This is My Yoga

Friday morning I attended a candlelight vinyasa class focused on gratitude and heart opening. I was on my last day of an 8 day trip to visit my oldest two who are away at college. The class was beautifully choreographed, the playlist featured several songs from Kanye's new album, the room was crowded (but in the best kind of way), people were quiet, the heat was set at 90' and it was just what I needed.

This is my yoga.

Inhale. Exhale.

This is my yoga.

On my mat I set my intention, I pause, I breathe, I relax, I find my edge, I push myself, I let go, I rest, find alignment, experience peace, and then I repeat it all again and again and again.

This is my yoga.

When we started making plans for this trip our INTENTION was for our little family to all be together. I was going to head down early with the three youngest and Dusty would catch a flight for a couple of days and join us on Thanksgiving. Our INTENTION was good but right away we ran into obstacles.

My son had his first game the week of Thanksgiving which meant he couldn't drive down with me. No problem, the girls and I found a cheap flight and the guys could travel together.

Then there was practices that couldn't be missed.

Change of plans, maybe the guys won't come.

I set a new intention, this would be about the girls and I spending time with the oldest two and the boys bonding over basketball and food. I made peace with the situation.

Dusty has been battling digestive issues and was finally able to get the gall bladder removal surgery scheduled, the day before Thanksgiving.
