Yoga Makes You Well

May you be filled with loving kindness, may you be well,

may you be peaceful and at ease, may you be happy.

I recently needed help.  I asked for it, which was hard.  And I got it.  Which was wonderful.

I was amazed at how the people I know who are helpful to others seem to be the happiest.  

I wonder why that is.

They are not the most successful or the most popular.  But they are the happiest.  Which is a pretty good sign of inward success. 

Community Yoga Studio

There is a nice community of yoga studios near where I live.  I moved to this place in large part to be a part of it.  I attend class often and I get a lot from knowing others who attend.

I went to class today for the noon $5 class, which tends to be insanely packed.  I enjoyed it today.  Many times, I feel anxious with so many people in the same room.

I read an author talking about yoga who said that the more you practice yoga and the more progress you make, the more introspective your practice becomes.  I noticed that today.  In the past, I have attended the noon classes with some hesitancy because I did not feel comfortable in such a large group.  But today, I found I was pretty much at ease in the group setting.  I did not pay a lot of attention to what others were doing or not doing.  I did not do wildly different things from others. but in some instances, I did my own thing a little bit. 

It felt really beautiful to practice in a large room full of people and to feel comfortable with it.
