It is 5 pm on Friday.
Saylor is out with friends- Milo is playing in his room.
I have exactly 15 minutes before Mel gets home.
I head to my room and go right for my mat.
It won’t be a long practice. I roll around on my yoga tune up balls.
First I place them under my shoulders and then under my hips. Lifting and lowering my arms and legs feeling the pressure in all the tight places- slowly release.
Full deep breaths in and out. A few new movement patterns. Forward folds, bent knees, wide stance. Softness around my aging body. Stillness. silence. deep full awareness…
OF COURSE there are loads of other things I SHOULD be doing.
But I choose me.
I hear the front door close- I stand up.
“get your shoes buddy!” I yell.
And off we go.
Fall Session of Yoga For Women starts in September.
