Let’s Be Silly!

Toward the end of my yoga classes, while the students are relaxing in Corpse Pose (Savasana), I like to say, “Whenever your mind wanders away, gently draw it back to the breath.”  John enjoys when I say such things in class.  He emailed me his own version:

“Whenever your mind starts to wander, bring it back to that loose booger in your left nostril.  Why didn’t you blow your nose before class?  Why did you clip your finger nails so short?  Maybe it’ll blow out on your mat during Down Dog. Just hope your nose isn’t whistling during Savasana.”

Oh, how he cracks me up!  He’s good for me because he helps me lighten-up and have fun.  Otherwise, I tend to suffocate myself in seriousness.

May we all attend to our various responsibilities – and yet never forget to make room for silliness!  The silliness contains its own wisdom.
