Balancing


"Mindfulness is a way of being fully present, to be genuinely who you are, a way to look deeply into the nature of things, a way to discover the peace you already possess. It is an attitude of openness."-- E Lesser

Where the eyes go, the body will follow, is the cue I use when teaching balancing postures. Allow your eyes to be so intently focused on one point that your mind can will your body to remain steady and sure-footed. I think most of the time I fall because I have allowed the obstacles of insecurity or fear tell me that I should come down. When, in reality, I could have remained... undeterred. Still. To abide in the present moment is the challenge. So often, when I get ahead of myself, I can talk myself out of anything.

Staying focused and getting stronger, moment by moment. Fully enjoying this gorgeous spring.
