"Things falling apart is a kind of testing and also a kind of healing. We think that the point is to pass the test or to overcome the problem, but the truth is that things don’t really get solved. They come together and they fall apart. Then they come together again and fall apart again. It’s just like that. The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy."
—Pema Chodron

This week, pull it together with some expansion and contraction work, sliding “sans mat” towards a little float to integrate into your flow. Deep hip openers and slow sun salutations, making your way into warriors, side-angles, half-bound and bound. Use your newly awaken core with some arms balances and inversions. Notice what is different.
