Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self." -The Bhagavad Gita
After Lizzy died I was in shock for a year or more. Yoga was one of the tools that grounded me, brought me back to the moment. There were many yoga classes that I cried my way through, and in those moments I was hurting and needed to release- allowing myself to feel the deep loss, to feel it emotionally and physically. Pain in my heart, sadness and loss. I am a better person because of Lizzy. I wouldn't trade those two years with my baby girl, even knowing the pain of her loss. I try to be grateful that I had something so wonderful to lose. She continues to teach me peace, and how to be an instrument of peace.
With our family currently living on the road, I am missing my regular yoga sessions. I am currently putting effort into my daily practice and looking for practitioners and studios around the USA. Part of my practice is taking in my current surroundings. I try to really live in my moments and notice the beauty around me, give thanks, feel blessed.
