Tonight at the game I was brought back to my love of baseball when I was a kid. I used to know and follow every player and every game of the Cincinnati Reds throughout the 80's. I cannot watch much baseball on tv, but when I am there at the stadium there is something that gets me excited. I can feel the energy in the air and it puts a big smile on my face.
Doing yoga alone in a hotel room is like watching baseball on TV. I cannot feel the energy that come from other people. I do not get the same outcome. I would like to be able to sit on a mat alone and find the same type of zone that I do when I am around other yogis. Maybe though it is that I just prefer to feel the energy of the crowd.
For a lot of us we will have days like I had today. I ran around all day and had only 90 minutes to squeeze in yoga. The only choice I had was to throw a yoga mat down on the floor. I think if I got into the routine of doing this everyday I would eventually find my zone. If this is your only choice it is where you start.
TV is where I first started to love baseball. After seeing my first live game I always wanted to go back to feel that energy of the crowd. I think this is how I am right now with yoga.
