On the ferry from Sausalito back to San Francisco many themes come to mind when I think about yoga…..balance, enjoying the moment, love, happiness, taking time for self, so what is the actual theme for this precise moment?
‘Have an Experience’ Yes this is it!
An experience is a moment in time when we are free from the routine of our daily lives, when we are forced to be in the present because there is so much to absorb, all our senses are heightened. When the auto pilot is turned off, we are now having to land the plane, and when it is essential that we are alert.
Why is having an experience essential for feeling alive?
Without them we actually do go through our lives without much recall for what has happened, it all becomes a bit of a blur.
During my last yoga class prior to this trip, the Thursday theme was to create memories…. how to do so to have experiences. It is not essential to travel to another continent we can do so by reading a book, watching a movie, or trying something new, go out with friends or people we would not normally spend time with.
So my message is to create an experience and experience it fully.
