Yoga is Prayer

May your wish for me come to fruition.

Before the COVID self-isolation period I thought that I had made a spiritual connection with my practice, but I was wrong. That connection happened sometimes, but more often than not I was seeking yoga brain through the physical practice.

During my home practice during isolation, I made the connection. My yoga has became my daily prayer. It is a daily dance, offering and connection with the Divine.

I am here.

May your wish for me come to fruition.

Moving prayer:

There are no rules on how to move. I often start with my eyes closed, slowly drawing small small circles on the ceiling in each direction. I roll my head slowly from side to side moving towards looking over each shoulder. I forward fold to exhale and gather my offering and rise on my inhale with my hands in prayer for a backbend where I declare “May your wishes for me come to fruition.”

I do as many of my dancing Sun A’s as I am called to do.

The next movement vary. Sometimes I move into a traditional yoga practice while other times I stay on my feet turning balancing and stabilizing movement into a dance.

Some days the prayer is short. Some days it is an hour. There are no rules.
