Taking in the Mountain Air

Happy Monday! I hope all of you had a great week last week/weekend. I was traveling a lot, and really needing to focus on the moment, so I left my computer at home. I have to say it was nice to take a break from the computer. The theme at yoga this month is stillness, and while I'm not around my yoga studio at this time, I can relate to that immensely. It has been a little bit of journey since October for my family.  I'm happy to say that lots of healing has taken place, and will continue to work in our lives. Sometimes letting go of hold habits and old ways can be scary. Sometimes we have to let go of the ideas/descriptions that once "defined us" so that new ones can appear. Stillness can be a big part in that  healing. When painful things happen we often look to outside sources to distract us, instead of going within. As I take this week in the mountains, I'm going to make an effort to be still. Breathe in the mountain air and just love the present moment and what it delivers.

I hope all of you have a great and wonderful day. Take some time for yourself. Turn the computer off, turn the television off, and just be still.

Lots of love to you all!

  1. Glad you are taking a break dearie...breathe deep, smile at the sky, soak in the sun, I taught this morning, and talked about how everything we really need is already within us, but we just let everything else drown it out. In stillness, we can listen to ourselves, our true selves, and find what we need. I hope you find what you need this week. Miss you and can't wait to see you again!

    1. That makes me smile!! I miss you too! Can't wait to see you!! I'm soaking in a little mountain time, but can't wait to be back at ananda and seeing everyone. We seriously need to plan a wine night!
