When I started with my training plan, yoga wasn’t exactly my strong point. I couldn’t flow, I couldn’t even sustain a pose, I never felt like I was doing anything at all. I never felt like I “worked out”. My coach asked to believe in the practice and to give it my best. And, I continued to try. It’s been about a year now that I started this journey and things have changed so much. Just this week, I was able to keep up with the instructor on 2 full sessions. Flowing with them, and my breath. I was able to hold my poses. I was able to breathe deep. I was able to do everything that I thought was hard. I’m able to truly feel the asana inside of me.
Today, I went from a fold to a tree pose and I just had this burst of gratitude in me. As if, it finally clicked. I’ve come a long way in this journey of the mind and the body. And today I feel proud of it. The path ahead doesn’t scare me anymore, I know that if I put my effort into it and show up to my mat, my body will listen. It will move, it will flow.
I’m so tremendously excited for what lies ahead. It’s been such a humbling journey within. And I owe it all to discipline, effort, trust of my coach and the space around me that allowed me to fail.
