Yoked at the Heart

For my turn for Teach Me Something I chose to focus on the lower back. Mine has been tight from bending over pack n plays and changing tables and my husband’s has been nursing his with heading pads and ibuprofen. So I lead him through a thirty minute low back sequence with a five minute savasana at the end, because when you’re a yoga teacher you force it on your loved ones.

By the way, my husband does not look like that guy ☝🏻️. Picture a robot or the tin man trying to do downward facing dog, and that’s not just because his back is tight. Yoga isnt really his “thing” which is why it’s perfect for Teach Me Something. Teach Me Something is all about getting out of your comfort zone while having the safety of your partner to go through it with.

I realized this yesterday. To learn you have to get out of your comfort zone. You have to admit that you don’t know all the answers and allow someone to show you. There is no ego in learning. The best learning is done when you show up and give yourself to the process.

How are you going to show up today?

In what ways will you admit that you are lacking and allow others to help you?
