The Art of Letting Go through Yoga

This week I presented me  a great deal of emotions on my plate. It was a difficult week, emotions were running high and I felt completely agitated. Due in part to mother nature, and in part to some negativity at work. I felt so completely riled up about the work situation, that I was having a difficult time of letting go. With my hormones all over the place I felt anger coursing thru my veins. I was wronged and because I look at the bigger picture I knew that in 5 years this situation was not something that would matter or even be worth mulling over.  On ward and upward I told myself.

I just needed some time, and space. I needed to open my heart with compassion and let go. I needed a release of all the emotions swirling in my mind. I  came home from work and decided to focus on a heart opening sequence. I knew I wanted to let go of those negative feelings that weren’t going to anyone any good. I wanted them to dissipate and take on a new form, forgiveness. The heart opening sequence was just the thing! In addition to my regular morning practice, in the evening when I came home from work I would do the heart opening sequence. I am happy to report that after a few nights of practice, some sleep, and lots of water, the anger toxins if you will have left my system.

I’m glad its the weekend, sleep seems like such a sought after commodity sometimes. I am pleased that today finally the sun is shining outside, even if the temperature is a bit chilly.
