This week was sizzlin’ hot in LA (even though its still spring) and in this crazy heat I was doing some spring cleaning creating more space in my closet and filing papers. As I was putting order to my stuff and cleaning out my clothes there were two pair of pants I decided to make capri’s to teach in (the heat drove me to do it). While in the process of cutting the pants, I rediscovered my love for altering my clothing and that it is ok to love clothes again (something I pulse in and out of).
Little did I know that Mala my puppy was going to get some new digs out of my creative moment (my being resourceful)… yes I did make two shirts for her and she looked quite cute in her pima cotton 80’s sweat shirts… don’t ya think?
What I love about the yoga is it’s everywhere always taking us deeper into what we value and if we tune into the flow of our heart we can find the joy that resides inside and have an even brighter more beautiful expression. Being creative, resourceful and finding what I value allowed me to do yoga without even rolling out my mat totally cool- all in all enjoying the lila tandava (the dance of play). Find how you can do what you love and tap into something more within to see what you have already and begin to use your resources to empower yourself and enjoy your gifts on and off your mat.
