I’ve noticed that I have been talking a lot more of the “oven” aka fertility and less of the OM aka the yoga. So today=my OM
Yoga has been a journey for me. On my mat I have encountered many of the same issues I struggle with off the mat. You know, the usuals: self doubt, anxiety, physical pain and mental exhaustion, comparisons to others, etc, etc. Every time I practice I come face to face with one of these gems and try to battle it. It’s still a work on progress.
Lately my battle, both on and off the mat, has been with avoidance. I hurt myself in a class a few months back and it’s been hard to get back in the swing of it. I don’t want to injure myself again or put anymore strain on my feeble wrists🤕, so that leads to me not practiniging yoga or being late, so I just have to skip the class. I know what I need to do and that is to find my middle ground-to find my edge and pull back just a bit. This is tough for me-I’m either all in or not in at all. If you are a Franklin Covey person, I am all zoned 1 and 4. I’m working on it….
Today I was late to get ready for a hot yoga class, which made me late to class (I didn’t even go in-my anxiety does not like walking in late), so I didn’t go. Le sigh. But I decided to practice at home. I rolled out my yoga mat, opened our porch door, put on my Agnes and Julia Stone Pandora station and I did my thing.
It flowed. And I thought. I should do this more often!
