Enormous Yoga Mat?

I was thinking about how we are so connected to the boundaries of the yoga mat.
And that in a practice where we (hopefully) are feeling connected to everyone and everything, we are actually in our own little world (mat) of experience.

So I asked, via the LRY facebook page how it would feel to practice on one huge mat, along with everyone else in the class.

Natasha wrote, "I think it is more a state of mind to be everywhere while standing in that defined space...at least that is how I like to practice."

I still think that in this current age of yoga 2010, a matless class might really open our minds (and hearts!), but Natasha's words help my mat-acceptance.

a yoga question ~

I'm wondering if yoga practice is a way to have a break from reality, or a way that we dive right in?

Yoga is for your Whole Body

You are more than just a head!
You have a body that has needs and wishes and messages, but it doesn't speak as loudly or as obviously as your head.
We must get very, very quiet to listen...
