This morning’s yoga class centered on the idea of coming back. How many times do we tell ourselves we’re going to do something–break a bad habit, start a new habit, connect with someone, work towards a daily goal–only to find ourselves off track? The wonderful thing about yoga, like each new day, is that it always welcomes you back. You can pick up right where you left off. And it doesn’t matter if you’re brand new to yoga or have been practicing for years, because yoga, like each sunrise, never passes judgement. If practiced with an open heart, it can provide a comfortable, welcoming place to come back to, time and time again. You’ll find that the more you practice yoga, the more the poses will start to feel like home.
Come, come, whoever you are.
Wonderer, worshipper, lover of leaving.
It doesn’t matter.
Ours is not a caravan of despair.
Come, even if you have broken your vow a thousand times.
Come, yet again, come, come.
What is something in your life you can come back to this week? Maybe it’s an inner or outer behavior, something you’ve been working on or want to change. Maybe it’s a special person you’ve been out of touch with that you can reach out to. Make this the week to come back, with a joyful heart, and open yourself to the possibilities that await.
