The Adagio – Part I

Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings Opus 11.  Listen with your eyes closed to the whole movement, if you are able.  No multi-tasking while listening.  Listening with that big beautiful heart—not your ears.  If you have been to a class I have taught, you have often heard this.  What you do not know, is that there is a story.  A little girl’s story.  I will share with you very personally how this story has joined with an adult story and where the adagio of life and yoga, for me, have intersected and saved me.  But that is for Part II on another day, if we are all lucky.  Live now.  Truly live.  Until it finds us, tomorrow is just a dream…


(And you were thinking you were going to hear about some yoga in the park news!)
