Dec. 30, 2021 - This morning I took a 5 minute COLD shower...it was intense! My whole body was alive, and I noticed the back of my neck is particularly susceptible to the cold. After the cold part, I stayed in the shower another 10 minutes to warm it. What a way to start the day!
The thing about it, though, is t was totally AWESOME! I felt so alive and awake and aware...and I still do, a couple hour after the shower. What it makes me think about is how we, as humans, are given the gift of aliveness, and we should take advantage of what's it like to be alive.
And, of course, that brings us to yoga. In the physical practice of yoga we are invited to be alive with ourselves, and really experience life. Let's do that in this more vigorous class!
