Declare Your Freedom

I had the opportunity to teach a yoga class at this year’s Annual Mensa Gathering in Pittsburgh! It was quite an exciting experience. It’s always such a treat to teach outside of the yoga studio, and it’s also very exciting not knowing who is going to be showing up ๐Ÿ™‚ I was thrilled to see a pretty good outcome of between 20-25 people. The majority of them did not have yoga mats and quite a few of them weren’t wearing what we would call ‘yoga clothing’.

You see, none of this matters. The practice can be done anywhere, no props nor specific attire needed!

How Do Your Choices Reflect Optimal Freedom?

This yoga class is what I would call a beginners class. Although one does not need to be a beginner to practice it. We as practitioners can bring complexity to any class as we choose to step deeper into it’s nuances and continue to make more meaning with every breath and every movement. Something simple can be ever so fulfilling and can become a gift to all of us who choose to pull the meaning of our hearts into it ๐Ÿ˜€ Let me know your thoughts! Enjoy the practice!

About this yoga podcast episode:

This is a total beginner yoga class, a fantastic class to start with, plus it’s only an hour ๐Ÿ˜‰ Let me know what you think!

I also suggest very strongly to put a blanket or a towel or something folded and supportive beneath your bum, especially if you have a tight lower back, hips and hamstrings. Do as I say, not what you see in the pics ๐Ÿ˜‰ (took the pics at work and there are no blankets or towels there…just dirty carpet!)
