Unbelievably it’s been 9 months since I’ve started my yoga journey. To say it’s changed me physically, emotionally and mentally seems kinda cliché, but it’s true. There really is no other way to describe it other than life changing. I practice everyday, and like running, some days are harder than others, but it doesn’t matter because I just love doing it. Even when I feel like I suck. Blogging about the whole experience has given me a way to document my growth, and of course accountability.
I remember when I first tried bakasana, and just collapsed onto my face lying there thinking what the hell am I doing ??! I’m soooo weak!! But I put all that ego aside and just tried, and I tried all the time, and I’d meditate and breathe and let go (try to at least) , and pretty soon, there was lift off little by little. And while the path to full bakasana and full flying pigeon is still ahead of me and full of struggles, I know I’ll get there. It’s all in the practice.
PS that black fluffy mound under my head is Marina. Talk about a good reason to not let yourself fall forward, dog squishing is not an option.
