We’ve been focusing on finding your balance amidst the chaos…
I used to never teach Eagle pose in class. Through Equanimity, the series of balancing postures, I skipped it and wasn’t even aware until someone called me out on it! Great.
Then, I was in the inquiry of Eagle Pose in my own practice. I made sure to teach it in class to see what was there.
I asked myself, “What’s here for me? Why am I skipping out on this pose?”
From my physical practice, I felt tightness is my upper back and chest. I felt like I was protecting my heart. Eagle Pose helped me see the rigidity in my body and emotions. With this awareness, I was able to begin to heal and explore my equanimity.
In my willingness to look, this Eagle ordeal felt chaotic. The tightness felt hard and then I explored in the possibility… Eventually I found my equanimity where I didn’t want to look.
