I’m so grateful to be teaching tonight at Sangha Yoga Collective tonight. It will be my last class “for a while” before heading into rotator cuff surgery at the end of the week. I’ll be teaching the fifth and final principle of alignment, Organic Extension, a.k.a., on this day as “Go the Distance.”
While a marathon may be an experience of individual triumph, our experience of last year’s terror remains collective. From near misses to eyewitnesses, our lesson should be how well connected we are. We count among our friends the fallen and heroes, and those left puzzling how their schoolmate “Zack” could have gone so wrong. Despite subsequent efforts of some to appropriate “Boston Strong” as a mere brand, it is both through our celebration of individual striving and shared determination that we remain strong this year.
