I stumble to get my mat and roll it out on the floor. I'm hungry this morning but yoga first. I settle on my seat and start to breathe.I tell my body to relax, to open to my breath. My breath is like the sea, it comes in and out. Wait, is that a pile of cobwebs in the doorway. Close your eyes, Gabriele, you are listening to your breathing. Let your shoulders go. Inhale. Clenching your jaw will not control your mind. Exhale. Then I lengthen my whole body out on the mat. Oh, it feels so good to stretch. My knees crackle.I pull one knee up and extend with the other. I remember what it felt like at Jen's house on Monday. I love her yoga room.
