October Horrorscopes: Healing Emotional Wounds
Was I right for this sort of thing? Would I manage to do at least some of the poses, or would I only manage to get myself in embarrassing , knotty situations? Yet I resisted this rather silly urge, and forced myself to breathe through my nerves and follow along with the instructions the teacher had to give to me. I could do it. I was not able to do execute any of the poses with perfect form and confidence , and after only ten minutes, I was struggling for breath and my muscles were begging for release.
Yet amidst all of the discomfort and fatigue arose something unexpected , and that was investment. I was really entranced by the environment , with the soothing music , sweet incense , and the soft, encouraging voice of my instructor. All of it inspired me to really get lost into the moment , as I was very determined to follow along and attempt to do everything everyone else was doing. Challenging my body to do things that were out of its comfort zone was a new experience for me, and it was kind of a good feeling to be doing things that could ultimately strengthen and better my physique and posture.
Thinking about all the time that has passed since that first class, I cannot help but kick myself a bit, for if I had pursued it regularly and passionately , I would be much, much, MUCH further in my yoga capabilities at age But unfortunately, as this point in time, I am very confident that I am back at S quare 1 , with my clumsy technique and wobbly arms. My reasoning for my long hiatus from yoga is due to constraints dealt from time, money, work, school, and overall motivation.
Tadasana, the Standing Mountain Pose
Yet it mostly stems from fear — although years have passed, I am STILL plagued with the fear that I will be the most ill-equipped person in the room in regards to flexibility and strength. My last yoga class was much like the first-with uncertain , shaky poses and clumsy stumbles impairing my performance. I think I just became frustrated that I seemed to be making no progress , and ultimately forced myself to accept that it just was not for me. Yet since I have excluded yoga from my life, I find that I have been really missing it lately.
My mind keeps reverting back to the summer of , a time where I became actively involved with my local studio, and yoga became a staple to my daily routine.

It was definitely one of the most enlightening periods in my life, as I was able to hear the stories of others, while reflecting upon my own. I grew to be very inspired by those around me, and started to gain more confidence within myself-as well as optimistic towards the future. Yet the best part of all?
Amidst people who were of all different ages in life and stages in yoga , I felt as if I belonged. They are everyday people just like us Well, most of them are. In fact, I even one day ran into my instructor at a Wal-Mart. Where she was shopping. For FOOD. And none of it was organic. It was a practice that was inclusive towards everyone, regardless of their flexibility or their level of expertise. Now, with this knowledge seeped into my consciousness and memory , I can only hope that I will finally gain the courage again to take out my mat and give that tricky crow pose another go.
I am just a regular every woman, who is easily amused by things and has a love for life, friends, family, and animals.
I love to find pennies on the sidewalk, although they are deemed worthless to most people, to me they are like little gifts that life offers. Finding a penny always brightens my day, but I only pick it up if it is heads facing up. If it is tails, I flip it over so someone else can find it, and hopefully have a good day.
I laugh a little too much, yet it is what I love most about myself, and it will never change. I am a lover of Chai tea, cozy cafes, and a nice plate of scrambled eggs. I am a junior in college, majoring in English Communications, and hopefully this blog will help me in getting better with writing and speaking to an audience. You are commenting using your WordPress.
