“The Zen masters always say that you cannot see your reflection in running water, only in still.”
~ Elizabeth Gilbert
Embodiment practices give us the opportunity to turn our attention inwards and observe any areas of running water: any tensions, any imbalances, any holding, breathing, or thinking patterns that have been stirred up by disease and dis-ease.
As we surrender to the support of the Earth, awaken the spine, and explore movement through the breath, we can address these areas of running water while improving strength, energy, alignment, balance, and overall health.
With the bodymind open we feel light and at ease, finding joy in each pose and a deepening of each breath while unfolding into a deeper expression of the Self.
As the body finds release, so too does the mind, whereupon we can enjoy the still waters of the present moment, and the inner reflection of our Buddha nature.
