Stubbed my pinky toe tonight, mid-riff, during a small group session. It hurts. It also completes a series of nagging, little, right side injuries that began at the top of  my shoulder on Monday, moved to my upper quadratus laborum on Wednesday and ended up at the base of my foot late Thursday night.

As a Yoga Therapist I am not at all surprised. My right side is my weaker side, prone to injury; fussy, tight and often uncooperative.

Here’s where I begin: Balls and Straps!

  • Tennis balls on my feet with deep diaphragmatic breaths.
  • Shoulder/Strap with Tadasana and Ujayii Pranayama.
  • 5″ Black Ball at the lower back, heart open, Kaki breaths.

The practice of yoga is an invitation to yoke mind, body and spirit. Somethings out of whack within me. But I’m o.k.; working balls, straps and breath. Opening to bliss, connecting to my own essential nature, leaning into my Truth…

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

    Leaning into your truth. Even without the balls and straps you are doing this everyday you write. Your words are helping this reader lean a little more too – thank you! xoxo
