Today in class I learned that sometimes you have to put yourself in that aggravating, uncomfortable situation, so that we can grow and learn more about ourselves. This also applies to LIFE. We’re not always going to be in a perfectly happy situation, I’m sure we all wish that right? I was getting frustrated in class today, because I was having a difficult time getting a pose. Of course my teacher noticed and she then says in the most perfect moment, “it is okay to feel frustrated because you are not where you want to be, but if you keep working towards that goal, you’ll get it—-trust me I know what that feels like.” She also said we have to find bliss where ever we are. I like that word, bliss. It is not a word I hear too often but I enjoyed trying to find bliss in class today.
One last thought I wanted to share with you all, my teacher, Hagar, encouraged me to take her 4-week extensive course for yoga. Especially after I told her I would like to be a yoga instructor, she felt this was perfect for me. I’m excited! I’m really taking my yoga practice to the next level and I cannot wait to see where it leads me. :)
