This year I am focusing on trying to realign myself and my priorities. I started to realize when certain things in my life that I can control are aligned or in order, the things I would like to control will most likely align as well. So I started going to yoga 2 or 3 times a week. I originally started going to yoga because I needed something that would help me de-stress. I didn't realize that I would learn so much about myself and find a lot of parallels with practicing yoga and life.
In class they remind us that we are there for a reason. We are there to help heal ourselves from within and to allow ourselves to go through the journey. Everybody's journey is so different. There are good days and bad days. Days when I feel like I can go in there and hit every posture perfectly and there are days when I go in and feel like it's a struggle to even walk through the door. All in all it has truly been a journey. I've seen my anxiety lessen and I've seen a difference in how I handle specific situations. I'm not a calm person by nature so 90 minutes 2 or 3 times a week really gives me a space to focus and allow myself to relax.
