Whether you are new to yoga or have been practicing for many years, we all have a “moment.” A moment where something shifted and our practice allowed us to see ourselves and the world around us in a different way. A moment where we fell out of a pose and laughed and it was everything. A moment that showed us we’re stronger than we realized. A moment where we finally kicked up into headstand on our own and couldn’t believe it. A moment where we could finally let it all go and just be.
That “moment” is different for everyone and this summer we want to celebrate YOUR yoga moments. We also want to acknowledge the many yoga studios all over the world that make so many incredible yoga moments possible. Want to share your yoga moment with us? Here’s how.
This week’s Yoga Moment comes from Heather during her practice.
“As a beginner, every arm balance looks positively hopeless. The first attempt at Crow had me face planting more times than I care to discuss. Eventually, you find your way, and you pop up so easy that the fear of ever attempting seems foolish. But, the glorious moment happened some years into my practice. I was introduced to Angel, and though it came rather effortless for me, the beauty of the pose, the way my arms were holding me in this “fallen” state brought the most wonderful circle of emotions around my heart. It was this moment of raw truth as in the presence of God we are all fallen, but he enables us to hold.”
