Beautiful Voices

Every yoga practice has been beautiful in its own way. Thursday was about opening the throat chakra.

Breathing in the ocean air and gazing across the turquoise and azure waves is the ultimate blue experience.

Communication originates here, listening and speaking.

The reflective properties of water, particularly when still, mimic listening and water in motion from tiny ripples to crashing waves mimics expression.

The tide is reciprocal flowing in and out, bringing treasures to the beach and taking treasures out to sea.

In the distance, howler monkeys alternately roared using their powerful throats to communicate with each other. There was listening and speaking. Reciprocity. The howls grew louder as the monkeys moved closer to the yoga deck. We began to communicate with the monkeys replicating the tone, cadence and timing as best as we could.

Full disclosure: I photographed this howler monkey from our transportation on the way to Anamaya. The monkeys in the trees would have been impossible to photo due to the lighting and distance. However, they were delightful to observe in person.

My eyes opened from savasana and gazed across the ocean and then fell into the forest through a diamond-shaped hole in the leaves to observe the monkeys.

Magical timing.
