when nothing matters

note to self: stop trying so hard.

i just taught the best yoga class of my life... and i didn't do anything. ..i asked my gaston college students to close their eyes, to go within, and to practice their own yoga flow at their own pace. ..my goal was to allow for experience of unguided yoga, so that they'd be able to practice (on their own) over spring break.

what transpired was magical.

each student/teacher, in her/his own way, eased through a pattern of postures and movements that can only be described as beautiful.

during the process, 
i was moved to write down notes, 
and these notes were read during savasana:

...................................................................................................flow
............................strength
...ease
...............................................................beauty
poetry in motion
.............................................................................................grace
..................................peace
focus
..........................................................dance
...................................................................................................balance
inner peace

you... are Whole.
you are sensational!

you...are a living miracle!

......................................................................................you... are body-wise

....................you are Wisdom ItSelf!

you... are... Yoga.
