There are not enough lips to utter
All your fleeting names, O water

I would have to say them in every tongue
Pronouncing all the vowels at once

Today I’m sharing another page from my yoga planning journal. This is one page from a series that revolves around the chakras. This page’s concepts were field tested and taught last fall. We spent several classes exploring the qualities of stability, solidity, focus, and form in the body. I am gearing up to revisit the topic in upcoming classes.  The concepts came from a workshop with Shala Worseley and from Anodea Judith’s Wheels of Life and from musicians  referenced in the playlist below.

Muladhara is not an easy theme for me to teach as I’m prone to zipping and buzzing about in flights of fancy. Fortunately, I have a good friend in Yip, who is willing to sit with me and help me settle down.

Inspiration does not come like a bolt, nor is it kinetic, energetic striving, but it comes into us slowly and quietly, and all the time, though we must regularly and everyday give it a little chance to start flowing, prime it with a little solitude and idleness.

–Brenda Ueland

A little rain each day will fill the rivers to overflowing.

-African Proverb

This is a work in progress…I’ll explain later.
