I’m in the middle of a heartbreak and I don’t have time to stop and process it because I have yoga students to serve, a corporate job to do and a very busy life to live. I have a feeling I won’t really start living again, though, until I make time to process my feelings.
I tried to meditate this morning and felt the tightness of sadness, loss and anxiety creeping into my throat, so instead of sitting still while my insides were in turmoil, I decided to move and go ahead and try my asana practice. My breath came in gulps instead of smooth, even inhales and exhales like usual, but after a few sun salutations, that tightness in my throat started to loosen up just a bit. I didn’t find any answers at the end of my practice, but I did come to the realization that no matter what happens, I will be okay. Everything will be okay. “Three Little Birds” is my favorite Bob Marley song because it’s gotten me through some tough times. So if you’re going through a tough time, turn it up, do yoga, breathe, and remember that every little thing is gonna be alright.
