Recently I’ve started to finally feel courageous enough to do some of the things I had secretly dreamed about, but had somewhere in my past, decided were not in my realm of possibility. One of those things was riding a motorbike, and woot woo! I’m doing it!
Another of those things was becoming a yoga teacher. Well, as if I could do that, right? you’ve seen those people, the women all pretty and long and toned, the men all muscly and healthy. Of course, they all mediated and spend hours a day training their bodies and doing crazy disciplined things that make them way more awesome than I could ever expect to be….. Hmmm. Well – Somewhere I reality checked myself, realised that this was all cruddy stories I had made up myself. Then I considered what yoga really is, what it is for me and what it has brought to my life since I started practicing 16 years ago. So, I found the yoga training that I felt I fit in with and started on this new adventure.
Its turned out to be way more challenging and confronting than I thought it was going to be. In the posts below, I’m keeping my ‘yoga journal’. I want to share my journey with you so that you might get something from it, I also want to share it with you so that you can share your experience and ideas with me. I want to hear about your journey too, whether you are along time teacher, a brand new beginner student or a lifetime practitioner.
