In the workshop (Sunday 13th Sept), I explain to the students how sometimes life doesn't happen the way you imagine or expect it to be. There won't be any rhyme or reason to the situation and you would have thought or imagine life to be unfair. But if you choose to open your heart to 'grace', you learn life has a way of re-aligning you with the Universe.
When we practice yogasanas (the poses), we can try to re-connect ourselves to the Universe through the poses. Instead of going into the poses immediately, perhaps we could gather the energy we have around us, directing the 'prana' into our center. And from that 'center', we start to engage the 'energy' into our feet, our legs, our arms, our hands and feel the intrinsic goodness in ourselves. We could also soften our 'heart' to the world, reconnecting as well as realigning our inner and outer 'being' to the Universe. A feeling of 'oneness'.
Feeling 'connected' to what we do in life and visualizing the 'bigger' picture that's waiting for us, we might perhaps be more open to the flow of life without resistance or being too 'pushy'. We probably feel better in ourselves to 'let go' and not feel we have to be in 'control' all the time. Cause learning to 'open' to grace, we feel the freedom and stability that gives us that utmost happiness and respect for all life.
