The year 2000 was the Year of the Dragon. It was also the year my beautiful daughter, Marina Jane, who passed away in 2008, was born. Twenty years. Twenty years goes by faster than we can even imagine doesn’t it? Where were you in the beginning of 2000? Where are you now in 2020? Where will you be in 20 years from now? Flow with with the rises and falls and simply enjoy the dance.
Mindfulness: Today is the day you get to open the letter you wrote yourself at the beginning of this 20-20 Yoga & Meditation. I hope you are inspired. I hope you are loved. I hope you are ready, more than ever, to just be you. I hope you will write yourself another letter and begin this program again, perhaps with your partner, your children, your work or play team or just with you in your jammies.
Movement: Yoga can be a beautiful way to express. The year 2000 was the Year of the Dragon, and the first time I was introduced to the Dragon Dance was in 2012, which was also the year of the Dragon. Afterwards, I laid on the ground and cried. Each time I dance this sequence, I know tears are sure to flow as beautifully as the asanas.
Since then I have come to realize that, like life, everyone does the Dragon Dance a little different, and yet it is much the same. Each dance is graceful, beautiful, sad and joyful all at the same time. I wish you that beauty and grace through all of your joys and sorrows today, tomorrow and every day to come. Life is short, you might as well enjoy the dance.
Meditation: Remember the past and visualize the future. And then be sure to enjoy the dance of life today.
