TAKING A NEXT STEP

Hi guys, it’s me again . so as you guys knew that I am a mother of 3 kids, a housewife . I wanted to had kids in a young age and it always in mine mind since I was little . 

So I didn’t went to university to study after my high school. I met my husband and we had kids after that not so long. And now I’m a mother of 3.

So in my life or most of woman life ,  their goals in life always have Career and built a Family.

And so for me as well, those 2 goals are very important with me. I spending almost 5 year’s to staying home to have kids and  take care of my family. Since the kids going to school one by one, I started to have more time for myself . and I want to learn something, find something that can suit myself , a job that I can enjoy, that I still have time to spend with my family, take care of my kids, or be there for them when they need me anytime. Doing something that make me happy, heathy and the most important thing is NO STRESS .

I talked to my friends ,to my husband about it, and they asked me what do I like , what is make you happy , and what would make me want to do it everyday, everywhere, anytime ???

And I realize that doing YOGA is the only things that I enjoy and fit with all the condition that I wanted.

I had been doing yoga so much ,since got my baby and there are so many benefit from yoga that I find for myself. I do it when I need to release all the tired , the stresses , a place that I can have a peace moment just for myself. For my physical and metal body.

So, I took the next step and registered for 200hr teacher training . It was perhaps the hardest, most rewarding, time of my practice ,all the new vocabularies I need to understand . all the theory that I need to able to understand in English , and the Sanskrit that I need to remember. As a housewife with 3 young kids was very tough for me, sometime I just wanted to give up, I just wanted to sleep all day, and during practice I would actually utter the words “I’ll quit “ , But then I tried to be strong, I push myself more to do it. Tried harder to make my postures right. To lift my whole body up. which is I would never though that I can do that.

I still have one more week to finished my course , but I can feel a big different my mind Physical , mental and Spiritual . I had learn so much from my teacher. I’m get to know more and deeper about yoga, the more I know about it ,the more I’m falling love with it. And I feel I’M NICER AFTER YOGA .

YOGA AND POSTPARTUM

After I gave birth my 2 boys , I started to feel very sad about my body. I thought that my belly would be back to normal after the baby came out. But then it was not like what I expected . All the fat is still staying there started from 9 months I been eating non heathy food . it had been build up everyday . I used to be obsessed with my body. I wanted to have the body of a ballet dancer — not an inch of fat, ethereal, and skinny, with lots of bones showing. I starved myself and did everything I could to lose weight. 

Then I started to go back to yoga everyday to help me get back to my body and also helped to bring me out of my worries ,stressful mind and enjoy life with my family.

Yoga taught me to rethink how I approach what healthiness means, by helping me understand what true strength really means. Indeed, there is an intricate and sublime connection between strength and vulnerability .

After practicing yoga for a while , my body did not let me down after all, it had loved me back and supported me in my recovery .But this experience has been beyond physical, because yoga is also such a spiritual practice. I continue to learn to forgive the failure of plans, people, and processes. I learn to loved myself more ,enjoying my life with people around me . And the most important one is accepting myself as who I am .

MY FIRST EXPERIENCE ABOUT YOGA

When I first started yoga at 18 year’s old , I didn’t know anything about yoga, and also my physical body never been doing any work out regularly .

I stepped into a yoga class for intermediate yogis level , and I don’t even knew it was for people been practicing very often or many years. I just chose the class that fitted my time.

Dudes , yoga is totally a work- out . I didn’t really consider the expectations I had for yoga, but falling over because I couldn’t hold a pose as long as everyone else was definitely not one of them. I can certainly see how yoga can tone your body. If you happened to be like me and exercise about one a year, then it might be difficult for you too. 

But please don’t let it stop you ! One of the things I loved most about the class was that it was very focused on the fact that “ you’re exactly where you need to be’’. So , if you can’t hit the pose the teacher teaching you can also do an easier version ,it’s all good.

You’ll make it happen when you’re ready. 

It’s took me a few years later to bring yoga to my daily life. And from that I understand yoga is more than the poses, it’s the state of mind, learning to breathe , learning to be still, learning to be flexibility and strength .i

Yoga has never been just about loving your body. It’s learning to acceptance of body ,mind and soul .We all have issues that we struggle with self- acceptance . when we learn to see others as equal , we learn to love ourselves .

HOW YOGA HELP ME WENT THROUGH PREGNANCY

Hello everyone ,my name is Van . I am a mother of 3 beautiful kids , I had all my kids very cloes to each other , so almost every year I’m was carried a baby inside my belly .

And from being pregnant I get to know yoga and started to love yoga from there. During the first few months of my pregnancy ,I was plagued with morning sickness. I would stay in bed for few hours on end only to get up for a few moment to eat or walk outside . Yoga have been a lifesaver in my life in many ways . I started to took a few yoga classes per week, just to practice my physical body to keep my body strong and heathy . Yoga gives me quiet time to heal my body.in healing my body, I heal my soul, which heal my mind , which helps how I mother, which helps my marriage .

I still remember being in my 3rdhours of contraction , the breathing was helping me so much to went through the pain . And yoga breathing was  key in focusing my pushing as he was being turned . I took a cleaning breath , and then a deep breath , as my baby came right out and was put on my chest .

He was so beautiful ,and those tears were streaming down on my face, I knew I would never forget those deep breath coming from so deep in my body and soul as I pushed with all my strength to bring a new life to my family , to the world .
