"Bend don't break"
I'm literally over the moon to have made the top 10 of the @yovadalife
200h YTT competition🙈
I am looking forward to posting the 3 main reason why I would like to be a yoga teacher this week. Then @yovadalife
will choose one of my posts along with one from each of the 10 finalist and post it on there account on Mondays the 31st of July. -
The MOST LIKED photo is the winner, so I'll need all the help I can get🙈🙏🏻 (I'm up against some very good yogi's😳) ____________________________________________
First: "Bend, don't break"
As clique as it sounds. Yoga has thought me how to bend and not break. It's thought me how to manage my stress and anxiety. I've learned to know when I need to take time out for myself and how important it is to switch off for a fews minutes a day to breathe properly. It's thought me the importance of being able to to bend but not break.
This is probably my best attempt at wheel pose so far🙌🏼 it still needs a bit of work but I never imagined I would have been able to bend so much when I started yoga.
I was asked the other day how I find the motivation to do yoga everyday. Going to bed Friday after missing yoga, I was stressed and tense, it was a busy day where I didn't have a chance to stop. I guess sometimes life just gets in the way. Not wanting to spend another day feeling like I did on Friday is my motivation to get up and do it. Even if it's not a full yoga core session everyday, it's just a matter of giving myself that time to sit on the mat, to release any tension and negativity from the day. -
In the past I let myself get so stressed that I've ended up making myself sick. I've got to the point where I don't want to let that happen any more. I'm still working on all of the above it's not something that happens over night. It a process, one of allowing yourself to bend but not get to that breaking point. I would love to do yoga teacher training so I could learn how to teach and help other people to do the same.
