Alarm set for my self practice yoga in the morning, haven’t done any thing for a while. Just haven’t had the mojo for it, listening to my body, and she’s telling me she’s ready for the mat tomorrow. That’s if she wakes up in time! Maybe, maybe not, either way is good!!
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!
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! 👏) 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! 🙏💚
Productive day! 2 loads of washing done and dried, fell asleep this afternoon and then dinner cooked ready to be re-heated and eaten after Yoga!
Not beating myself up about the unplanned sleep, getting better at allowing myself the rest when I need it!
Seriously looking forward to Yoga tonight with @louiseavilesyoga
Each of my Yoga practises seems to bring me a new lesson!
Contrary to belief, Yoga isn’t all about looking amazing in poses or how long you can hold a headstand for. Nope, its what you learn about yourself whilst doing it and believe me, I’m learning a heck of a lot!
It really is magic!
Remember… 🐴➡💫yoga💫➡🦄 But also, not every practise makes you feel amazing, some can be very draining, like today!
Trust the journey! Its not all black & white! Believe in yourself!
