I walked down to the small lake at Still Water after teaching a restorative yoga class this morning. I sat on the small dock there and watched a red tail hawk. I took some time for myself, to be alone, to watch the ripples in the water after the fish "hit" the surface. I listened to the wind in the trees and the jays.
After sitting for a while in meditation, I unfolded my yoga blanket and laid down on my belly and wrote in my journal near the water. And I marvel at how restoring this was for my spirit...the water reflected the clouds and the trees and the birds.
I love this ancient oak tree and I filled my shoes with acorns. This oak was in the view from where those who were in my yoga class could look out the screen door in the restorative yoga class this morning. I walked up the hill from the lake and sat on a swing that was suspended by chains and springs from one of her huge branches. The wind rocked me and I lingered there for some time...
This was the view from the swing looking back at the lake. I feel rejuvenated after this day, after sharing yoga with the nurses. The retreat was called "Healing the Healers..."
I need to get ready to teach a cycling and strength training class at the university now.
