Push the challenge

I do have the habit of pushing myself too hard. Always go beyond my limits, even though I notice them. Why? Because I want to do more. I want to feel the exercise the next day and the day after that. Maybe I want to feel pain. Maybe I want to know what I can’t do. If I don’t try it, then I will never know. But when will I know it’s enough. I think never and that’s me. Every class I will reach for a new level. Every day ~ that’s how I live ~ I love to try it and experience what opportunities new challenges give me ~ Vinyasa is certainly a new challenge, I can tell you that. Not only physically, but also emotionally. So will I try again? Of course I will 🧘‍♀️💛🙏🏽~ #yoga #yogagirl #yogalife #yogalifestyle #yogachallenge #yogainspiration

Good but tough

Today I joined a Vinyasa class. It has been a few months since the last time I did Vinyasa and it was tough. Good but tough, because I noticed my body is not at its best. Never had I imagined that loss and grief could have such an impact on a body 😔. I am not sure what happened and why. Is it the grief of the persons who passed away recently or the old pain of losing my biological family when I was baby? Or both? It’s confronting but I could enjoy the class however, and that’s good. It means I am doing something that is meant for me. So I will continue. Next week will be the next vinyasa class, but I will take it slowly next. Like the teacher said, love my body 💗🙏🏽🌸~ #yoga #yogalifestyle #yogabeginner #yogalife #yogavinyasa #vinyasa #grief #griefjourney #healing #healingjourney #loss #adoption #adoptionjourney

My Guide to Yoga

Next to the physical exercises, I am also reading about yoga. Last week I finally finished The Tree of Yoga. It took me a long time and I noticed you need to be ready to read the book. It seemed I was ready enough, but I will repeat reading this book until I fully understand it. To integrate the philosophy of yoga, my spirit needs to be ready. Although I could understand it, I am not able to live according these principles. That’s why this book will be one of my guides ~ to guide through this new path of yoga and soul searching ~ 📖 🧘‍♀️🌸~ #yoga #yogalifestyle #yogalife #yogareading #yogabook #treeofyoga #iyengaryoga

After yoga ramen

A good meal after an intensive hatha yoga class on a warm sunny Saturday. I didn’t sleep very well last night and I was not sure whether yoga would be a wise thing to do. I went anyway and it’s good that I did. These hatha yoga classes always bring me back, thanks to the breathing exercises, the asanas and the wisdom of the yoga teacher. So now I will enjoy my self made ramen soup. Happy Saturday everyone 💛🌷🧘‍♀️~ #yoga #yogalifestyle #yogalife #yogagirl #hathayoga #ramennoodles #ramen #postyogameal #healthyfood #healthy Image by Verawaty
