So, I’m hanging out on the cruise liner, reviewing some of the more expansive moments of the day, and I’m really struck by how wonderful it was to say the above mentioned affirmation to a really good friend: Shot out of my heart, hopefully with a direct hit to hers.

It’s great to be in touch with how I really feel, in any given moment, and to express that positive vibe out loud. TO NOT BE AFRAID TO LOVE. And the echo of the to love, to love to love is twirling around inside of me like a really wild top!

With many of my customers, incomplete or inconsistent breathing is the first issue we address together when we meet on the mat. There are belly breathers, reverse breathers and many many breathers who never ever ever breathe into their heart. Oftentimes it can be an expression of a closed heart chakra; an emotional trauma, that caused the heart to close itself off, shut down, feel less……Working yoga therapeutics, over time and yoking mind, body and spirit with breath, unlocks and unravels the flow of subtle body energies around the heart and invites feeling to begin again.

What is that, how does it work, I often used to wonder when I first began to learn it. “Why do you need to know so much Susan?”, is the answer that came gently back to me from my teacher at Kripalu, Joseph Le Page. “Just feel it and trust it, it will grow.”

And so I do.

And he was right, of course.

Patanjali’s, (Father of Modern Yoga, born over 2500 years ago), first yoga sutra, paraphrased:  And now, let the practice of Yoga begin.

Just Breathe, fully and completely…..Just Breathe!

About livebig365

Join me as I dive in to the deep end of the pool and challenge myself to live big and love big. What does that mean? In 2012 , I accepted the invitation to push myself beyond my comfort zone, at least once a day, and engaged and responded to my life, or a given situation in my life, in a way that would normally scare the hell out of me. Why did I do it it? Because it was time time to begin, and I was ready! Each day brought a new revelation, lesson, challenge, encounter, a teaching moment, that revealed to me that living big and loving big are uniquely interconnected. Welcome 2013, the year of lovebig 365. Each post was an expression of love experienced, witnessed, inspired, manifested. It didn't always make sense in the moment, and yet its sheer mystery hopefully evoked a beautiful affirmation of life and all of its shimmery brightness; broken up, lovely to behold, tender and full of purpose. 2014, jagged, bumpy, disjointed posts. 2015, silence, and plenty of growth within that silence. Manifesting 2016: The creation of a gathering place for gratitude. Join in the wavering, audacious, unequivocal fun. 2017: Reflection 2018: POWER, MAGIC, TRANSFORMATION
