Muse: A source of inspiration and a guiding spirit.
Today’s Muse is Rose who is 82 years old and has decided to begin practicing Yoga.
She recently had knee surgery and does not like how weak she has gotten. She feels stiff and sore and wanted to get her previous energy and good balance back.
Rose joined our Yoga group Saturday. Rose and her daughter Chris decided that Rose would use a chair for balance and support.
Every time I looked at Rose she had a good natured determined look on her face. She carefully experimented with the different poses and was a truly amazing presence.
Like a good friend that chair was there to support Rose if she needed it. Rose is going to look into some chair Yoga at the senior center but intends to still join our group on Saturdays.
Her presence created a truly uplifting and inspiring experience. If Rose can start her Yoga practice at 82 years old, what could the rest of us do?
My hero and today’s Muse.
