Yoga and Your Garden Thoughts

When I have garden thoughts in my head, my mind feels full of color and bliss. In the winter you may  believe there is not much color, but it is there for you  if you look closely.

You can still see the beauty in  the browns, reds and touches of greens that cover the landscape of life.

Even the willows stand still and strong in the winter. They may not be swaying but their greatness and strength are there.

And when you add yoga, the feeling is more profound. Most of the time yoga is like a slow dance that moves through your mind, body and soul. You bend and stretch to the sky with arms wide open, catching your inner wisdom. You can focus on your breath alone and not feel caught up in anything.  Just breathe in harmony and breathe out any discontent for the moment.

Yoga is like a swing. There is a pendulum movement that creates an even tone of stillness and movement

A negative thought?

There is no room for anything negative during a yoga practice.

Thoughts are full of gardens and birds flying softly in the sky. And if you have a fleeting bad thought, it goes by you like a summer breeze.

Braving the Storms

Even when the weather is not what you would like, it does not matter if you are doing yoga. It takes over and allows you to forget about what the weather is doing!
Yoga gives you garden thoughts of bright greens and yellows, helping you to focus on your internal being and keeping it well in mind, body and spirit.

 

Yang Yoga

Move slowly or briskly  through Warrior poses gazing through your hand, looking deeply into a space that allows you to be free, yet frozen in the moment.

Yin Yoga

Yin asanas can deeply stretch you hips with  pigeon pose, staying in this asana  and feeling the deepness of your hips planted on the floor, sinking into the mat.

Stay  planted in melting heart as your arms and shoulders get a deep stretch, melting down as your heart center feels still and warm.

Shoe-lace your legs and drop your head to your knees, staying there for a deep hip stretch that softly stretches your hip joints.

 

Finding your Way

Find your way through life with a smile on your face to help you become centered, balanced and in harmony with this moment in life.
