How goes your yoga practice? Have you established a routine that serves you well? Allow time to pause, reflect and settle into stillness. The cozy warm clothing we don this time of year pulls us inward as the days grow shorter and the air chillier. Use this season to settle into You.

When I was waiting for the bus after university class, a group of us students gathered and huddled together. The day had gotten colder while we were in our lectures and libraries. One of the foreign students was anxious and grew more and more upset. We could not understand his concern. Then he explained. The plumes of his breath rose in front of his face. Yes we replied calmly. In his culture – this was his spirit leaving him and so he became alarmed. He then saw all our steaming breath floating around us. He became quiet and gazed at us in wonder. Canadians! he said shaking his head.Winter! we replied, nodding ours.

Today it is cold enough outside to see the breath. I like to watch it lift, linger and then leave. I have much to ponder and appreciate with each breath. We all do

Enjoy your yoga practice.

June… ahhhh a word evoking sunshine and warmth,  vibrant blossoms, lilac scent carried by soft breezes, bird song, children enjoying the playgrounds and sports fields, and dining outside on decks and streetside patios. When you live where the winter is a strong attention getting season, you learn to savour summer. I often write about winter’s beauty as a reminder to savour what is Now. This is good yoga practice – be present and find within it the beauty, or peace. Be still and the blessing will find you. Summer and winter, spring and autumn.
