Comments from 2020 Journey Participants
Open to Grace and Foundation – Journal entry from Cindi regarding our yoga journey:
The basic Anusara principles may seem straightforward but are actually rich in depth and breadth of practice. Like most beginnings, they are just a place to start. The journey itself is the reward. Much like our recent Montana Om yoga journey. Understanding at a deeper level, through our month-long journey, writing about our experiences and sharing our journaling ideas was invigorating for me.
Each and every day I found a different path, a new journey, and a new landscape. I stepped on the mat or sat to contemplate and write, and I felt transformed; ushered to a new place.
The journey was familiar but never the same. From Om to Om and everything in between I felt connected and reborn in a sort of yogic dance that began seated, ended seated, from full moon to full moon.
I appreciated the reminder that yoga didn’t always have to be on our mats.
This was a concept I shared while teaching and with fellow yogis many times over the journey. Several commented that they may not have done “poses” but they did think about yoga in their day to day lives. They were using yoga practice in many areas of their lives they were not even aware of before. This is something I have found just going about my daily activities, yoga is involved in many aspects of my day.
In thinking about my yoga journey Jan10-Feb9, ..I felt I needed to reach back 5 years to see how far I had come to know where I was headed. In doing this exercise I kept picking up little tidbits of wisdom and words that described my journey. Phrases that we hear in every class starting coming to life and opening my heart to receive.
Journaling, I thought was “not my cup of tea”, but again my eyes were opened to a new adventure.
Thank you, everyone, involved in this journey..you make my heart sing

Friday, January 10th welcomes the first Full Moon of 2020 also known as the Wolf Moon according to the Farmer’s Almanac.
Another source shares, “The power of the Wolf Full Moon serves as a guide for you to trust your instincts and pay attention to what they’re trying to tell you. The wolf symbolizes intelligence, loyalty, freedom, and social connections, and demonstrating them in a more balanced manner.”
