When I began the Practice of Yoga last October [instead of undergoing total bilateral knee replacements] the very first question Gina, my first teacher at One Yoga asked the class was to offer One Word to explain WHY we were there.
“CHANGE” is what my heart and voice said, and that is exactly what I have been receiving ever since!
Over the following few weeks with Gina, she told me: “In Yoga you will always receive The Teacher you need.”
Two weeks ago, I attended five classes taught by five different teachers and every ONE of them offered me The Change I needed to learn.
During last Saturday’s Yin class taught by Max, he led us into “child pose” which we held a very long time.
Yin Yoga as Gina says is about “relaxing into the discomfort of therapeutic change.”
Because of my decrepit knees* Max bolstered me into more of a Restore Child's pose, so I could surrender into the support of the bolsters.
