This past Saturday I had the pleasure of leading my first yoga session prior to a wedding. What an honor!
And what a lovely opportunity to join an ancient practice of connecting movement, breath, and rhythm to another ancient practice of celebrating the joining of two people through marriage.
The participants included the couple - Melissa and Michael - as well as several members of the bridal party. And although rain and clouds surrounded our early morning setting in the Virginia countryside - and participants seemed a bit groggy from the festivities of the night before - there was a sweetness in the room that affirmed in my mind that the pairing of sacred traditions is yet another way for surfacing the deeper meaning and beauty in our lives.
Thank you Melissa and Michael for the opportunity.
