Gratitude of the Day, #1
GOTD: the practice of yin yoga under Stephen Bison's mindful direction.
Yin is about so much more than just holding a pose for longer than usual. It's more meditative, encourages reflexion, contemplation, and working within oneself to grow and transform within the mind and spirit.
Stephen has a gift - to be able to effectively convey, inspire, and nurture these ideas through his calming, authentic personality and interesting analogies and metaphors shared during practice.
Today, I want to make note of his crab and monkey stories, illustrating the importance of letting go of attachments. I hope that I'll be able to remember them when I feel discomfort in releasing my own, internal attachments that weigh down my spirit. Thank you, Stephen, for being a lighthouse for your yogis.
