When in a class or posture be where you are. Be Where You Are.
It seems like a simple instruction but our desire often sneaks in for things to be different than how they are. For being somewhere we are not right now. Perhaps we’re feeling hungry or agitated over something that happened earlier. So can you truly be where you are? Can you be confident, comfortable, and compassionate to wherever you are in your life at this very moment?
This ten minute practice takes you through basic postures with attention to the present moment. Watch as your mind wanders and be with yourself wherever you may be in each pose.
