So 2017 turned and brought us the potential of the “1” year in numerology.
What does that mean? Well, there’s a lot to be said about it, but basically it’s the fresh start. 2016 (9- the end of the cycle) was about letting go. This year is about healing and moving forward.
So what does this have to do with my yoga practice?
I am not one of the people that are blocked in going upside down. My stocky upper body brought a natural headstand early on in my practice and spontaneous handstands are known to prompt my home practice. But I realized recently (after some shoulder pain) that just because I could go upside down doesn’t necessarily mean I am equipped to.
How am I supposed to be aligned upside down when I never intentionally practiced right side up?
With the fresh start of the year, I’m working from the ground, up. And “balance” is really just a blanket statement. This year is about building a foundation. The roots of life and who I actually am in this world. And gosh, I’m excited for the opportunity to grow into it.
And this doesn’t just mean extending longer in Warrior ||| , this means working in those details with the every day. Getting up earlier and supporting a meditation practice are as as priority as feeling comfortable in Tree Pose.
And everything else? Will just fall into place.
