The coaches are usually required to read books either for professional development or to inspire us to view human movement in a new or deeper light. The last book we read was Natural Born Heroes, which was a fascinating, albeit detailed, account of how everyday Cretans and a group of Resistance fighters led Nazis on a goose chase around Crete during WWII not allowing Nazis to advance to Russia; that advancement would have changed the outcome of the war and probably much more. Though that’s the framework of the book, below the surface the book is about athletic prowess and humans’ instinctual ability to do extraordinary things with our bodies. “Every ordinary person has a touch of the godly.”

I am also reading a few books having to do with an upcoming intensive, continued yoga teacher training.

I hadn’t read any fiction in a long time — until recently. It had been even longer since I’ve devoured a book, but Circe has me riveted! It’s based on the Greek mythology of Circe a goddess, witch, and daughter of Helios (god of the sun). The author brings the story to life, taking liberty to fill in the sparseness of the original myth with vivid detail giving the story such dimension I feel I’m truly privy to the thoughts of a goddess.

As the seasons change, as circumstances at the gym change, I read the following from my restorative teacher Jillian Pransky, and it reminded me that everything will be ok. Change is a natural and inevitable part of life. It’s all in how we deal with it.

“Nature consistently demonstrates the Law of Change. Everything is in the process of becoming something else. We know that the natural order of things is not sameness, but change. We can see this easily in the life cycle of plants and seasons, as spring buds turn into leaves that then evolve from summer green to autumn gold before they fade and fall to the winter earth.

Change can be difficult for most of us. Self-initiated or not, change moves us through a transition zone which often creates a sense of groundlessness. It can be unsettling, even scary, to be in this in-between state of letting go of what we’ve known, to allow for something new to emerge.

In fact, to stay in our comfort zones, many of us even resist or suppress our own longing for change. Instead, we spend a lot of energy constructing our lives… working hard to make things the way we want them… to feel safe, in control. But no matter how much planning or arranging or clinging we do to make ourselves feel secure, there will always be circumstances beyond our control, and change is one of them.

Whether caused by a new season, a new job, moving homes, a relationship shift, or simply aging – the only thing we know for sure is that constant change is the norm.  And, however challenging, resisting necessary growth for too long will eventually break you down, make you sick, or if you’re lucky, just force you forward ungracefully. It is simply healthier, on so many levels, to go with the flow of change rather than to inhibit it.  

In fact, according to yoga and Ayruveda, our well being is dependent on our ability to change. Our very survival is based on our ability to continually evolve. “

THE END OF SPIRITUALITY by Jeff Foster

My yoga mat has disappeared into the ground under my feet.

My ashram has become the coffee counter, a bad joke
exchanged with the barista, a friendly smile creeping over a
frozen face, and the whole world willing us along.

My temple is the shopping mall, the dentist’s waiting room, the
empty meadow in the morning with its soft yellow light and
virginal air.

My guru is the incubating roar in the belly, the melancholy of
the evening and the hope and despair of raw existence itself.

Nothing needs to be added.

My enlightenment is the ordinary moment, this mundane
experience drenched in the sweet nectar of my own attention.

My origin is the breath and the breath is my destination.

My lineage is the hungry cat greeting me on my evening walk,
ambling beside me awhile, rubbing her fur against my shin, her
fur soft like the cashmere blanket grandma used to wrap
around us as the nights came in early, fur becoming skin, and
the cat nonchalantly moving on to peruse a discarded sandwich
wrapper, and me walking on.

My spirituality is deep in the earth; it is in the mud, the heat,
the bowels, the awkward and the inconvenient, the cry for
mother and the courage to penetrate unexplored regions of the
psyche. It is the yearning for home and the happily exhausted
return.
