“The body knows things a long time before the mind catches up to them. I was wondering what my body knew that I didn’t.”
Sue Monk Kidd, “The Secret Life of Bees”
Sometimes we get that visceral feeling in our bodies where the hair stands up on end, our gut tightens or our heart seems to have a trap door that opens unexpectedly. Our bodies can lead us in directions our mind does not have the ability to perceive. Our yoga practice helps to enhance our relationship to our own bodies and breath so we can be aware of subtle changes, signs and signals that keep us true to our intentions and on our path day after day. When the mind and body are deeply involved with each other, our spirit if free to roam. Connect to your body as often as possible; either with yoga asana, breath awareness, walking, standing, in conversation and talking. Remind yourself that life is a felt experience of being in your body; are you in struggle, are you breathing fully, are you relaxed, are your shoulders squeezing up around your ears? The way we hold our bodies says a lot about how we are feeling. Stay connected…”The body knows things a long time before the mind catches up”.

I just read that quote in a magazine a week or two ago. It really stuck with me (even though I don’t remember it from the book). Such a coincidence that you would use it! I’m still not feeling great but hope to be back to normal by Thursday’s class. Just have a bad cold.
I plan on coming Tuesday morning as long as the weather cooperates and we’re not snowed in! Susan
