a faster horse

a faster horse
If I would have asked people
what they wanted they would have asked for a faster horse

in search of home practice

we instinctively try to

replicate

a yoga class

at home

:::

this is understandable

good yoga classes

can help us

feel better

and we want that feeling

of feeling

better

all the time

:::

but in our quest

to replicate

a yoga class

we miss out

on the potential of

home practice

:::

we miss out on being

the driver

the decider

the leader

:::

only in home practice

can you fortify

your personal

navigation system

and reveal to yourself

how

utterly

capable you are

:::

your home practice is an entirely different vehicle

than a video

or a

picture

or a

class

:::

in class you LEARN to self soothe

at home you self soothe

in class you LEARN to self regulate

at home you self regulate

:::

this highest form of self care

is not possible

in a group setting.

although we learn it in a group setting.

ps: a personal practice is not a solo version of a class, no matter how good your classes are.

it is not a faster horse.

it is something else entirely.
