I remember my first time attending a yoga class. Actually, I remember the first few times quite well. It felt awkward, I had no idea what I was doing, I was huffing and puffing, looking around puzzled when everyone looked so zen.
At the end of each of these first sessions, I was exhausted, slightly disappointed and bemused. Do you want to know what did the trick? My curiosity. Yes, I was curious, curious to find out what that 'yoga' thing was, how it was done, where it came from, what were the benefits and what made it so popular.
I don't have all the answers even now and I don't think anybody does. But every time I went back for another yoga practice, I learned something new about yoga, I learned something new about myself and how to use it. So I insisted and I kept going back savouring every session as I was allowing time to discover more about myself and how I felt.
In another post I will let you know who that teacher was that made me fall in love with yoga so watch this space. I wish you all a wonderful Sunday and an even better week!
