I often feel so inspired after teaching class, as I put mats away I blast one last song, usually, one that featured in the Kriya, the long-time sun song or Together we will rise by Effie Passero.
I drive home playing a song and my day starts.
I notice there’s a sense of calm to my day, the schedule (or lack of with a baby), the frustrations are still there, interactions are ever-present though I surprise myself.
I surprise myself with how I respond rather than react. Yogi Bhajan said Kundalini Yoga wouldn’t solve our problems, it would see us through them.
I draft a blog post on my phone that Iater finished.
I find I’m laughing at breakfast TV.
I take action on a goal in a twenty-minute baby free moment.
I don’t mind when plans change and enjoy a walk to the shops that are not in any way ‘scenic’.
I sing a mantra I used in class recently ‘Ek Ong Kar Sat Gurprasad’ to mean that everything is a gift from a higher source, EVERYTHING, and work on embodying it.
Instead of getting stressed and hung up on something I say to myself – I choose peace and I feel lighter for it.
I don’t feel these things come just from being a teacher, they come from being there in class. You may come for the stretches, or to move in a new way and that’s great!
Be open for inner change that leads to outer change, it may not be positive straight away as you work through blocks and issues. As a caterpillar, it’s worth the time, the effort to emerge as a butterfly.
Morning yoga classes set your day ahead in a new way, it ups the frequency from combined effort and energy of being with others with the similar interests and values.
You are a powerhouse and it’s only 7.30AM.
Classes have started for the year 2020, you can read about Tuesday morning class and new Thursday evening class in East London on my yoga classes page!
