Ruth Ayres has a link-up on weekends where people link to posts that are celebrations about their week. I love this reminder to celebrate every week.

Today I celebrate yoga. This was the final day with our international student and our last outing was a yoga class. It's a great reminder to breathe and to be relaxed. We spent an hour stretching, twisting, balancing, and being in the moment.

The past month has had ups and downs and there have been moments of extreme stress. During yoga, peace prevails and I really needed those moments. It was a beautiful and calming way to step closer to our goodbye this afternoon. I'll miss our student, but am glad we made many wonderful memories together - even things as simple as yoga.


  1. I'm sorry for the stress, and hope some things settle down, although I imagine they might not. Your hosting students is so wonderful, Crystal, showing them different ways to live, even yoga too. Have a good next week!

  2. Yoga is a wonderful thing to celebrate! I just got back into it after years away and could not believe how much I missed it. Safe travels to your international student. It sounds like you showed her (?? I can't remember) lots of good stuff!

  3. Crystal, yoga is indeed an activity where peace prevails. I think we all need those moments. I am longing for my sinus infection to be over so I can go back to my yoga routine.
