Wakening to a hot and sunny Okanagan morning yesterday. Feeling the weight of the building thunderstorm. Likely the reason behind the previous night's restless sleep. Getting out for a long swim. The first of the year. After lunch, settling in on the mat, overlooking the lake. Practicing yin yoga. The atmospheric pressure finally releasing in the form of thunder, lightening and heavy rain. This summer storm playing out all around me. Breathing in that cooler, moist, sweet summer air. Simultaneously releasing deep internal tension while holding those long poses. Soon after, witnessing a magnificent rainbow. Reflecting the very colours of the chakras. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. Grateful for such a rich and vibrant day.
