(I also have a musician who lives in my soul with none of the talent. Music moves me in an inexplainable way; emotions run through me depending on the beat. Up to a point, music can define who I am at any given time and although I love the music, I am no good at singing or any instrument. Unfortunately.)
Each practice allows me to stretch a little further, bind a little tighter and strengthen a little more.
Although I find yoga to be a deeply spiritual experience, I have a difficult time separating the practice, religion and ideals. Yoga makes me want to be more compassionate, soulful, patient and I automatically *assume* that the person next to me wants to get the same things out of their practice. But that isn't always true. I have learned to go into my yoga practice with no judgement or expectations. It's hard because I find yoga to be a community; a place where we all practice, breath and just BE together and that automatically turns into a spiritual point for me when the complete feeling of peace envelops everything in me.
I have immense gratitude for my yoga community. Thank you for showing up for me. :)
