We're thrilled to welcome CHRISSY CARTER back to BYS Yoga this fall for a combination of teacher intensive and public workshops!

RICHARD GARTNER returns to BYS Yoga this fall with a 12-hour CEU specialty training!
I ran into a good friend at a yoga class this week. As life often pulls us in myriad directions, I hadn't seen her in awhile, so it was a lovely surprise to be able to practice together and briefly catch up. As we began to chat before class she told me a story of what had occurred to her that morning.... a discovering and LITERAL uncovering that she had experienced on her way to class.

As many of us do, she carries a yoga mat in her car in case she finds moments to slip into a class. She told me that as she went to get her mat out that morning though, she had to DIG for it. That her mat was buried below all the other things that have recently kept her from unrolling and stepping on to it... work supplies, toys and gear from her kids, and all the other detritus that ends up in our cars. Literally, there were layers of things (all relating to commitments that she has to others) which had pushed her yoga mat (one of the ways she engages in self care and time for herself) to the bottom.

It was an "aha!" moment for her. That we so often move everyone else's needs to the top of the pile... while our needs get buried... until, that is, we begin the excavation.

I loved that she had the awareness of this metaphor and that she also was kind enough to share it with me. I asked her if I could share it with you too, because for many of us, the act of self care takes a backseat... and more often than we care to admit... gets shoved all the way to the bottom in the back of the car!

Here's to taking time to nourish ourselves so that we may more fully engage in all aspects and layers of our lives! I'd love to hear what you are discovering and uncovering too!
