I tried Yoga for the first time today. During the last few poses, I just started openly weeping. To anyone who knows me, you know that this is ridiculously rare. While I was talking to the instructor afterwards, I starting crying again for no reason. He smiled kindly at me and told me of the time he was alone in his training space, looked out a window onto a valley, and began weeping for no apparent reason. I now feel heavy, tired, a little weepy still, and content.
Now for MMA club!
This happened to me a few times during my teacher training. Usually I felt better afterwards. I was zzzzoonnnnnneeeeddd out and then I felt a welling in my chest and could feel it travel up my throat and I just burst out crying! I’m guessing it was just “energy” or some kind of tension I had releasing? I dont know.
Yoga does not remove us from the reality or responsibilities of everyday life but rather places our feet firmly and resolutely in the practical ground of experience. We don’t transcend our lives; we return to the life we left behind in the hopes of something better.
Corpse pose restores life. Dead parts of your being fall away, the ghosts are released.”
I might have posted this one before … but, no worries! its a great quote.
