[A Special Message From Joy at Tribalance]
Hello my yoga family! I am finally taking my head up from getting everything going online here at the studio and finding a chance to reach out to you all. I miss seeing your faces in the yoga room and in the halls. But we will see each other in person again, and God willing- Soon! I know some of you are really struggling with this physical isolation. I want to call it “physical isolation” for a reason. One of our greatest skills as human beings has always been our ability to come together- to gather together, to congregate in times of crisis.
That has been stripped away from us. But just because we can not be “physically” together does not mean that we are not connected and that we can’t still connect to each other each day. I have been resisting technology my entire life! And this period of time has taught me to be grateful for the advancements so many have made that has enabled us to connect through the screens today.
But balance is the key with that right. Attachment to anything is a slippery slope.
In yoga we talk about how attachment is the cause of suffering. Right now we are suffering because we are attached to losing the things that we loved so much. The thing is though, those things are not lost. We have a temporary new norm to contend with and I know we can handle that. We talk in yoga class all the time to let go of the things that no longer serve us- and we should do that, That is Yoga 101, Beginner level yoga. Letting go of the things you love- now THAT is a really advanced practice And I know we all are ready to advance. Remember when you let go of what was you make room for what is and for the blessings waiting to unfold into your life.
Let’s put our Yoga into Action! We need to let go of our attachment to the way things were and embrace the way things are right now. This new norm has positives within it. I bet you are finding little things each day to be grateful for. And if not- let us help you work to find some.
Stop Look and Listen! Get on your mat! BREATHE, Give yourself the space to HEAR the answers.
This period is a lesson for us to slow down, to reconnect to ourselves, to reconnect to the Earth, and to learn to really connect to each other!
How many times have we talked about noticing couples we see at restaurants sitting across from each other with their noses in their phones just texting away to someone other than the one they are with. This is a period for us to learn how to be with one another again, Fully present and without distractions. This is an opportunity to really deal with things that have we have been avoiding for far too long. Dealing with these things may be messy at the start, but they will only give us an opportunity for understanding, growth and ultimately happiness! The only way out is Through!
Let’s start talking and supporting each other the best ways that we can! Even if that is just a kind word or simply to say “I understand”, “I am here” and “you are not alone.” We are STRONGER TOGETHER I love this community! This is a community brought together by the drive to persevere, to grow, to elicit change and to light up the world.
I know for me when I start to slip down a rabbit hole of sorts, my way back are these things: My Community of supportive and encouraging beings, getting back on my healthy routine of meditation and yoga, and holding myself to better eating and sleeping patterns!
