This afternoon was such a joy — 17 young, local runners from Uniontown Junior Cross Country Team stopped by OMBody for a practice.
We warrior’d, we stretched, we laughed … they are some of the best deep breathers I’ve encountered … … and in the end these kiddos RESTED.
What a gift to witness — young people resting amidst this busy, over-functioning, push-push-push noise of the world.
Their coach, Angie, reflected after class, “We’ve rarely been on the same page like we were today during yoga practice.” It was really cool to observe!
It was a privilege to hold space for these young athletes today. Deep bows to each of you …
Choosing a “WE Connect” picture card to describe: How do you feel today?
I asked for volunteers to share their cards, & here’s a shot of two of our XC runners:
“I chose this (funny face) card because I’m feeling pretty energetic today.”
“I honestly don’t know why I chose this card, I kind of panicked & just picked one!” (Redwood tree — I offered that it was a GREAT choice for panic, as trees can help us feel grounded & steady & calm. We usually pick the “right” card whether we know it or not!)
