Ever since I began practicing yoga I’ve maintained that I could survive a trip to jail as long as I could continue to practice yoga. Not like I aspire to living in a prison cell, but the beauty of yoga is that you can really practice anywhere, anytime. In fact, some might say that the more austere the environment, the better. You don’t even really need a mat; just awareness, intention, and a willingness to experiment and learn. What more does a yogi need?
Well, as I rolled out of bed this morning, I fully intended on putting on my running shoes and hitting the pavement for a four-miler. However, when I cracked my eyes open and glanced out the window, I couldn’t help but be struck by the beauty of the scene outside as the sun hovered red on the hazy horizon. I immediately knew I needed to grab my yoga towel instead of my running shoes and head out onto the back yard dock for some yoga. This morning quite possibly may have been the most peaceful and serene yoga setting I’ve ever practiced in.
Here’s a picture of the little dock I practice on:
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!!
