These past few days I have being feeling a bit down, sad and not wanting to feel these feelings while they we coming to the surface of my heart. My tendency is to ignore and not let myself feel sad which in turn denies the very gift of embodiment – diversity of experience. With being in the body there is an extraordinary opportunity to connect and feel the feelings we have so why deny oneself?

When we don’t allow the flow to happen we deny the very gift we have been given. I first heard this from one of my teachers Dr. Douglas Brooks and it woke me up to see that yes, life (every bit of it) is a gift. When we embrace and see all of our potential even with the bad feelings or circumstances then we can better align in every way and go directly to the ocean of the heart. Some yoga’s teach liberation from the body and Anusara teaches it in the body – this one gels with me.

I invite you to see all that you have experienced as a gift, your life as a gift, and that you are a gift allow each one to be a portal to greater awareness. About 11 years ago being diagnosed with MS could of been a sentence to suffer but I used the yoga to turn it around and make something good out of it deepening the value of my life.

Sanskrit: Bhakti – Devotion, Laghima – Lightness, Kalyanamitra – Spiritual Friend
