Letters to July – Twenty-Sixth

I’m going to try and blog every day during July as part of Letters to July. It’s probably a bad idea.
Dear July,
Today I went to a yoga workshop and I was so excited about the prospect that I woke up at 6:30am and then every half hour until I finally got up and made tea a little before 9:00.
You mark exactly a year since Beth opened her little yogaplace up the road and I started going. Back then, going to classes required a lot of courage. I felt slightly panicked before every class. These days, that little studio is a place I feel almost completely safe. It’s a haven of quiet and warmth. Over the last year, going there has helped me enormously. More than anything else in my life, yoga reminds me that I am capable of so, so much more than I give myself credit for.
Today, we learnt about the alignment of our spines and how to get better at posture. We drank chai, made with almond milk and ladled out of the slow-cooker that was keeping it warm. We chatted and stood around, constantly adjusting to try and correct our alignment. I felt safe and happy and content.
