Dear Hump-asana Day gods: Forgive me for doing your day a disservice and not even posting a Hump-asana.
It’s not like I forgot about you.
And who says we can’t celebrate Hump-asana day on Thursday? Consider us fashionably late yogi socialites [and the fabulous are never on time, right?].
I knew you’d agree . . .
So let’s get down to business. As many wise teachers say, as long as you’re breathing, you’re doing yoga. As long as you’re present and cultivating awareness in your body, you’re doing yoga. So, today’s Hump-asana pose is not a physical pose at all, rather, today I ask you to engage in a mental, intention-based posture.
Today’s hump-asana: Breathe. It’s that simple.
Breathe through everything you do today. Whether on your mat, sitting in traffic, balancing your checkbook, or waiting in line for a latte – BREATHE. Pay attention to your breath. Listen to it. Be present. Be where you are. And smile – because you’re alive. The ultimate gift. The greatest blessing. You are alive and breathing. Celebrate! Toast to your life using your breath.
And as you breathe today, consider this:
live with intention.
walk to the edge
play with abandon.
choose with no regret.
continue to learn.
appreciate your friends.
do what you love.
live as if this is all there is.
– Mary Anne Radmacher
Don’t sweat the small stuff. Be grateful. Be happy.
Happy Hump-asana Day, fellow yogis! Get your minds out of the gutter – Hump-asana Day, traditionally known as Wednesday or “Hump Day” in lamens/working-folk tongue, is a mid-week yogi treat. Hump-asana Day features a snippet of a pose worth spending some time exploring. And since they’re ALL worth exploring, we’ll never run out of poses for Hump-asana Day – rejoice!
