REINVIGORATE or is it REVIGORATE?


The practice of yoga does not need silence for effective healing. Yoginis can laugh, stream tears, conduct introspection in silence or non silence. Yoga practice is personal. Now, if we have shared practice, you have heard me say... if you need meditative yoga I am not your girl.... And we laugh. I am not a silent yoga practitioner. The sound of silence can either frighten the hell out of the yogini or revigorate the practitioner. Yes, yes I said revigorate. I coined the term this week to my sister. She was sharing about tiredness with me. I countered with practice yoga and revigorate. My sister said, “Oh my Lord, revigorate…I hear a blog coming”, And I laughed aloud, as I am sure she was correct.

Just like with George Harrison -Sing it with me... Oh my Lord-Hallelujah my Sweet Lord... I really wanna... (Ohhh I digress). I know the word in English is re-IN-vigorate/reinvigorate. I just felt all yogini like coining a new phrase. The 50+ yogini understands the words Simon, Garfunkel and George Harrison. The under 50 yogini-just hang with me...I've got you. Possibly, the new revigorate will make it into the urban dictionary. Revigorate-(noun) to practice yoga when presented with tiredness of the mind and /or body. What do you think? Would you like to revigorate this week? Silence...did you just go silent? Hahahaha!
