>on my mat: saluting the sun


One of my favorite things about planning a class is Sun Salutations; here is what I am loving right now:
– Beginning standing in Mountain at the front of your mat
– Inhale, sweeping the arms overhead, gazing at the thumbs
– Exhale, diving over the legs
– Inhale, Lengthening the spine
– Exhale, planting the hands and jumping to Down Dog
– Dropping both knees & inhaling to Cow
– Exhale, Lowering chest & chin
– Inhale, Baby Cobra
– Exhale, Child’s Pose to Downward Facing Dog
– Inhale to Plank
– Exhale Chaturanga or Knees-Chest-Chin
– Inhale to Upward Facing Dog or Cobra
– Exhale to Downward Facing Dog; Stay for 5 Breaths
– Exhale, deeply bending the knees & hopping or stepping forward
– Inhale, Lengthen the Spine
– Exhale, Fold
– Inhale, Reversing your swan dive and returning to Mountain
– Repeat x3

>a penny for your thoughts…

>My blog, that has been standing empty for weeks, finally has words!  I am thrilled about the idea of writing, connecting with you, whoever you are, and sharing this glorious journey with you.  I am struck by the beauty of simple things.  I stand completely in awe of this life.  I am committed to fully living every single second.  I am seduced by:

  • the way the sunlight dances on the creek
  • old barns
  • clothes lines and the smell of fresh laundry
  • the woods…everything about the woods
  • the velvety nose of a horse
  • creaky floors
  • the smell of wood
  • front porches
  • poetry and prose
  • the sticky hands of children
  • Golden Retrievers
  • berries
  • sunrises

What takes your breath away?!
