What a wonderful practice today at Mindful Yoga Collective. Using the wall for standing poses, we prepared for the Thanksgiving holiday by accepting the support of the wall and organizing ourselves effectively, all the better to go meet the world in a balanced state. (Thanks, Charla C, for the reflections.)

Remember–no classes on Wednesday at Metric Yoga, or Thursday at Mindful. See you again on Monday, Nov. 30.
Have a warm, joyful, and balanced holiday. Remember to lean in and engage fully. Remember to accept support, organize yourself, then go out to meet the world.
And when the kleshas arise, the destructive mental/emotional afflictions, the buttons that get pushed, remember this:
“Seeds of unhappiness,
Sources of fear,
Cause conflict and strife.
Roast them in the flame of awareness and clearly hear,
The inner essence of life.”
