SOUND ON for breath 💨
It feels so good to start feeling glimpses of inspiration arrive back to my (physical) practice again.
But, I wouldn’t be able to do it alone.
Sure, I have a devoted self practice.
And I firmly believe that establishing (and maintaining) a strong self practice is the vessel that allows me to teach authentically from my own experiences on my mat, rather than trying to embody someone else’s.
However, I don’t think it will matter how long I’ve been practicing nor teaching- there will still continue to be times where I feel a little stuck when it comes to movement.
Meaning, I start feeling repetitive.
I also tend to stick to my favorite postures & transitions, rather than challenge myself to visit those shapes which I’d rather avoid.
All of these reasons are why I find it important (for me, at least), to find a studio & teacher(s) in my community.
Keep in mind, this isn’t always possible with some of the places where I travel to (which is when I use @Alo.moves
the most). But, when I am staying in an area with a yoga community- I will absolutely gravitate towards it, rather than sticking solely to my self practice.
Since I’m not a devout follower of any one lineage- I’m pretty much always up for trying any style of class.
Because there’s always, ALWAYS something to be learnt during that time on the mat- even if the particular style doesn’t really resonate.
In fact, some of my least favorite classes have helped to unglue me the most.
I suppose it’s just about the perspective through which we choose to observe our experience that makes all the difference, right?
Thanks to an awesome sunrise session at @Twistingpeacockyoga
- I’m feeling inspired, strong & grateful as hell.
These are the lenses through which I’ll do my best to experience the rest of the day ☀️🌝 #GLOWyogafam
