The Knowing That Is Not In My Mind But In The Depths Of My Soul

WILD

BY REBECCA ESCHENROEDER

Something deep within me knows. Knows where I have been and where I am going. It is not a knowing in my mind. It is a knowing deeply rooted in the depths of my soul. It is the animal of my body; constantly in touch with my instincts, no matter how distracting the stories become.

A tiny seed does not need instructions to grow as it fearlessly roots down into its loving mother, to then courageously grow up towards its father. The seed does not think. It knows.

A delicate spider does not study an instruction manual to weave her silver miracle that comes forth from within; providing her with everything she needs to survive. The spider does not think. She knows.

A stallion does not need permission to run wildly through the fields when his muscles ache to move. He listens, he feels, he unapologetically flies. The horse does not think. He knows.

Why must I think?!
Ha!
Exactly.

I shall leave you to your thoughts as I grow… as I weave… as I fly… empty and free…

This is what it is to trust.

Becky received her 200 hour RYT under Arlene Bjork and Grace Yoga Training Systems in late 2009. She then obtained her 500 hour RYT through Om On Yoga under the guidance and wisdom of Jennifer Elliott. Becky made the conscious decision to dedicate her life to bringing her love of yoga, movement, and learning to all walks of life. Her ability to meaningfully connect with those she serves so selflessly arises out of her personal commitment and disciplined approach to deepening her own learning and practice of yoga, philosophy, and meditation. With a degree in Psychology from James Madison University combined with her Elementary Education License from Mary Baldwin College, Becky uses both her knowledge and experience from these disciplines to design yoga workshops, classes, festival offerings, and retreats that expand the senses, broaden the mind, and open the heart to what is truly possible.
