She stands balanced on one leg, torso and arms extended forward, the other leg outstretched behind her. Anchored to the earth, her thigh burns and her shoulders quiver. Beads of sweat stream from her forehead, dropping silently at the top of her mat. Her heart pounds though she’s barely moving. Blood courses through her vessels like a raging river, yet she’s standing still. Her breath is measured as she draws another deep, 98-degree inhale; steady in, steady out. As her heart races and her muscles burn, her gaze remains fixed, her balance poised and powerful, her breathing even, her mind serene.
With singular focus, she follows the sound of the voice leading her movements, immune to all else. For 75 hot, humid and sweaty minutes, she forgets there is a life beyond the four corners of her magic carpet, her trusty yoga mat. Though physically bound to her mat by gravity, her soul soars with the freedom of flight.
This hot vinyasa yoga class is among the hardest thing she’s done, but it’s also among the most rewarding and exhilarating.
And after those 75 minutes — clothes drenched, muscles spent, body recharged, mind and heart realigned, she’s ready to walk out and take on whatever the day holds in store for her. She feels calm. She feels strong. She feels invincible. She feels ALIVE.
