The scaffolding of habit

Don’t skip yer foundational core work (photo by Alessandra Cardin at Mula Yoga).

Now that autumn, a steadier season, is here, my pen swirls around the softer verbs of structure: layering, nesting, cocooning.

I still crave challenge, but it is taking on a more energetic, rather than purely physical, form. If I could characterize my current practice as a word, it would be a seed. It begins with the smallest thought, idea, or intention, then with each cycle of breath, that seed is nourished with energy, subtle engagement, and fuller-body movement, so that eventually, it becomes a fully-formed organism with all of its life-giving structures in place.
