human touch and being still is essential in our lives.
i re-learned this when i attended a yoga class put on by urban flow yoga at the cedar room.
if i am being honest – i was nervous to attend the class at all, let alone by myself.
i’ve never actually really done a yoga class and was unsure of how it would go.
how do i follow along, and will i actually be able to do the moves along with everyone else?
we started the class slowly – stretching into the moves and getting comfortable.
they walked us through certain cycles of different moves, and i just watched around me to see how each move is supposed to go. i felt a little creepy staring around – but i don’t think anyone noticed. 🙂
there was a moment in the beginning when one of the instructors was walking around to people, and i noticed she was touching their heads – and i was like uhhhh you don’t have to come over here in my head. but she did – and i was so thankful.
she lifted my head in her hands and began massaging my scalp.
that mixed with the calming position we were in – felt so incredibly nice.
having human contact in a way that was so personal with someone i didn’t know – didn’t feel weird at all.
it actually made me sad that we don’t touch people more often.
shake hands, hug, or pat them on the shoulder.
there is something so essential in the human touch – and we often miss it.
p.s. that cinnamon bun protein powder is WHERE IT IS AT! <3
