Mirror, mirror on the wall…

moyo

Over the past several weeks,  I have been setting an intention to gain clarity on different aspects in my life.  One day before yoga class, that clarity was realized as I glanced in the bathroom mirror.  Staring back at me were the words: “BE STRONG…Stand up for what you believe in!.   “WOW”!  I immediately felt a sense of clarity.   These words made me realize that I AM STRONG for managing my depression and I should STAND UP and help others gain the strength I’ve found.  Namaste!!!

I continued to stare at my reflection and wondered if the people in my life were a mirror reflecting my true self.  Could this be?   I have found myself looking away from people and closing myself off many times before (a typical response of a depressed person is avoidance which only causes symptoms to become worse).  For instance,  if I had the courage to show up for yoga on a depressed day, I would enter into child pose creating a proverbial shell around me.  Funny how I found myself avoiding the part of the yoga practice that would’ve  helped me manage my depression the most!  Now, I realize when I’m feeling raw, miserable and closed are the times in my life when I need my sangha (community) the most.  I don’t need to hide in my shell but reach out and OPEN myself!   Our MOYO sangha has given me love, support and allows me to see that everyone is an authentic reflection of me.

No matter what you are dealing with either depression, anxiety, stress, life/death issues, loneliness, etc. I encourage you to practice yoga to OPEN to your true self and reach out to your sangha for love and support  because they are an authentic reflection of you…..

Come and join me on January 21st as I facilitate Yoga for Depression and Anxiety.

Gratefully,
Eileen Connell, Certified MOYO Teacher
