This is one of those weeks where I feel luckier than ever to be living this amazing life. I look back at the old me and I see all the walls that I’d put up, all the barriers to happiness. I’m profoundly grateful to have discovered yoga and for the practices and teachings that have been so generously shared with me. I’m so grateful for the changes that these teachings have brought about in my life.
We all have our challenges, we all have our tough times but today, more than usual, I’m focussing on joy and gratitude.
I’m grateful for my family and my friends. I’m grateful for my good health and my relative safety and comfort. (Something we should never take for granted.) I’m grateful for my body, whatever ‘limitations’ or creaks it might have. I’m grateful for my life purpose and for the honour of playing a part in bringing yoga into more lives.
On any given day there are so many reasons to be grateful. We often get caught up in the ‘need to acquire’ and start to feel that we’re missing out on something. But on a day like today, a beautiful inspiring day like today, we can let gratitude flow out from our hearts into our bodies and minds.
We can breathe in wonder at the gifts and graces of life and breathe out gratitude and joy.
Special gratitude today to Drew and our first ever Savasanahhh graduates from this weekend. I’m humbled by your gifts and your beautiful intentions and I’m grateful that we were able to play host to your amazing energy. How wonderful that these teachings will now flow out into the world and bring release and relaxation to more people!
This weekend, I’m grateful to be able share my plans for our teacher training program with all those who are interested. My own training was a catalyst for positive change in my life and the opportunity to teach yoga is a privilege and a blessing every day. I’m profoundly grateful for the opportunity to share this amazing path with others. If you’re interested in hearing about our program, I’ll see you at 11 am on Saturday (14th).
Join me on your mat this week to connect to gratitude. Even if you’re facing challenges finding this attitude can change your whole week.
