The article “The Yoga of Raising Young Adults” couldn’t have come to me at a better time. Just getting off the phone with my daughter who is a freshman, 4 hours away from home, called letting me know she was throwing up all night. Hoping that it was due to a flu, I knew in my gut that it was from drinking too much. I was right and there was more. So I started to get that sick feeling in my stomach, worry flooded all over me, and I stopped breathing. So being this experienced yogini, that I think I am, I should have reacted with more ease. I can live calmly in the cave, but when I come out into the world, not so much!
I felt comforted reading this article because I don’t feel alone, and I’m not the perfect yoga master, but I do have tools that I can bring up and use. So I am going back to yoga 101, deep breaths, sit in stillness, listen to the noise and be thankful my daughter is reaching out to me.
