When I look at my yoga mat, I see a magic carpet . For 90 minutes I can fly, fall, twist and turn. There are certain postures where I feel like I’m swimming in the Pacific or floating in space among the expanding stars. It’s wild!
The first time I stepped into a hot room to practice 26&2, I had no idea it would guide me a lot like the GPS on my phone… turn left, hinge forward, pick up your foot etc. Those yogic directions have led me to the greatest moments of my life and helped me negotiate the most tragic ones.
If you’re reading this, you probably know what I’m talking about, if you don't — Yoga, for me, is a tool. Almost a secret weapon we can activate when we tap into our breath and figure out how to let go and just surrender. No matter what.
Teacher Training at Hot 8 yoga has given me a voice in my yoga practice and added a new dimension to how I see myself, how I forgive myself, and how I love myself.
Self love is a practice that we can often pass by because we have a destination. Through a consistent 26&2 practice, I have finally begun to understand it IS the destination.
