Thanks for all the sweet comments about our fermentedsocca , as you can tell we love playing around with different versions.
Yesterday Lori and I did a hot yoga class, it is becoming apart of our Sunday routine.
I still consider myself new to yoga. I am not the best one in the class. I am not very flexible. I am still gaining strength. Finding my balance.
My body felt wonderful, moving, stretching and all, but it was my mind. My mind was everywhere. I had a real hard time focusing on me.
On my body. My movement. My breathe.
As the class was coming to an end, we did some wheels (backbends) and I noticed myself getting emotional. I know heart opening exercises can stir up emotions, and yesterday it did! I kept comparing myself to others in the class. I was thinking..why I can’t do that pose, why can’t I deepen that stretch, etc.
I tried to respect it. Honor my feelings. But to be honest I kept saying, “Michelle, focus, stop worrying, stop putting pressure on yourself. Just be.”
I did it. I stuck with it. I am facing my emotions on the mat. I am doing it for me. Yoga is practice…so practice I will continue to do. I know each yoga practice will be a different experience both physically and emotionally which will only help me get stronger
After an intense and emotional yoga I enjoyed an unique smoothie.
Parsley, Ormus green powder, coconut milk, pumpkin, irish moss, stevia and carob.
My first time having pumpkin in a smoothie, it was pretty good. A different kind of good.
Twins Question: Have you had an emotional yoga before? If you do not practice yoga, do you want to? What is holding you back?
I have always loved yoga. Loved how it makes me become more aware. Even with my personal fears of failure, when I am on the mat, I do feel strong. And one day I will be able to do a headstand I look forward to that day! Till then I will keep on practicing my practice of yoga. And thanks to my dear friend Gillian who reminds me to just be me , stop comparing and love every moment of my life without guilt! Thanks girl!
