Some of you asked for an update on Nichole. One of Spira’s regular practitioner had a bad accident, and we have been raising funds for her to help with recovery. Thank you to everyone who contributed to Nichole’s recovery. Because of you, we are only $3000 away from our goal.
Nichole is doing much better! Her surgeries went well, and she is on her way to recovery. She has an amazingly strong spirit. She decided to join Spira’s 200-hour teacher training, she said staying engaged with her yoga studies and the community helps her heal emotionally, she has also been coming to All Levels Spira Yoga classes here and there. She is breathing with us and visualizing every movement from her chair.
She is a great teacher and inspiration on the power of the mind, breath, and yoga beyond the physical asana.
FROM NICHOLE TO YOU:
Nichole continues to heal. So many people have touched her life in so many ways in the past three weeks she wrote this poem for you!
I’m living in the swirl of life
Towards the juicy center
Where all the colors merge and twist
Stretching perfectly aligned
Where there is no choice but to flow in the current
Let it take you
And let go of all preconceived ideas of who you are and what this life should be
In the swirl, all the colors get closer and meld as you are taken towards the center
Until the once individual, brilliant, distinct reflections of light merge onto and into one another
No longer separate singular travelers
Now a new compilation
Interconnected linking of light
With a strength that has no match
Where my fellow travelers no longer just walk by my side
They are in and on top of me
Inside the depth of my breath
Their energy seamlessly carries my broken body
My vulnerable spirit
I’ve been swept into the current of your love
My body may be broken but I’m flying higher than ever before
This life is beautiful
I once was one
Now I can see
And the view from here is what dreams are made of
There are no words that can describe the depth of my appreciation for all of you
My fellow travelers
Thanks be to humanity
The creator of such a vision of love
