Lost on me

Yoga is lost on me.

I can do the physical act of yoga, but the clearing of the mind, the stillness- I can’t do it.

I try, but my body is too restless and my mind too constant.

I will continue to try, but I think it’s only ever going to be nothing but a good stretch for me.

    I’ve learned the trick is not to try to clear your mind-it is to observe your mind. I can never clear my mind…but I can be aware of where it is going and begin to train it to come back to my breath, the sounds around me, the weight of my body on the floor, etc. It will ALWAYS wander away-and that’s ok. I’ll just be able to notice when it does.
