Hello Flow friends,
Let's dive a little deeper today into a subject that can feel quite taboo. Yoga is a vast and deep ocean that we swim in, sometimes we can feel swamped with emotion and memories that surface when we least expect it.
You may be among the countless students that I have had the privilege to hold space for over my years as a yoga teacher, you have bounced into the yoga room, bright and bubbly ready to move your beautiful body... then all of a sudden there is a knot in your throat, and tears are flowing down your checks after the first hip opener.
"The nature of yoga is to shine the light of awareness into the darkest corners of the body"
Yoga has such profound healing potential, if we just surreneder to the process of letting go.
" The wound is the place where the light gets in"
How do we allow the process of healing to happen in our yoga practice??
My humble advice to you, is to simply acknowledge what surfaces in your yoga practice, accept what has surfaced without trying to push it away or squish it down.
Allow the wisdom of your healing to unfold, you deserve the peace that comes for letting go, ultimately this results in new space in the body, mind and spirt.
The biggest challenge is we hold onto things for too long, this pain we carry takes up so much valuable space in our lives, please let your experiences on your yoga mat be your opportunity to finally process and let go of what has been weighing you down.
Let that which you release, give you new space, and be willing to allow the next thing, and then next thing, and the next thing to arise and be processed until there is just spaciousness and freedom, yoga is a reflection of life, life is journey home my friends, so please keep your heart and mind open, let your yoga practice be a powerful part of your growth, healing and evolution.
With love and blessings, till next we meet.
