“It’s supposed to throw you off balance. It’s yoga,” the instructor told the class as I clumsy struggled to stay in half moon. While trying to focus my attention on an imperfection in the hardwood – a classic yogi trick to help with balance, picking one spot and starring at it – I couldn’t help but relate the instructor’s words about yoga to life.
It’s supposed to throw you off balance…
Thinking about it more as we transitioned into warrior III, I knew I would be saving that mantra in my back pocket for some time. Now, when things feel a little shaky, I try to remind myself that a some instability is okay and normal. It helps us stretch and wiggle in new ways, and it also helps us get stronger.
………Just like a hardy bowl of homemade granola! amiright!?
I hate how most store-bought granolas are packed with sugar so I thought I would give it a go and make my own! (I used this video from WhatsUpMoms☀️ as a guide)
