JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 15 :: compassion

15 Jan

Day 14. Oh Fascia!  

Yoga has me thinking. Maybe even more so than my body moving ….so far in this promise. Granted I have been choosing the “easier” classes in order to ease my body back into some sort of shape.

So tonight when the instructor kept talking about compassion, it almost hurt my head. “How can you be more compassionate? How can you give yourself more compassion?”

All this while trapped in pigeon pose 😉
Hum… good question.

One answer is trying to stay in said pigeon pose for a compassionate moment. Another answer is to not be so hard on myself for the yoga I choose to do.

I’m starting to realize that up until now I have really thought of yoga as “sport.” You know… competition. Mostly with myself but I admit to having wandering eye in yoga studios (you know… the did-you-see-him-do-that-pose? and why-can’t-I-do-that?).

And guess that’s the compassionate answer with my year so far.
Practicing at home.

Since I have been practicing at home there is nowhere else to look but within. No one else to check-in with than myself. No one else to pause the yoga program on my computer and check how much time is left… what? Did I say that?

Yes, well, you know what I mean. Nowhere else to go but up.
Happy Compassionate Friday. 

More tomorrow.
