Yesterday’s practice was amazing – super deep hip openers, super big backbends, and a lot of reflection intertwined. I felt the effects of it all day and evening – through power struggles. The hips are where we hold on to our issues with control, vengeance, and anything that deals with one-on-one relationships. All of that came out yesterday, and it was an emotionally charged day. But I’m relieved those emotions surfaced, and I’m praying it was a means of release, of finally letting go of feelings that are destructive. This, I believe, leads to the path of forgiveness.
Mantra meditation at the beginning of practice. Gentle, loving, nurturing asanas, and a LONG time in Shoulderstand.
Affirmation for meditation: I am emotionally well balanced. Something tells me I’ll be repeating this to myself all day.
