Kripalu. Rest and Relaxation. That is how I spent my 34th birthday this year. It has turned out to be one of my best decisions this year.
I arrived on a Friday around noon. I checked in and found out my parking spot was good for the entire weekend. It was pretty close to the entrance so I was stoked. I could start my weekend without having to find another spot. The smiles and genuity that I encountered was amazing from the start. A feeling of community is one of the most profound feelings one can have.
Community signifies understanding. It signifies a no judgement zone. It signifies thoughts and ideas that are cohesive. For me, it signifies peace and a feeling of relief.
Kripalu is a non-profit place of wellness. They have workshops, yoga, meditation, beautiful grounds, nourishing food. They provide a place for people to re-align themselves with what their lives need. I, for one, needed the re-focus badly.
I went in with lots of anger and a lack of patience. Anger for many reasons and lack of patience because I have so much to do, so little time, and so little help. Have you read my article about a tribe? I left feeling hella peaceful and calm.
It has motivated me to start yoga teacher training. I have been consistently practicing and doing yoga challenges on Instagram. Along with reading “A New Earth” by Eckhart Tolle, I have felt like my life is aligning to who “I am.”
Live life with acceptance, enjoyment, and enthusiasm, and you will better yourself and the world.
Namaste. Cheers. Love. 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
