This week I’ve gone back to my roots and connected again with why I started yoga in the first place. I’ve noticed a big shift in me. Partly this is due to a mentoring session that I had during the week. It was my first mentoring session I ever had (this is slightly different to coaching) and it seems to have gotten me back into my heart and emotions. That session had a big impact on me, it has connected me to myself again.
Since then I’ve written numerous blog posts and my creativity just seems to flow. I can’t pinpoint what it was but it might have been because For the first time in a while I spoke to someone that is completely out of my life why I started practising yoga and how it helped me through pain and grief. Sometimes I like to just push those emotions away as they are still hurting, even after 6 years. But I’ve learnt that it’s important to connect to those emotions, it’s part of me and it’s why I started this journey I’m currently on. I also want to teach more specialised classes and posts, aimed for people who are dealing with grief and in general need some healing.
Teaching my classes on Saturday, felt great. I feel like I’m finding my authentic voice as a teacher. As a student, I know what I want and what I don’t, as a teacher, I’m still getting to know those things and connecting to myself helps me finding my voice. My daily meditation practice is also helping me a lot. I’m currently on a 12 days strike and counting. 🙂 (If you are stuck on meditations, here are some meditations for you to listen to)
Saturday afternoon I walked the dog and boy, was I struggling with the wind and the umbrella. I considered just giving the umbrella a miss but didn’t wanna get drenched again, so I put up with the wind. Afterwards, we went to the pub to get some dinner and then I went home to chill. It’s important to take time out for yourself and give your body and mind some well-needed rest.
Until next week,
