It has been a long time since I have been on my mat. Having a baby and recovering have kept me away, this week was the first time I unrolled my mat and attempted at some sort of practice. I must say that I was half expecting to just get on there and have things be as they were before, but that is far from what my experience had in store. It was very humbling to arrive at a place I haven't been in a long time, back to the beginning.
Every movement created a sensation that I have long forgotten, sensations that you feel when you are just discovering and stepping into your practice.
I know this is going to be a long and slow journey back, and I am actually looking forward to feeling the newness and discovering these postures all over again, but this time with such different eyes. I will be treating the practice like it was my baby, attentively with care from a place of nurturing and love.
I am planning on taking the next 2 months of finding out how my body moves now, slowly building strength, and using the practice to heal. I am excited about how this could potentially change my teaching with a greater understanding from this side of things.
I am excited to say that my first classes back teaching will be in the New Year, Tuesday January 5th and Thursday the 7th 9:30 - 10:45am at Purusha Yoga. Slowly making the transition back into teaching I will hold these classes for a bit and gradually add more in as it fits.
