I know I somehow manifested that knee injury last year and that I needed the lessons learned along the way of recovering. It was tough and ugly, far from graceful and self-compassionate most of the time. But it took me on the path of deeper self discovery and acceptance.
The running was never a chore or a masking - From the very first time I put one foot in front of the other here on the trails of Australia (strangely I never did trail running in Sweden) I automatically started meditating, using everything I practice on the yoga mat; visualisation, mantras, yoga philosophy etc.
With this approach I am now consciously manifesting and working towards a project on Mindful Running for Adults. Keep eyes and ears open! Feel free to reach out to me at anytime from now till forever :)
Ok, now on to a different angle of getting "Out of our Heads and Into our Heart"
- YOGA & ART for adults.
Don't worry we are still doing this with our young yogis and aspiring artists, and it will always be our life-passion.
But it feel right and important to give back also to the parents. I know for myself that in order to be the mum I truly want to be, I need to rejuvenate and keep coming back to "me, remembering what makes me inspired and letting myself continue to grow".
These Friday evening sessions will start with an hour of YOGA Flow to clear out any cobwebs of minds and free up some space for intuition and creativity. Letting go of any self-judgement or preconception. It will be both soft and strong, mindful but light-hearted and oh so delicious.
That will take us straight on to just that, something yummy to eat and let more of our senses come alive. Please let us know about any dietary requirements, it will be a variety of healthy treats on a grazing plate, paired with a glass of organic wine!
From then on it's all about the art and giving into the creative flow. Carly Casey will have lots of knowledge to share as to how it is so beneficial and healthy for us all to tap into our creativity, no matter of "skill level".
It is not about the end destination, it's about what you experience along the way.
