To be totally honest, we’ve been put through our paces in the past three months. collectively we’ve experienced illnesses, break ups, some financial woes, the passing of a beloved family member and a sudden plethora of puppies! Throughout all the trials we have remained (mostly) positive, supportive and creative in tackling all the hurdles so far. we are a team, and now family.
Every once in while the Universe surprises us with an unexpected bonus. I think of it as incentive to keep on going; a sneak peek of of what zero stress feels like. Yesterday was one of those days. We had an unexpected and thoroughly soul recharging experience. I hooked up with a friend of mine who has studied yoga all over the world last week, and he offered to give us a class a few days later. A couple of us decided during our early morning meeting to go for a walk and scout out a place near the river to have our session. As luck would have it we found the perfect spot on a sandbar. We were so thrilled with our discover that we kept on walking the beach for another hour and a half.
Here’s Kim looking for a heart stones, camera in hand (her third hand)…
After lunch we all gathered and walked back to beach. Yeah that’s right a beach in Alberta! The weather was perfect; 25 degrees and breeze blowing off the river.
Here’s a shot of our Yoga teacher, Brian Dickson. He is a most talented man. I saw his aura that day, it was blue and ringed with gold…
Kim did most of class then snuck around us snapping pics.
We’ve all been dreaming of clear blue skies, and turquoise Caribbean seas.
We had been wondering about yoga by sea and the sound of the waves under a hot tropical sun.
We found all those things in my own backyard, on a whim and a chance circumstance! It is those moments that keep us going.
They are the moments in between our thoughts that our Yogi puts emphasis on during meditation.
When I give it more thought I think that it was more than a carrot to keep us on track .
It was a message to all of us that often what we dream of is right under our noses.
