My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 12
[ Doing Me ]
Tuesdays are my heavy-hitter days. I coach a group session for Entrepreneurs via TeleConference for 75 minutes, then have a 45 minute break until my hour-long kickboxing class commences. It’s such a great flow; a flow that allows me to be filled up and nourished by Primary Foods, which are the foods we don’t eat:
Primary Foods, a term I’ve learned as a student at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, are your
Relationship, Career, Spirituality and Physical Activity.
When these are in balance, you are in FLOW, which is the secret to happiness.
When I coach, I get to connect and build relationships that are so rewarding, while on the other hand, I get to build a rewarding career for myself, too. I satisfy my Primary Food areas of Relationship and Career. When I kickbox, I get to have fun with Physical Activity.
Though I have a daily meditation and chanting practice, my Tuesdays have become more WHOLE in this 30 Day Yoga Challenge because of the addition of Yoga.
I get to Do Me so fully and it feels wonderful…
[ The Experience ]
I took a Yoga Basics Class tonight, and this time the primary teacher was back. Last week I was there, she had a sub. I’m glad I got to take a class with her. I enjoyed that the first thing she reminded us was that this was for us, and all we needed to do to have all we wanted was ask.
Of course, I didn’t ask anything, though my head screamed, “ask about downward dog”. Alas, I sat, and sure enough, when we got into the first downward dog, she came over and helped me position my hands properly.
I don’t know why I do that. Maybe I know my mind is so powerful that even in silence, the Universe listens. I could speak up more. Then again, no judgement, since I speak up just fine when “needed”, I suppose.
[ The Takeaway ]
“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
― Howard Thurman
At the beginning and ending of our class, our teacher said this quote. She reminded us that to come alive can happen simply through our breath.
I’d add that it can happen simply by being filled up by the Primary Foods that feel yummy and fuel you…
[ Question For You ]
