Creating Space on and off the mat.....



Creating Space in our lives is a simple concept - a concept that we all understand. Yet it’s a concept most of us find difficult to put into action. Through our yoga practice, we can re-discover it together... and although creating space isn’t easy, the rewards are worth our efforts.

In our yoga practice, we can look for space in our bodies, and explore its possibilities with an open curiosity and without expectations. We can see that creating space in our body by “undoing” the tension and stiffness, allows us to move deeper into a particular yoga posture. We can create space in our ligaments, joints, bones and muscles. And space means freedom...throught extension, expansion and through our movement...through our focus on the breath and meditation...

We can also create a space in our minds, and in our breath, allowing us the opportunity to discover what it’s like to live more freely and openly. More space in our thoughts, feelings...space for other people: for the differences, limitations, and dreams...

Contemplate what it would be like to create space in our lives – more space to explore ourselves, more space to play with our loves ones, more space to experience what we love. We become in a position to receive....


Blessings and Namaste,
Anna
