Where is your mind right now? Without judging the findings, chances are you may have been thinking about something in the future or trying to resolve something from the past. 

We are hard-wired to scan for problems and threats. Research shows that we spend about 50% of our waking hours in this state of mind called the default mode network. 

There is another way though and that is with mindfulness; being present to more moments of your day without judgmentas you live them. Is this a day that you can tip the scales and be present more than 50% of the time to what is happening, as it is happening?? You may be surprised with how wonderful it feels to live more of your moments fully.

Leaning into what feels hard

As time goes on, I will be sharing much more about my new undertaking of becoming a “Let Your Yoga Dance” instructor. When I was a young child, I took all kinds of dance classes from a local dance studio in Simsbury. Miss Gloria Rossetti made quite an impact in my early life. Under her instruction, I performed at Eno Memorial Hall in Simsbury. One time in particular stands out when I was about seven years old. I was singing and dancing to two songs entitled, “I’m getting married in the morning” and “Get me to the Church on Time”. Can you picture my costume? You got it--a long, silky wedding gown complete with veil and bridal bouquet. This was a solo routine. I was a bundle of nerves but back in that time period emotions didn’t get front billing. So I stepped onstage, heart pounding wildly, and all I could remember was the words to the song. I drew a complete blank on dance steps!! Luckily, I did a pretty good job of improvising. As they say in the business, “the show must go on”. 

 

Anyway, as I embark on this new dance/yoga training, my memories of those early dance experiences have appeared. A few weeks ago, I awoke to a crippling fear and felt unsure if I could really do this training. Well, I have leaned in, asked for help and have kept moving forward. Yesterday was a break-through for me. I did my first practice teach with a friend. I was fully present and remembered the choreography. I was connected to myself and felt the music move my soul as my joy radiated throughout our dance space. Life is all about leaning in to what is hard. 

I could have scrapped this entire pursuit a few weeks ago. I could have aligned with that old fearful voice that said, “this is too hard”. Instead, I rallied support from others and embraced the learning in easy, little chunks. Here I am a few weeks later feeling proud of what I have mastered so far and ready to ownmy “Let Your Yoga dance” teacher role.

 

We will be launching a combined meditation/Let Your Yoga dance monthly events beginning in October. Hope you can join us. Let Your Yoga Dance is a wonderful dance experience that combines user-friendly movement, moving yoga, and music from around the world that helps unleash the chakras, the seven energy centers in our body.
