Finding ground with my head in the cloud

Today was Power Vinyasa with Gaylinet.

I thought it would be Tina T, since it is Thursday evening, but traffic led to us having a substitute teacher for the day. The teacher introduced herself as "Gaylin" and I had no idea this was the "Gaylinet" whom I'd heard much about previously. Nonetheless, it was somewhat of an exciting experience to again have a new teacher that I hadn't seen before.

The class felt really good. In part, yesterday was a day off, so I was somewhat rested. But also, her sequences and timing were just a little different from many other instructors. Though she did work us, the way the class was structured really gave me a feeling of ease throughout.

I've got a lot going on in my head right now. There are a lot of big things happening, and changes on the horizon. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that today was "a big day" for me. Yet, I am still feeling like I am in balance, and still feeling calm and grounded. And, in spite of all the things that could understandably be overloading my circuits, I arrived on the mat and was able to quite effectively let it all melt away and stay in a very enjoyable practice.

The yoga is what enabled this for me on and off the mat.

Learning about non-attachment and getting small tastes of it has been enabling me to feel "ok" about all possibilities, rather than getting too set on one or another outcome being "what must be."

I'd like to keep that going.
