“And into the forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul” – John Muir
Welcome to day 26 of our 30 days of yoga together.
What a time, presenting a doorway for each of us to dive into a deeper understanding and inner knowing of what we all need to thrive, that looks different for each of us.
I hope you’re finding time everyday to reconnect with that place of ease inside of you, and that you have tools in place to help you arrive there.
Today we spent our morning out in the woods, and were in awe at all the winged beings and their beautiful birdsong. Our practice today is inspired by the eagle. A powerful posture, Garudasana in sanskrit. When we explore Eagle, we can connect with this upward spiral in our inner experience, as the body folds and wraps around itself, directing our energy upwards. All our precious internal organs receive a flushing of blood as we compress our extremities and breathe in this majestic shape.
Some good questions to ask in this posture are: Where I am in my life? How do I need to spread my wings? How do I need to conserve my energy? What are the obstacles in my life? What is being revealed? Can I face challenges with strength, control and grace? How do I soar in my life?
As you approach the physical posture, can you be there for a few breaths with that single pointed concentration, maintaining balance? Please modify the shape in any way your body needs today.

Thank you so much for joining me, it is an honor working through these 30 days with you. Such a powerful project infused with love and compassion for each of us.
Take your time with this posture, slowly entering and releasing out. Take a little time once you’re finished to sit with the experience – let yourself integrate.
May you feel the expanse of your own wings, and know that you can safely open them.
So much love, till tomorrow
