Perfect Moment Monday -- Balance


Today's Perfect Moment happened during my third Power Yoga class. I just finished my free first week at the warm power yoga studio down the street.

I am challenged by the poses we do and the pace we take. That combined with the room temperature of 95 degrees really makes me sweat. I'm not talking "glowing" or "glistening;" I'm talking sweat dripping off of my body and toweling off frequently because I'm working so hard. As I flow from pose to pose (trying to focus on my breath, alignment, balance, and sweat, etc.), all I can think about is how much water I will have to drink to replace what I will leave on the yoga studio floor.

Although there were several perfect moments, the one that sticks out in my mind is flowing from eagle pose (pictured on the left) to Balancing Stick (pictured on the right) without touching my foot or losing my balance (all while dripping sweat).

When I do yoga, I feel so powerful, strong and balanced. This moment was (in a word)...perfect!

I am totally in awe of you. When we did this class together last week, this part was so hard!

Thanks for reminding me of that flow. I will practice it today.
