This is Post 10 of 10. As I move towards my 60th birthday, I am pondering the gifts brought to my life by the practice of the Kaiut Method, my work with Tucker Shelton and my studies with Francisco Kaiut. I’d like to share some of those thoughts with you. I’m thinking one post per day as I count down to 60.
Yoga is a quest for our best version in the future. Envision yourself with the quality of life that you want for yourself! Imagine what it could be like if you could keep on doing the things that you love to do well into your 90's! This is one of the many reasons I love practicing Kaiut Yoga! I plan to walk throughout the rest of my life with freedom and ease!
I mentioned in Post 1 that I had become very sedentary and put on weight. Did Kaiut help me to lose weight? The first thing I really noticed in my day to day life was that I felt more and more willing to jump up and DO things… simple things became easier to accomplish with ease. And that ease was SO WELCOME that I found myself doing more, feeling more adventurous with walks and activities that just a few months earlier I would have declined, preferring instead to just sit!
This increase in activity helped me to lose the extra weight that I had been carrying. I have dropped 45 pounds over the last 4 years and I’m now down to a weight that I haven’t seen since my 20’s!
As I have written these posts over the last few days, I have had the chance to look through a lot of photographs to pair with my posts. I quickly realized that when looking at photos of myself, I could tell if the photo was from before Kaiut or after. I thought that was interesting. So I am including a just before I started doing Kaiut photo and a very recent photo of myself with this post. There is sense of ease and joyfulness reflected in the current photo that is lacking in the before.
We all stand the best chance of thriving when we can be adaptable, creative and resilient! For me, the Kaiut Method helps me to do just that. It has become a way of life. I can honestly say that at 60, I feel better than I did in my 30’s!
Thank you for following me on this journey.
