There's a saying that yoga can shine the light of awareness into the darkest corners of the body. It can help us open up, release and let go of all the darkness and heaviness we've gathered through our individual life journey. It can take time and practice to get to all that but from our very first practice, yoga can make us more aware... Yes in as little as 3 minutes of conscious breathing yoga can make us aware of the present moment: What's up in that busy mind of ours? What's our physical condition as we sit? What feeling can best describe us today?
And we observe. We check in. We feel. We don't judge, analyze or engage in whatever we find within.
That's us shining the light of awareness.
We open our eyes and realize that we are already on the mat or the towel or the blanket. We are already doing yoga. Next it's time to stretch, open, twist, bend, fold.. It's time to start feeling how good our physical body is designed to feel.
