Its safe to say that exercise has never been my favourite thing, I hate going to the gym, going running and playing most team sports but I put up with it so I can stay in shape, so when I found yoga it changed my life.
I first found yoga when I was 13 and was recovering from a knee injury so couldn’t play sport and I fell in love with it after the first session. During that first year I did yoga 2-3 times a week at school and I then began practising yoga more and more over the next few years. I loved it! I paired my yoga with meditation and soon found that I was much stable and happy because I finally had something channel all my energy and emotions into. I would do some sun salutations first things every morning and then a longer session in the afternoon/evening. By the time I was 16 I was doing yoga very day without fail.
However in this last year my yoga has been somewhat forgotten, with all the stresses of college and exams I just haven’t had enough time to do it, and I’ve definitely been feeling the consequences of that not only physically but also mentally. So over the last two months when I’ve been off college for the summer Ive been trying to get back into it.
I’ve now been doing it consistently again for a few weeks and I’ve never felt so good! Im happy and calm and centred and my body is feeling so supple and free! I’ve missed it so much!
I’m taking it slowly and know I’m nowhere near as good as I once was, but non of that is important to me because I know that I’ll eventually build up my body to be as strong as it used to be ❤
I may do some very simple yoga tutorials if people are interested? Send me a message if this is something that would interest you!
