When the Breath Leaves

We all know how important breathing is. Everyone tells us to “take a deep breath” when we’re feeling stressed, and, if we listen, we feel better. Deep breaths help us get into deeper yoga postures. Deep breaths give us a moment to think rather than react. Classes are designed to help us breathe better – to focus on our breathing. I even include breathing techniques in courses I teach.

So, rather than write a post now, I’d like to take a moment and breathe. Invite space in. Invite no-thing in. And just be with that space. Just breathe.

This post is dedicated to Mrs. Reyna Cheslick.
