Yoga purists, LOOK AWAY!!
I did my very first power flow class, outside, in a parking lot with the likes of Bone Thugs and Harmony, Snoop Dog, Eminem, etc. playing as I breathed and flowed!
I wasn’t sure how this was going to go. I wasn’t in the comfort of my little studio surrounded by teachers I know and people that I see weekly. I took a chance to put my beginner yoga behind out there, in public, in front of people! I didn’t even bring a friend for support.
I did it. I feel so blessed by the solid foundation that I have been given to continue to build upon. I knew flows, I knew poses…hell there were even a few in there that I was like “um, what?!” but I breathed it out and I made it happen. I did forget my breath a few times. It started warming up, the sun was beaming down and the flow was intense. I had to take a couple of child’s poses, but jumped right back in the mix.
I did a new pose and I believe it was called plow asana? You stand on one leg, same arm up and you grab the other foot and lean forward. Wait, that’s a bow. BOW ASANA!!! I swear I’ll learn these names eventually.
I am proud of myself for stepping outside of my box and trying a new thing outside of my comfort zone. That is a huge part of my journey. Doing something that I have to work hard for and pushing the boundaries.
Speaking of stepping outside of my box, I have now started in IG page to document my journey and progress. I’m not really sharing it with anyone, if people find me, they can follow, I don’t really mind, this one is for me!
Lastly, doing all of these things remind me that I have no tribe in this journey. I don’t really have anyone to go to these random events with or call when I have a question about a pose or whatever. As I am going through this, I have decided to put it out into the universe for a yoga friend! Now accepting applications…lol.
