Himalayan salt lamp yoga

I always get great satisfaction when I get up early for my own yoga practice. This mornings practise was so beautiful & very energising! 
Absolutely loving my Himalayan crystal salt rock candle holder from my gorgeous sister Sarah Charlesworth for my birthday! Thank you, the energy from it is so wonderful!

Yoga workshop #2

Excited & anxious all at the same time! This morning I am off to my 2nd Yoga workshop, this time it’s with another of my beautiful Yoga teachers, Denise – @smallworldyogi! 
I really am amazing myself with how far I’ve come on this journey, not just my Yoga journey but my life journey! Thanks to my yoga I am more open to learning new things about myself, my confidence to travel further and go to new places on my own has to be one of the most noticeable things for me! I would never have even dreamt of doing this a year ago! 
From reading that, you might be wondering “travel further, where is she going for this workshop?”

Well, its only just over 6 miles away but its an area I’m not used to driving to and last time me & my yoga bestie attempted to go to Denise’s class, we got lost! 

So, because of that, and because I’ll be on my own, I’ve given myself added pressure and anxiety where it isn’t needed! 

I could ask for my DebbieRahRah to take me but this is something I have to do and I can do it!

Frustration overload continued…

​This may seem a contradiction to last nights post but, it has been planned for a while, I’m off to a new (to me) yoga class with my yoga bestie! 

I won’t stop my yoga practice, I just won’t be attending classes for a while (after today!)

This means I’ll have to mentally work harder to make sure I do continue with my own practice! I’m sure you can imagine, how much easier it is to sit on the sofa, rather than rolling out your mat! 

I’m not quitting, its not my nature, I’m just listening to my body and preserving my emotional state! 

MS anxiety & depression is so hard to stay on top of!

If you could write to yourself from the future, what would you say?

And what a phenomenal journey it is! Loving every step, wobble, hobble and roll of it! 
Its strange how things work out, at the time of writing this post 3 years ago, I had no idea how amazing my life was going to be! 
I would never have believed you if you told me all the incredible things that I have had the pleasure to be involved in! 
I wouldn’t have believed you if you told me I would be extremely good friends with Gold winning Paralympian Stephanie Millward  and I wouldn’t believe u if u told me I was also fantastic friends with the truly inspirational Trishna Gauri

In fact, your friends with some absolutely freaking awesome people, some you’ve known all your life, some that feel like you’ve known all your life & some your still getting to know! 

Vix, your network of friends are incredible!
And if you think I’d have believed that I would be working together with one of my best friends who just happens to be my Pilates instructor, yeah, 2014 Vix, in about a years time you start Kate King Pilates classes, and your passion is born! 
You then, two years later help said Pilates instructor, who by the way becomes a massive inspiration, to build her business and I do believe you appear to be quite successful at it! 

Oh and 2014 Vix, would you believe this, you start a Pilates teaching course! Not with the intention of teaching, but just because you want to! 
Oh and you also fall in love with Yoga as well!

Thanks to your beautiful yoga teacher with the amazing energy
Yeah, just think about that!

All the Yoga highs!

​So this happened during my 1-1 yoga today!

Today’s session was all about love, self love and appreciation in fact! 

This is what happens when you have such a wonderful Yoga teacher who you feel so connected to! Thanks to her as well for putting me in contact with Melissa Wells!
I feel so honoured that the universe heard me on one of those many days, when I was so low, from the beging of my MS diagnosis 7 years ago and Fibromyalgia 6 years ago to when I was given Louise’s name in March 2016!
I was so desperate to stop hating myself for gaining weight because of my mobility issues, not because of anything I could have prevented. 

I needed a change. Something had to give, so I put it out there, I had always felt the calling for Yoga, knowing how open I am to spiritual insight, I knew I was on the right path.
I think it could have only been my third 1-1 with Lou when I started to open up to her about what I had only at the time, recently discovered about myself, I had an eating disorder. 

She instantly told me about Mel & The Goddess Revolution, which upon hearing about it, I instantly pre-ordered the book! 

And I’ve never looked back since! 
This picture makes me so happy!

What you cant see is my beaming yoga high smile during, after and every time I look at it!

What no one saw and very rarely sees (that’s called being an MS warrior, there’s a lot of us! πŸ‘) was the major energy crash afterwards and the muscle soreness!

You know what though, it was totally worth it! The whole session was!
Please always remember, anything is possible! πŸ™πŸ’š
