When yoga came to me almost 20 years ago I resisted. I pushed it away. It was too slow, and I got bored. My body couldn't keep up with my mind--which was too fast, spinning in thought. I just "didn't get it".
But what you resist will persist.
And so, yoga kept coming back into my life one way or another. When I struggled with it the most, that's when it became my healer. Somehow I passed this threshold and surrendered to finally going on the journey within that yoga inevitably takes you on.
And so now, it's my saving grace, my cornerstone of calm, ease and joy.
Yoga has never let me down. Ever.
It has never judged me.
It has never abandoned me.
It has held me through pain and brought me back to life when I was certain it would only be darkness.
And it was never just the poses, the movement.
It was everything underneath that builds the foundation of this ancient system.
If you're willing to listen, it speaks.
It tells you all that you need is within.
The biggest resistance people have with yoga is this idea they are not physically "ready" or "able" to do it. But this is the best time to explore it. This is where you can push your own mindset, your own habit of thought and start to fully expand out.
This is your chance to see what you are actually capable of.
The light and peace we seek is within. Always.
All we get to do is start the journey of unfolding into this space.
Curious what this journey within could look like? Ready to step into a new space and fully embrace more peace, calm and joy? Let's connect. Book your free 30min support session.
