Day 30, Celebrating Your Commitment, Honoring Beautiful YOU!

Big beautiful blessings to YOU!  Welcome to day 30 of our 30 days of yoga support, such a celebration of your commitment to YOUR self care!!

What a journey this has been.  On April 1st, when I decided to commit to this project for our community, I didn’t realize the impact it would have on me (and my family).

For the past 30 days, this little window in my day has been a gift to come back to my own centre, supported by my family, holding space with compassion and kindness for myself and for each of you – each time you have opened the link to these daily writing reflections and practice videos you are supporting the collective of our global community, you are helping to hold one another up.

Yoga can serve as an anchor, especially during unstable and confusing times in our lives.  Our practice can serve us with guidance, refuge, and perspective in periods of uncertainty.

We are in this together, and I have faith we are going to emerge so much stronger and solid on the other side of this – please just keep leading with your heart.  Let yourself feel whatever is coming up for you, let it move through you, that’s important.

I sincerely hope you’re doing okay, on all levels.  The primary intention of this project was to help to offer support from my heart in the only way I know how with our present day circumstances – I hope it has given you that; physical, mental and soul support.

“Even the most exalted states and the most exceptional spiritual accomplishments are unimportant if we cannot be happy in the most basic and ordinary ways, if we cannot touch one another and the life we have been given with our hearts.”

Jack Kornfield

Now that we’re here, on day 30, I feel such deep gratitude to YOU for keeping me inspired to keep going.   These videos will stay up, so if you’d like to start back at day 1 that invitation is there.

Today we’ll be exploring a gentle and very accessible yoga and movement sequence for the whole body.  Our practice will be a little longer, sharing this time together.

If yoga has been a support for you during this time, I would love to hear from you.  If you would like to send me an email at info@suryadaya.ca outlining your experience through this challenge, or perhaps even a simple reflection on how yoga in general is helping you right now,  it would really mean a lot to me.  Please type Yoga Challenge into your subject line, and everyone that sends a reflection will be entered into a draw to win your choice of either a 5 class pass for when we are able to practice together again, or a personal one – on – one session with me (in person when we’re able or online).  A winner will be drawn on May 16th and will be notified by email.

I leave you now with the words of Arianna Huffington from her work on becoming fearless:

“When we know who we are, we can overcome our fears and insecurities.  We surpass our smaller selves who suffer the slings and arrows of our conditioned reality, and we move to the unconditional truth of our larger selves.  The answers to the questions of what to say, what to do, whom to let in, and whom to keep out become a clear and simple matter of listening to our hearts.  That inner voice helps us align with our purpose, because each of us has a purpose, even if we judge it to be insignificant.  

The voice is there, we just need to listen to it,

When we do, we live in fearlessness”

Thank you for showing up during this time and I hope you continue to while we find ourselves here, for yourself, please keep showing up.  Practice a little bit of time in stillness everyday – it’s when we make space to hear our hearts wisdom.

You are an amazing human, and I am honored to be connected to you.  I am grateful beyond words that your path and my path have traveled alongside one another.  May you keep approaching your practice with curiosity and an open heart, may you continue to listen to the wisdom of your body and your soul, and  may you know how very loved you are.

Till we meet again

With so much respect and gratitude, for the seeds you plant in your practice, nurturing yourself with kindness and compassion.  I see you shining so brightly

Much love,

Amber
