Some may say yoga for the broken-hearted but … it’s not broken. It’s resilient and strong – just ignored or neglected.
Here’s an article that might resonate with some of us this season. It can be about any kind of loss – not necessarily loss of life itself, one might be grieving over. Some people may be so afraid of loss – any kind of loss – that they really have a “grip” and clinging on but sometimes more you tighten the grip, the more what is precious seem to slip through. What is there to be afraid of? Loss of faith, confidence, gasp … control. I suppose the list goes on …Loss of passion in a relationship? Loss of friendship? Loss of all that you possess materially? What if you had … nothing? Is that dreadful? Think – Grace, Peace and Harmony. It’s okay – not everything you have to hold onto, “fight” for; there is no need to slash about, slaying dragons, battling to hold onto all – maybe it’s meant to be that there’s an “end”. That it be lost. There’s no renewal and rebirth, no evolution, sometimes without emptying of what’s had its fill. What needs to change. It’s a cliche these days but we just have to let go. Breathe out the stale and let in the freshness. Feel light; simplify and possess less. Relinquish … control and feel the freedom.
Accumulate less, blow the dust off, de-clutter…just have less… junk, in order that we may discover the subtle power that lays dormant within, feel the real wealth that we each possess.
Reclaim vibrancy and brightness, freedom and … lightness through yoga …
Try the mudra – sure way to regain what’s lost:) Helpful to be a guitar player …

Sat Nam = “Truth is my Name” as I see the divinity, the light, the essence in you. As Judith says, we are merely a conduit or at times a mirror of those we interact with.
By the way, having experienced Gurmukh at Wanderlust, Lake Tahoe and at her home studio, Golden Bridge, in Santa Monica, I came to appreciate this unique practice too – I love kundalini yoga. Why do we have to pick one style? It’s ALL GOOD. Incorporate little gems for that precious moment. That moment when you feel that “prana” zip through you:) Awake without coffee:) Besides, I prefer matcha anyway…
