On January 1, 2016, I wrote a post about beginning again, specifically about starting the new year with purpose and intention. I chose the word “self-directed” as my Word of the Year. And I began a new yoga flow with the big idea of sharing it with the world.
Today – August 26, 2018 – I find myself needing to begin again. Again.
I am 6 weeks and 3 days post-surgery, and I am pseudo-released from my restrictions. I am missing my yoga practice. I am stiff and tight in all the wrong places. I am ready to hit my mat.
I am ready to begin again. Again.
I love my Begin Again playlist and flow from way back in 2016, so I figure it’s as good a place as any to get started.
The first posture is Easy Pose (Sukhasana)…one of my favorite ways to begin a yoga workout.
Sit in an easy position.
You might like your legs criss-cross, or you might prefer them out straight.
You should try sitting on a pillow or folded blanket if the ground is not comfortable.
You can shift your bum cheeks to root through your sits bones.
And then lift through your spine, your ribs, your heart, and your shoulders until you feel a nice, long length from crown to ground.
From here, just breathe.
And now you have mastered Sukhasana.
It’s a pretty great way to begin again. Again.
With love and hugs,
