Fall Vinyasa Flow Retreat - Keeping your practice with you
Work was forgotten about. Families were left at home (although we love and missed you!) Routine weekend obligations were put on the shelf to find a little space for "me". Selfish? Read on.
During the "Finding your Voice" talk, people shared their experiences and stories of how they may have "radically expressed" themselves this year, or expressed themselves just a little more assertively than they may have in the past. One woman mentioned that she had always been a controlling mother and it was the first summer she had learned to let go, take time off, and felt good about just having "me" time. This trip was a reminder that it's okay to stop and find time to reset, rejuvenate and breathe.
Retreats like this come and go. But the healing that happened to our bodies....to our minds....even though we may not have realized we needed it - will last. Maybe it will last a week. Maybe it will last just a day. But I know I can go right to my mat tomorrow morning and do it all again. It's always there for us.
