JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 211:: on top of the world

6 Aug

Day 210: Up in the clouds.

Oh. What. A. Day.

Sometimes it’s hard to remember what is in my backyard. I see the peak of Mt. Baker every day, usually, when there is sun, peaking out from behind the top of a tree.. And yet… I had NO idea that Mt. Baker is actually THIS…

Until today.

Stacy took us on a seven-mile hike and up, up, up we climbed…

Through snow…

And yoga poses….without falling over or down the cliff I might add…

And flowers…

And with canine helpers too, this little girl was herding us all up the hill, and there was something quite reassuring about that. Like she knew the way.

And now, at night, as I am safely tucked in, sitting at my kitchen table, much closer to the sea than to the “ski” up above. But I am remembering what it felt like to be up in the clouds. In the fresh air, the cool wind and untouched beauty.

It’s breathtaking, really.

So far this year with this promise, I have done yoga on the beach, on a train, on a plane, and, now, on top of a mountain.

And no matter how high up we go, or low we land, (or wobbly our legs feel) I am learning to stay grounded.  Feet on the ground, head in the clouds, rolling with the waves. Like the Mountain, the Tree, and the Sea.

And maybe that is what yoga is trying to teach me?
To be with Nature.
Instead of pushing against her.

More tomorrow.
