Despite being mega tired these days I started yoga last night! It was a prenatal yoga class and I met some lovely mamas and two great instructors. I can’t wait to go back next Wednesday. Well, yes I can, I need awhile for my muscles to recover from all the squats we did!
Yoga is going to be my weekly mama activity and although it was hard, it was totally rewarding. I learned quite a few new poses, felt muscles I didn’t know I had, and confirmed my favorite part of yoga … the 5 minutes of rest and quiet at the end :)
One of my best friends has been taking yoga lately and her teacher read this poem during the ever-coveted quiet time at the end. I love peaceful things like this!
It only takes a reminder to breathe,
A moment to be still, and just like that,
Something in me settles, softens, makes
Space for imperfection. The harsh voice
Of judgment drops to a whisper and I
Remember again that life isn’t a relay
Race; that we will all cross the finish
Line; that waking up to life is what we
Were born for. As many times as I
Forget, catch myself charging forward
Without even knowing where I’m going,
That many times I can make the choice
To stop, to breathe, and be, and walk
Slowly into the mystery.
