A little hesitant to use this quote because but it definitely is a wise truth.
I have never thought about taking up yoga till my best friend invited me to a trial class class about 2 years ago. It started out as a way to get some exercise, but it has turned out to be so much more.
During my practice, there were so many pose I wanted to achieve. But this is also the reason why it stopped me from practicing for some time. I was discouraged when I was unable to to achieve and I actually gave up out of frustration. I started back on mat during circuit breaker where virtual classes were introduced and that was when I realized i missed those practicing and I want it back.
And this time round, my goal is to become more connected to myself and to resist focusing on the outcome but to embrace both my strengths and weaknesses. One way I realized is to set an intention before the the class. An intention that allow me to focus on during the practice and when I step off the mat.
