This past weekend I attended James Higgins' “A Beautiful Journey: a Yoga & Meditation workshop - weekend”, a two-day workshop at Delight Yoga in their beautiful new Prinseneiland, Amsterdam studio, on a stunning canal on a lovely island with gorgeous energy and architecture.
It was awesome.
Through James' patient guidance, we spent about five hours on the mat each day (with 90 minutes for breaks and lunch).
We were able to slowly and deeply "chip away" at whatever it was that each of us individually was experiencing/carrying in our personal lives. With no "right or wrong"; no "good or bad". Just with kindness and care.
Without going into the details of the program (as each person's experience is unique and personal), James' format over the two days was so helpful to expand my "edges" with a teacher as kind and patient as James.
Through a challenging series of breath control, asanas, imagery, chakras, savasanas, letting go, and focusing, (and much more), little by little, I felt my practice growing and deepening (and my muscles and stamina strengthening).
I also met lovely participants during the workshop.
I realized that:
We are stronger than we "think".
We...are...energy (similar to the realization I had with the Ayurveda Marma treatment).
