In the spirit of empowerment and self-healing I participated in a Hatha yoga class last night. The room was packed with eclectic community members of LA Fitness most of whom attend the class on a regular basis. The instructor was engaging, funny, kind, and motivating. As a fitness instructor myself with some experience engaging in yoga, I felt comfortable yet challenged attempting the various yoga poses during the class. I cherished each moment during class when a muscle would reach out and say “here I am!” My relationship with deep breathing is a mixed one; often resulting in feelings of significant anxiety. However, during the yoga class I noticed though I was breathing deeply I was not experiencing anxiety. It seems that for me the combination of deep breathing with movement was comforting. I find that quite intriguing. As I explore healing modalities and build a safe internal haven for my soul, I will be exploring a few different types of yoga over the next few weeks and sharing my experiences with you.
Please share with yourself and perhaps with your kindred Neonatal Womb Warriors your secrets for bringing a full and integrated soul along for the ride!
