If you are wondering how I am, you might enjoy these thoughts I posted on my yoga community blog. Needless to say I think these ideas apply more specifically to our practice of āsana. Maintaining such an attitude, it won’t be long before I am able to return to offering classes again.

We pay so much attention to the things that occurred dramatically, all at once. We don’t pay enough attention to those things which occur incrementally. Yet the earth rolls toward and away from the sun each day; it circles the sun every year. The flower bursts forth in its own good time, still managing to create drama. The fruit ripens on vine or branch, and seeds grow in these secret places.
