Raw, idiom, 14a: in the natural, uncultivated, or unrefined state: nature in the raw.
Daybreak at Sierra Hot Springs. The frogs were ribbiting in the meadow out the window all night. The stars hang breathtakingly low. And we're about to get our Surya Namaskara A on.
We arrived from the City yesterday afternoon. The air is clear and thin and the sounds of nature buzzing around us are so full of prana, they're almost overwhelming to the senses. Life does feel in bloom.
Practiced right away last night — lots of grounding poses, a little music, a little moving the blood. Onto a fiery, heat-building practice this morning. Can't think of better motivation to salute the sun than this remarkable dawn.
I'll be posting a bit here and there, but mostly trying to stay unplugged. Check the FB page for more.
Love from the Sierras.
