My first Yoga class was about 3 years back. The first lesson was kind of bad and lousy where the instructor did not bother to correct any postures or even move around the studio class. All she did was standing by the back of the class showing no interest in teaching (DUH!). That experience absolutely stopped me from going to Yoga classes (alongside with some laziness) after that first bad experience.
About a few months later I decided to give Yoga another Go and this time it was different. During that period, I was actually feeling overwhelmed with a mixture of emotions. “Set a purpose for today’s practice. Focus on today’s practice.” That statement kind of struck me and I was able to temporary put my emotions aside and fully focus on the lesson. It was a finally a break for my mind.
After the practice I felt like I was feeling so much relived even though I still felt overwhelmed but it was the better kind of emotions. Grateful was the word.
Yoga practices session was like safe house for myself, it wasn’t a avoidance from the reality. It was a process of discovering what really matter for myself. It was a dedicated time for myself. It was a self discovery journey.
Throughout the self discovery journey, I realised what was worth for myself and what was not.
I am not affected by things that does before.
I am much more contented.
