This morning I had a wonderful yoga practice under a tall pine tree in my front yard. There were some...challenges!! I was in forward fold when I heard my neighbor walking his 3 dogs (2 hotdogs and one small fuzzy) towards my house. As I sat up, the dogs saw me and began to bark like I was some strange thing! They were all stepping on each other and did not stop barking until they were down the road!. Later during Sun Salutation, I reached up in Reverse Swan Dive, now looking up into the pine tree, there was a large dead branch hanging in the tree over my head!! Lastly, some bugs were "helping" me with my yoga. (see also joys)
Joys: As I practiced, a nice breeze began. It felt so good. One bug decided to stay with me and walk up and around my arm. I spent quite a few minutes watching this bug. It was interesting and fun. I did not need music as the birds and bugs provided music. My neighbor Barbara brought me the paper and shared conversation. This joy was topped off with my husband returning from errands in town with a frozen lemonade from Dunkins!!!! It was an enjoyable practice and the start of a good day.
I enjoy yoga as it brings peace to my life. Teaching yoga has brought joy to my life and given me a chance to encourage others in learning yoga.
