This past weekend in our Monthly Motivation Meetup, one of our members, Sandrine, spoke about how she takes time when she gets home instead of rushing to the next thing. She makes a ritual of it. She takes off her hat and and her coat and she sits down for a moment or two. She allows herself the time to transition from her work life to her home life with a moment of pause.

This is direct opposition of an awareness that grew out of her rushing from one event to another. She would come home from work, rush as quickly as possible to walk the dogs, so she could have dinner and hurry up and relax.

How many times do we do this in our lives.

Rush from one event to another, rarely even noticing what is happening?

We do this in our yoga class as well. We may pay attention in one yoga pose but then check out between the yoga poses. In this class we are going to pay attention to the spaces between the yoga poses. This was one of my students’ favourite yoga classes back in the day of studio classes. I hope you enjoy it too 🙂

Namaste, Melissa
