Air. Space and breath. I find these things in my practice: yoga, meditation, writing, and dog. When I practice, I slow down, pause, relax into myself and the moment. I am still, simply making space and breathing, allowing whatever might arise. Through practice, I am nourished and can move into my life off the mat, off the cushion, off the page, and off the leash with more ease, more compassion, more confidence, and more courage. It’s as essential as air.
