yoga seeds #24 – Expectations

I was riding my bike to teach last Sunday morning. On the side of the road I spotted a small red ball. The kind with which children’s pools are filled. After a couple hundred meters there was a blue one. Later a yellow one. Then I noticed myself getting impatient about not finding the next one. My mind had created an expectation based on the pattern. But milestones don’t appear regularly or when we want them. Moreover, what other details along the way did I miss while I was busy getting frustrated with the ball sequence that didn’t continue? Note to self: deactivate expectation as much as possible to stay in the now!

Thanks to all my students at Yoga Hub Berlin, who inspire me with their practice.
