Freedom

This past week the theme revolved around Freedom in honor of Memorial Day. There is so much there to explore, I chose to go with the idea of using our yoga to find more freedom in the body. That freedom always cost something, there is an exchange of energy that happens. Our dedicated armed forces pay for our freedom with their time away from loved ones and often their very lives.
We pay for freedom in our body by aligning correctly and moving in skillful ways. Good health and wellness in body doesn't just fall on us, it takes dedication to a practice of some sort, for me it is yoga for strength and flexibility with running/walking as supplement's.
Here is the quote I referenced for classes:
"Freedom is not given to us by anyone: we have to cultivate it ourselves. it is a daily practice...No one can prevent you from being aware of each step you take or each breath in and breath out" __Thich Nhat Hanh


With deep gratitude to all those who serve on our behalf. May we recognise the freedoms we have, even the ability/opportunity to come together and celebrate the freedom of movement in our body.

  2. It's my pleasure! I know that as much as we bloggers write for self-reflection, part of the blogging experience is also about the sangha/community it also generates :)
