This past fall I began practicing yoga. I used to think “yoga” was just incense, incessant chanting, and gentle moving. Where was the challenge or joy in that? While these are sometimes involved in a yoga practice, that is not what yoga is about. And while these things can bring peace and contentment for some, I have found it’s more than this. It’s about spreading compassion. I know it sounds cheesy and maybe you’re already uninterested, but just give me a moment more.
Yoga is hard. It takes balance and strength and patience. It takes flexibility. All of these things feed energy directly to your daily life. In yoga, you move with your breathing. If we keep breathing in our every days, we keep moving. Some days need more deep breaths than others, yoga can help you find that balance. The soul of yoga is turning fear to love, hate to compassion, and being filled with kindness. We learn to judge less and love more – others and ourselves. To sit still and live in the moment. This very moment is a gift we’ve been given. I love this mindset. I hope everyone is inspired to practice yoga. I hope you all know how much I love you.
So while yoga looks all physical…the real stuff is happening inside.
For this Dynamo, she is centered, beautiful in every description of the word, strong, and full of compassion for others. She is a yogi. I’m excited to introduce Morgan to you! I’ve been following Morgan’s journey on instagram for a while now and reached out to her for this interview (she’s from Kentucky!). She works hard, she loves hard, and she’ll remind you to drop the comparisons and live in the NOW.
Morgan is joining the community of Dynamos, including my 2nd yogi. Each of these people are on a different healthy living journey, but that’s the beauty of it. We are all different. We are each moving at different speeds, distances, and with different equipment, but we’re all headed the same direction. These interviews are meant to capture the journey, where ever that is right now, and inspire each of us to continue in our own unique journeys. You are Dynamo. Meet Morgan…
