Fall is in full swing up here in the Rocky Mountains. As you can see, the leaves are in the midst of a grand happy dance.

It's always sad to see summer go. Yet, there is so much to look forward to. I am thankful to live in a place that experiences seasons, they make me appreciate change and all that it brings.

Throughout times of change I believe it is especially important to try and stay present. I had an intense, beautiful, and much-needed home yoga practice this morning. Change can be scary and unsettling. Therefore, I find my yoga mat to be my safe haven. To be honest, I really did not want to practice this morning. I began to distract myself with the internet and finally decided to get my butt onto my mat. Thank goodness! Later in the day I was doing some yoga philosophy reading and found this quote:
"When you understand that the practice of yoga works to release blockages in the many layers of the body it helps you understand why sometimes we resist-strongly resist-our practice. Blockages in the body contain hidden fears or unexpressed emotions. In short, yoga forces us to FEEL, something we don't always want to do."

Ah, this funny life we live!
