Beyond excitement. The only way to adequately express how I felt about going into this experience this past weekend. You see I was starting to train for the Hot Warrior Yoga teacher training program. Three long days, many hours, 30 to be exact and eleven other women to share this adventure with.

I realized that I continue to struggle against being too hard on myself, I learned that we’re all afraid of remembering and I remembered that what goes on in my head can either damage or rebuild.

Balasana, also known as Child’s Pose, is meant to center you as your practice begins.  Leave the world outside for the moment focusing only on your breath, letting go and preparing to return to the mat.
