I can’t believe I actually feel that way! I’ve practiced yoga both at home and in the studio on and off for the last 5 years (very infrequently) and 3 times per week for the last 3 weeks religiously. But in all that time, even though I’d leave the mat feeling great, it was a bit of an internal struggle getting onto it. I liked the rewards, but there wasn’t a love for the practice itself.
Well, low and behold, last night as I drove my nieces back from the coast after a day of sitting in the car mostly, I was craving my mat, and my new found studio. I craved the tranquility and soft natural light of the studio and the texture of a bolster which to me is a symbol of comfort and security. My legs were tight from sitting and my lower back ached. I genuinely longed to stretch them out. Wow….to me, that’s progress!
