I haven’t been to yoga in over a week, and I feel it. Sometimes life is like that. It just gets in the way. We have commitments. We have responsibilities. We have limits to what can be accomplished. I used to be able to just get up earlier, stay up later, and sleep a little less. That strategy doesn’t work for me anymore. When I finally got home tonight, I took a moment to do a couple of poses. Just the act of posing, stretching, pausing, brought relief.
No matter what, I will be in class tomorrow. I need to think about my quality of life. I have made a commitment to my practice. I have a responsibility to myself. I’m exhausted, so it will be harder to get there. Since I’ve missed a few classes, it probably won’t feel great. I will be there though.
