Emme’s gems #56

When my mat is no longer just the place where I practice physical movements, but a little island where I can find the ground beneath my feet and breathe deeply in the here and now when life’s winds try to knock me off balance —

That’s when I stop DOING and start BEING

Catch me, Restore me, Transform me

Not once, but so many times, has my training / yoga practice on my mat saved me…when we stay up all night to take care of our loved ones, when we are tired and exhausted emotionally and physically, when we have to dig deep to keep going because all we want is to curl up into a ball and not come out for a while…

That’s when most of us want to skip our training. We don’t feel like working out, have no energy to roll out our mats… 

That’s when most of us want to skip our training

That’s what I share with my students and clients: a practice, one that has been with me for more than two decades, is there to catch me, restore me, and transform me from being tired to knowing that I can do this. 

That’s the moment I recognize my practice is not just physical training, but an ally through the ups and downs of life to fall back on when I need it most…
