? Crave a new pose but find a healthy limit to challenging yourself.
Off your mat, I invite you to make a list of all the experiences you’ve wanted to try but haven’t taken the action to do quite yet. Find a realistic first step to achieving this experience and work toward one step at a time, a healthy step at a time. Don’t let the what if’s win, and never hold yourself back because of them.
-Namaste, Michi P.
