The practice of returning home

In returning to my home studio after a week away, I am reminded that as part of my yoga and meditation, I love the ritual of returning to my mat and placing props and inspiration in a special way to support my practice. 
Though after having traveled to visit my brother this past weekend, I was reminded of another aspect — part of living in alignment with my practice off the mat, yoga goes with me wherever I am — even if I don’t have my mat or props. 

One element of yoga represents a connection to my core sense of being — not only to myself, but the connection to the world around me. It draws out a sense of ease and comfort — it feels like home, resting in this connection.

I have found that it is not so much about when, where, or how I practice — but that I practice. 

So each morning, I found a corner of hardwood floor in my brother’s home — just enough space, and I practiced, finding home again and again. 

Sharing my practice this week at Eka Yoga Seattle:

Thursday @ 4:30pm / Saturday @ 4pm / Monday @ 615am
