Om, Sweet Om
Behold my Eat Pray Love moment, above and below:
I just got back from "Eat, Play, Yoga," a yoga retreat up in Sonoma (yes, I had it planned long before the toe - so I gently made do, yes, very gently...). It was led by my teacher Elizabeth, whose class I've been attending for almost 3 years now! Even though it was a short jaunt up north, I'm not quite back on earth yet and that's just fine. I'm still basking in a state of bliss, relaxation and laughter. A state I never plan to shake if possible. As Elizabeth offers at the end of each class, 'take a moment to notice how you're feeling and keep this stillness with you throughout your day.' At this moment, feelings that come to mind are peacefulness, compassion, quiet, and gratitude. I will keep this stillness with me.
