So why don’t you ever blog about yoga anymore, my critical part says???
Here’s what’s going on with the whole yoga thing….
I started doing yoga about 8 years ago while I was going through a period of depression after losing 60 pounds. I really flirted with yoga. I’d attend hard core for about 3 months, and not go for about 9 months. This pattern continued for many years.
Then about 2 years ago, I really wanted to commit to going to yoga on regular basis. I struggled, though because since going to yoga the first time, I had gained about 75 pounds. My body was different. Yoga was hard and not comfortable. I started taking private lessons to find out how I could modify and adjust the poses for my body.
I used these amazing resources:
I started going to yoga for about 3 times a week for over a year. I found a teacher I loved, even though I was triggered from time to time when various teachers would project their own bad body thoughts on to me.
Then the last 6 months, I’ve drifted a bit. I still go to yoga at least once a week. But, things are different. I’ve started practicing with a new teacher, so maybe that will inspire me.
From time to time I think about adding more yoga in, but now that I am exercising regularly (2 years ago I was not), it’s hard to add more yoga into my schedule.
I am not interested in beginning a home practice. I love the sense of community or kula that vibrates when I am in a class.
So, yeah… my relationship with yoga evolves & changes… as do most of the relationships in my life!
