Oups, a post that got stuck in the summer inbox, posting it anyways.
After a summer full of “on/off yoga” (1 week full on followed by 1 week of nada), I’m trying to build consistency again in routines and my yoga practice.
What happens when you’ve lived in the yoga mecca and then have to create a new “yoga life”?
What about life changes and coming back to where you came from? This week had it all.
Getting back to your regular practice is easier said than done. Especially if you had a very regular practice before. Summer is here and it’s been hard to balance travels, summer, apero drinks and family.
The worse is that once you skip 3 days it’s so easy to extend it to 4, 5, and 6. Still, you feel that something is missing.
Our monkey minds make it so easy to come up with all kinds of excuses and makes us think they are valid. From one chapter in life to the next. Sometimes we do have those big changes in life where you just feel empty and not sure how to continue or react.
This week, it’s been like a flipped coin. From one extreme to the other and it makes me think how much we actually can affect our bodies and minds.
I’ve been feeling a bit down lately, anxious, insomnia with lots of thoughts on life. Together with yoga limbo it wasnt a good combo. After a week I decided to get myself together and go to yoga even though I didn’t really feel like it.
Boom, not sure what happened, but it’s like at least half of those unsettled thoughts immediately dissapeared. Sleep came back, an inner calm came back and some more of that self confidence trusting that eventually everything will be fine.
Also went to see wonderwoman, great up boosting film which for once has a strong female character.
Grateful for yoga!
