When you close your eyes...you can truly see. This is what the Buddha tells us, and I've found it to be so true...
Last night I taught my blindfolded yoga workshop at a new studio in town, YOGA DOG, owned by Steve Mullen. The space is truly beautiful, and there is a warm, inviting energy to it that is very special. I'm always surprised and grateful at the ease with which people trust me and remove their sight, but I'm never surprised by the huge smiles afterwards!!! You simply must dive within when sight is restricted...it is a powerful tool not only for meditation but also to connect with your breath.
Thanks to everyone who came out, and a special thanks to Steve for hosting me! Check out his studio if you have the time....
