On community…

Standard

I love yoga, it keeps me grounded, I’m a better human because I have yoga in my life, and I trust it to support everyone I share it with…yoga means union, unity, joining, connection… we often view this simply as body, mind, soul…

Through offering yoga for pregnancy and post natal recovery, I’ve been privileged to meet many women…they all teach me something… 

What they have taught me time and again is the importance of connection…I encourage them to reconnect with body and breath to support them fixing their connection with their instincts and intuition to support gentle birthing and joyful mirhering…and to deepen their connection to baby… I offer partner work and group work to help them suport each other…

It pays off, and I find myself tearful today after bumping into a mum who trusted me to help her through her mothering journey…she leaves our city in three days to start anew with her family in another country…she feels yoga made her a better mother and most importantly she thanked me for introducing her to her closest group of friends from the last 5 or 6 years, women she calls friends for life…I simply held the space that brought them together…

And I am humbled that other groups have connected…I recently received and invite to join one group.. 

“Dear Lucy, over a year ago when we all had bumps and not babies …me and the class all planned to do something healthy and ended up going for a curry, J was overdue, ha! we then started a Facebook group because of that and have used it to keep in touch. The group of ladies I met through your class has stayed strong and have been wonderful, funny, supportive, encouraging. We are having a christmas meal, our first ever meet up without kids…”

And so, I find myself realising that all that I love about yoga, all that it has to offer, is so often expressed as connection…

As we face the festive chaos, I wish you real world and virtual world connections that nourish you as deeply as your yoga practice…

About lucyislucid

I am an ordinary mother raising two sons, living with my lovely husband and feeling blessed by the extraordinary joy that motherhood can bring. Life with children has taught me that the brightest sunshine casts the deepest shadows, and yet I remain convinced that the joys outweigh the sorrows and that becoming a mother is the greatest of blessings bestowed upon me. I hope to share some of that joy & support other mothers to find it, in any way opportunity presents. I love motherhood, yoga, gardening and nattering with good friends. If you can't get me to respond, then I am likely to have my head stuck in a book, or to be daydreaming about communal living and yoga in sunny climes...love, light, peace to all...OMx
