“collect all parts of yourself”

as you know this momma’s been suffering a wee bit. nothin’ catastrophic but no one orders post-partum depression off the menu (and for good reason).

the awesome news is that my self prescribed treatment plan includes yoga immersion and yoga works. so, yay.

the double yay is that whilst recently getting my ass handed to me in power yoga class, the teacher also gave me a serious pep talk. well, not just to me… i promise i’m not gonna be all nutty and claim that she knew what i was looking for but, common now, obviously the universe heard my call for help:

“when you feel caged in, uncomfortable and on the edge, don’t do anythingbe still, just be there in the discomfort, and make peace with what is. then, when you’re gathered, let the process find you” – jodie, yyoga, 07/03/2013.

i think it’s safe to say that no further explanation is required.

  1. This made me smile…Jodie is my all time fave teacher at yyoga….I’ve been doing her power and hot classes for a few months and she always seems to say the right thing at the right time to the entire class…and completely get where you personally are at. How is that possible?

  2. Wow!! I don’t know if I could do that – LOL!!

  3. so true! we spend so much energy avoiding discomfort that everything feels so much bigger. at least i do!
