So for the last several weeks, I’ve really been struggling to keep up a consistent yoga practice...I had a nice little flow for a bit , going to yoga at 6am, before my mommy shift ...but then I will skip a day...mostly to sleep in .. and then it suddenly becomes easier to skip the next....until I’m out of routine and I’m no longer practicing why is it so hard to do the things that truly make you feel good ?!? Sasha has also had a hard time getting into a regular groove. Friday night over some amazing mojitos Sasha made we decided to do a 60 Day yoga challenge together, to help support one another in hopes to create healthier habits for ourselves and our family. And also because , we just feel more present, balanced and whole when practicing regularly 🕉
So today was Day 1!
I’m for sure one of those yogis , that likes it from the back! I will show 30mims early to class just to assure I can cuddle up nice and comfy in the back row. It’s been about 6 years since I’ve ventured passed the back row ...and to be honest, Its because of insecurities...based on how I feel about my body and not wanting people to stare at my back fat, or my stomach hanging over my pants I know it sounds silly , but it’s true.
I showed up a bit late today and the WHOLE back row was completely full I panicked , totally wanted to leave...it was literally only the center wide open
Yoga is all about having “zero attachment “ i rolled out my yoga mat and laid in savasana until class start. Once we started I kept waiting for the overwhelming feeling of anxiety and feeling like I was under a spotlight. But it never happened. It ended up being such an incredible feeling ...the feeling of doubt/insecurity was filled with self love and the false feeling of being stared at , was replaced with a feeling of community and support ️ I felt the love and the energy of all the other yogis in the room and it was incredible palpable!! This was an amazing way to start this journey with , my partner. And going in I want to give myself permission to try new things ...even if that means moving my yoga mat a couple spaces up. Slightest tweak can make a big difference!
