I have been reflecting lately on the first sutra - atha yoganusasanam. It invites us to be present. Looking at where we have been and where we want to go. If I am ready I can be open to learning and growing. Like so much of life, if we are stuck in a pattern or situation that is comfortable we aren’t always motivated to take the next step. Yoga offers us the tools to help us be present. Self-reflection can help give us perspective and faith that we will grow from our decision. Take some time this summer to reflect on the next step in your life. It might be something fun. It might be a job change. It might be challenging. The first step is awareness of wanting something different than where we are right now. You might wander around a bit as you try to discover the best way to get where you want to go. Take a leap and enjoy the journey.
