Today I rose with a large anxiety filled pit in my stomach. I knew I had a very long day ahead of me and with work and family obligations combined with a healthy dose of back from the holidays blues. Going to yoga first thing in the morning was such a bright light in my grey fog of a mood. When the insightful instructor kept addressing the need to be present, I felt like she was speaking to me personally. I floated from my to do lists to my worries and back to my anxieties until I eventually was able to actually exist on my mat. Those moments of peace sustained and lifted me through out the day.
