A young vineyard full of vigor and an old vineyard showing the effects of age and environment. I acknowledge that I will not revisit the energetic level of youth but I have pruning shears in my hand, and I seek the resilience of the old vine that is revealed when I chop away at the years of accumulation. Old cordons and new canes in old vines, woven together as the seasons have progressed. The vines stay alive through each year but they grow tired without attention and renewal and the time has come to tend them, to revive them. So many metaphors for my life are in the vineyard and the vines. What can I cut out of my life that is simply taking up energy …. where can I focus my attention to breathe new life into old roots …. my journey of renewal is a slow and deliberate process, like my progress in the vineyard. Resilience … persistence …. characteristics of a concord grapevine

Update 2: The return of outdoor classes is the best option for me to share yoga.
As Autumn draws us in allow yourself the gift of nourishment. Welcome the slowing of your movements as the weather requires more attention to negotiate when you are outdoors. More time to dress, more time to clear your path, more time to acknowledge your Breath and to make room for it. It is a time to soften, to focus Energy and Spirit to release into Grace as the Earth around you settles deeply into rest.
Life is offering sufficient challenge, and it stirs the restlessness from another time .. a time of planning, of more certainty. But we are here now, and now is more unknown than our experience has prepared us for. Prana, the Energy of life, can be cultivated and as that connection is bound we are returned to Peace. Practice breathing.

Seated wide legged forward fold .. sand bags to anchor thighs, securing down into sit bones, a block to support my forehead as I fold slowly toward the Earth. As I soften and yield to the stretch I feel a release from holding on .. from gripping.. in my body .. in my spirit .. and I fold more deeply until my forehead lightly kisses the block and I surrender … and a lightness comes in even as I feel my weight drawing downward.
I release from the fold, and rise, strengthened and restored.
