Today was cross-training day. Heated yoga stretched me out and strengthened my body and mind.
This teacher was incredible.
I have been a yoga teacher for several years now. Still, my personal practice is always incredibly challenging. See, as a teacher, I lead. I’m in control. When I’m led in yoga, I am challenged to submit to another’s leading and grow every single time.

You might be wondering what Running Lessons I learned on my mat today? Well, I learned more about my inability to live with temperance and consistency. Just like on my mat, as a runner, I start off too fast. I also, don’t practice regularly and then when I do act as if I have been.
With every movement in this practice, I encounter a need for balance, breath, effort, rest, submission, humility and water- Running Lessons.
Who else loves yoga and all it has to teach us about living well?
