Yoga comes to all of us at different times in our lives. I found yoga when I moved to a new city, I couldn't do my normal activities ( I was a horse rider and had lost my normal access to that) I needed to move my body. My anxiety has always been an issue but I had found it creeping in more and more. When I landed in my first class I knew it would be in my life forever... as much as I disliked it. I was the most fidgety and flighty yogi in there (or at least thats how I felt) my mind raced (and still does) in savasana, I have injuries that prevent me from doing the flashy poses and it drives me bananas, I thought I couldn't be a teacher because I cant do a handstand or most arm balances. But then someone showed up and shoved me in a YTT, it was so fast I didn't realize what I had got my self into... Im so glad I didn't have time to think because it has been one of the greatest gifts. I love teaching yoga, I love moving people emotionally and physically and giving them permission to do their own work. Were all here to see our selves, we use lifes distractions to get out of that work, but its always there and we cant run or hide from ourselves (at least not very successfully). Life is beautiful and uncomfortable and yoga really gets into the nooks and crannies of our minds and bodies.
The beautiful thing about it is there is never a wrong time, it will always be there, it is accessible to any body, and age, and to any level of movement you may have. Although the classes I offer online are more geared toward people with a certain level of mobility, they can be modified and adjusted to suite any ones needs.
Thats what I love so much, even stopping and noticing your own breath is yoga. So if you could stop and take 5 slow deep breaths, see how many times your mind trys to tell you to shift and move, to stop, to go fast or slower... Can you consciously breath in and out, let your self just feel the breath, notice that just by noticing it slows, steadies and you feel this whole sense of calm move through you.
We are all able to do yoga. Wont you join me?
