Seasonal change is a privilege we here in the north get to have. Over my time on this earth I've grown to love the gentle upheaval that occurs with each passing season. In thinking of this transition we are now making from summer into fall, the image of stepping off of an escalator comes to mind. We are transitioning and in the process are required to become more attuned to the steps we take as we cross the threshold and move forward to the next phase. The season itself is like the passive and progressive escalator ride which allows for the mind to wander and allows for us to grow a bit complacent. I appreciate the act of stepping over the threshold as each season changes, I feel an urge to take inventory and to line up new patterns to support my own personal growth. In fall, I see many faces from the past returning to yoga. This happens every year. We've inventoried ourselves and remembered ourselves as better with yoga as part of our routines. We are stepping forward in the direction that is best, setting our sites on the destination of our dreams, turning the ship slightly in awareness, after maybe drifting awhile through the end of summer. I love the energy of seasonal change and see people all around me gearing up for what is next. Yoga can help us as we transition into fall by calibrating our inner compass to steer the ship towards the destination of our deepest longings. With the practice of yoga we navigate back to our true selves. I hope to see you on the mat soon this fall.
