off the mat.

Monday, May 7, 2012

so i went on my very first yoga retreat this past weekend and let me go on the record in saying that it was one of the most blissful weekends of my life. period.

retreat {n.} the act of withdrawing as into safety or privacy; retirement; seclusion; a place of refuge.

and that, my friends, was exactly what it was.

a weekend filled with laughter, good company, breath, sunshine, and peace of mind. a group of people brought together for nothing but the pure common interest of discovering yoga. because, like i've mentioned a time or two, it's life changing.

i may have learned a few things. like that friendliness is not dead. in fact, it's come to life more than ever. engaging in those moments of vulnerability are some of the most sacred when we make initial connections with others. there is so much love to go around, we just have to tap into it. open ourselves to it. 

forming friendships in the most unique of places - mat to mat - is one of my most favorite phenomenons. there is a yogi saying... may we take what we learn on our mat and practice it in our everyday lives. i am always striving to do so. i am blessed to have made so many dear friends from on, to off the mat.

i left filled to the brim with emotion. open hearts have a tendency to do that... to help you honor your tears and your joy. can't wait to go back for more.
