Resolution room. I call the room that the yoga class I took on Thursday night and this morning “Resolution Room”. It was a great class. Very full class. Full of New Years resolutions being fulfilled. Some of us that have gone to yoga for years. I wouldn’t say I am hard core consistent but I have been practicing yoga for decades. I appreciated a friend inviting me to the classes in the past few days.
The instructor was great. It was a good class, and I came home and slept well after Thursday’s class. I was glad I went. I was thinking about what it would take to keep those resolutions that starting to gain some form more permanent. What kind of support do people need to help them?
I will never say that all resolutions should be maintained. There are many that probably shouldn’t. There are many that probably should, (doing things to improve your health are usually good things).
One of the great things I learned about the classes I went to in the past few days – I have been doing this for so long that I can actually not just touch my toes but place my palms on the floor! That’s an achievement for me. My balance is still off which means that some of my balance in life is still off. Fixing that. And it varies with each class. But all in all, it has been off for a couple of years. I’m not exaggerating. My yoga balance has been off for quite a long time.
My studio is not going to be my resolution room. It can be my sanctuary. It is a place that has things I love in it. I look at the operative word which is “things”. It is stuff I can live without. But stuff that I do find joy in using to create other things. I look at some of my studio treasures to find some joy at times when I am feeling the weight of other things that I am not letting go of.
That was a couple of pictures from my studio. I have a project going on right now that is part of a challenge so I can’t share pictures of it. But, it is nice to go down and have everything set up, and I can pick up where I left off. I do love having a studio.
Do I have resolutions about it? Probably a few – in regards to my projects. I need to get a few more UFO’s completed this year. In regards to the room – I don’t necessarily have resolutions about it.
If I think about balance within my studio – I think I’m getting there. I definitely have a lot of things better organized which makes me happy. I was looking at my patterns, and notice that I can probably give away a few that I will definitely not be doing.
I do visit my sanctuary very often. I will continue spending time there – not because of any resolutions, but because it gives me joy, and is a part of the fibre of my life.
The “Resolution Room” of the yoga studio – I will be visiting again in the future. After about the middle of February, it is no longer a place where resolutions are given life, but a place where intentions are made and I would hope that an individual’s yoga practice has become part of their life’s routine. Yoga has been a part of my life for a very long time, and will continue to be part of it.
What does your “Resolution Room” look like? Will you continue to visit once life starts throwing in curve balls? I hope you do.
