Today in my yoga practice I was doing a twist and I immediately thought: “I’m so grateful to be right here, right now, doing this twist…” It sounds so ridiculous after the fact but you need to understand that I was so feeling the moment of it. Everyone in my world was safe and well in that moment. I felt at peace in that moment. I saw all the internal workings of my body, the breath, the blood, the cells, the neurons, the bones, the tissues, the muscles, ligaments and organs all in perfect health and harmony. Everything was quiet and focused and centered in that small fraction of a moment. I felt grateful for that twist because it gave me that moment. I hope today, wherever you are in the world, you have your version of a twist, where just for a moment, everything in your life is as it should be. There’s no where to go. There’s nothing to be. In that moment you know for a fact that everything you could ever want you have. Right at that moment. PS if you’re in Sydney I’d like to invite you to join me for my weekly Saturday morning classes at @the.yoga.space in Manly Beach for Women’s Winter Circles. These are classes that combine meditation, creativity and conversation. Think of them as yoga for your soul. The practices that I’ll be teaching will help you have more of these “moments” and promote calm, inspiration and connection. We start June 17. More info is in my profile. #sydneywomen #manlymums #manlybeach #northernbeacheswomen .#sydneyyoga

Lorraine is the founder of Viva Fifty! She shares daily inspiration as an entrepreneur, mom and yogini in her fifties.
It’s taken me a week or more of #yogaeverydamnday to get rid of some kinks in my muscles and in my soul. I don’t practice yoga as a sacrifice of any sort. It’s a welcome respite and relief. Today I am grateful for my limber body on its way to 54. But I also do my best to embody the principles of yoga — the most important being to strive to do good — and I practice meditation and yoga nidra. If my body could not do yoga poses I would still have my mental and spiritual practice. I credit yoga in all its forms to holding it together in the past week and some. Don’t wait for life shattering situations to make the best of this moment. That’s my daily note to self. How about you? #namaste #yogini
