Welcome to the fourth edition of our live yoga class. What I have learned throughout this quarantine process, through self reflection and the abundance of time I have to rediscover myself, is that the thing that I want most for myself is to be myself, in everything I do. I want to be myself, truly, at all times and not try to put on a smiley show or be afraid to make mistakes. I want to accept myself just as I am and know that I am enough.
When I am afraid to be completely myself, I am giving myself so much pressure to be perfect, and I’m really, really not perfect. But guess what, I like myself anyway, so it’s cool! I like that I say silly things and sometimes even the wrong thing. That’s what makes me human.
So often we have desires and make goals when they don’t go to plan would put a tremendous amount of guilt on our shoulders. Meanwhile the Universe has been telling us for years to go with the flow, that nothing is perfect. Yet we still try to control results.
Don’t ya hate putting all that pressure on yourself.
In all honesty the world and the humans of this planet accept us just as we are, imperfections and all. I learned that from my own experience of teaching yoga day after day. My friendly yoga student friends would constantly accept me for my imperfections and love me because I wasn’t making them be perfect.
Yoga is a self study, and individual practice guided by the energy that is cultivated by you and supported by the people around you. Coming to a yoga class you should feel the support of all the people around you, the support to make mistakes, to grow, to achieve, to overcome.
During this quarantine process, make room to rediscover yourself. Take moments to see how your thoughts are working. What are the negative things you might be telling yourself? What are things you want to do but are not doing? What is it that you need to accept or let go of? What brings you joy?
We will talk more analyzing our own thoughts in a future post.
Let’s do this heart opening yoga practice together. It was previously recorded live and I enjoyed being completely myself during it! Judgement free. I hope you find it fun! I hope that it makes your body feel good and your mind feel focused and calm. Let me know what you think! It’s about an hour, but with many resting poses in between revitalizing yoga sequences.
Leave a comment to let us know what you think!
Namaste Beautiful Friends!
