I am trying to shift the focus of my Yoga practice.
For a long time it was all about in fact competing with myself:
“Better, stronger, more!”
And nothing wrong with that per se, but for me it just reinforced feelings of not being enough and keeping me in doing instead of being mode.
Now I consciously set an intention of making my practice a nurturing one.
Which doesn’t mean I can’t engage in challenging poses, but doing so while listening to myself and resting in child’s pose when I need to instead of pushing through which is an all too familiar pattern in my everyday life.
Instead practising being gentler with myself and attuning to my needs.
What I am grateful for today:
Felt especially grateful for the sunshine today, that allowed me to sit outside, and soak up the warmth while enjoying my latte and a croissant (and yes, you can’t be gluten-free, super healthy all the time, as long as you eat it mindfully and with JOY :), which I did)
