Organic Movement

leave a comment »

Today is my first time in my lifetime realizing doing the organic movement. As Wednesday is my Ice Skating School schedule, being in Dynamic Flow class is a surprise to my Yoga guru. She went crazy, I guessed. She was not giving us the regular dynamic flow, downward facing dog – plank – chaturanga dandasana – cobra – upward facing dog – and – back to – downward facing dog. Instead, she asked us to stay at chaturanga pose and lift our legs, one by one. My arms literally were shaking! Especially after having Body Pump classes on last Monday and Tuesday.  And as if they were not crazy enough for me. She started to go wild and changed the normal plank into side plank. Dang! I frowned and chose the option. I created my own option. :p

I knew she could only did this because she knew that we were all regulars. I knew it for certain when she introduced us the new terminology in Yoga, organic movement. Ah, ya, maybe it is not new to you, of course. I thought we only have organic farming and organic food. I don’t know that there is organic movement in Yoga.  Well, according to some sites that I just googled, it is actually a natural and simple therapeutic movement that everyone, of any age, of any conditon, can do!  Cool!

Hmmm… it has been quite some time… enjoying Yoga like this. And what I really love whenever I had Yoga class like today is that I can really feel my body. I can really know that each part of it, each muscle of it, works and is well. It is as if I am reminded that I hav a body. And that I should not take it for granted. That I should take care of it. That I should thank God for it. Yeah… no matter how “heavy” my body is, how abstract my shape is, I should be grateful for it!

Ah! Thank God for Yoga.

Thank God for my guru.

Thank God for my healthy body.

… Thank God I am alive …
