A Message From Helena
Back to my Mat.
It continues to amaze me how the practice of yoga is always creating subtle shifts in my body and more so, awareness in my mind. I have hundreds, to thousands of hours on my mat as a student and as a teacher and I am still in love with the magic of yoga. I instruct daily and watch bodies move; this is in fact most of my day and most of my week. This attention to teaching has allowed me to notice that I face all the same challenges my students do; my body feels fatigued, I find certain postures so difficult and sometimes making it to your mat is the hardest part. But, I am also recognizing, personally, how essential it is to make that time and I am excited to get back to my mat as a student, I’ve got to. I can feel that it’s time for growth, commitment and change. I’ve been trying to make some shifts lately to practice more, listen to my body more and change where I am investing my energy. So I have joined our 30 day challenge! I really have no idea how many classes I will be able to complete, but I am prepared to make my best effort. I did my first 30 Day Yoga Challenge at De La Sol and I can remember it being the most energized and inspired I have ever felt in my life. The practice is powerful and I love how it always shows you what you need if you just listen. My body and my mind have been telling me I need this for awhile, so here I go! It feels insanely remarkable that I have found and dedicated my life to something that continues to challenge me, but also fills me with so much passion, patience, forgiveness, understanding and persistence. I think this is what they call love and I am honoured everyday that each of you let me share this wild ride with you. To everyone else completing a 30 day challenge, good luck, lets do this!
With Love & Gratitude,
