February Yoga Challenge: Day 25, How to you take up space?

As I went through my yoga routine today, I pondered a comment a yoga teacher made while she explained proper Virhabadrasana B (Warrior Two) alignment. She said when we look over the fingers of our extended hand, we aren’t focusing on the hand but the space around the hand. It is fascinating to stop and ponder the Space around us as we move through each posture and how we use space as we live. This idea goes beyond yoga practice.

Every moment of every day we inhabit a unique space in the universe.

Because we take up space, we exist. 

Other objects can’t inhabit space where we are.

No person can use space the same way. 

No matter my physical or mental state, I’m glad I exist.

Thank you for reading! See you tomorrow.
