The exhaustion of stress

I can’t believe what stress and exhaustion can do to the body. Especially my left side won’t cooperate like want to. It needs more stretching and balance is worse. I hope it goes away soon. Perhaps I need to attend the yin yoga classes again to create more peace everywhere. Not it was like that before. I thing what wasn’t good, is worse now. I guess that’s the state I am in. It also means I need holiday, that will be soon. In the meantime I should do my exercises more and not expect to much. Just being there, feel the postures and move my body like it needs to. Feeling is essential and I try to do so ~ 🧘‍♀️🌸💎~ #yoga #yogagirl #yogalife #stress #healing #feelings #feeling #stressed #yogabody #yogaworld #yogalove Advertisements

Need a moment

A yoga holiday again. Or calling myself sick. There are many reasons for my free schedule this week. After a turbulent month, I shouldn’t feel guilty. But I do. I even didn’t practice at home. My body is stressed at the moment. Hopefully tomorrow or next weekend I will be able to do some yin yoga and next week it’s yoga as usual ~ 🙏🏽🧘‍♀️🌸~ #yoga #yogadaily #yogalifestyle #yogainspiration #healingjourney #yogatransformation #yogabeginner #yogastudent #yogaathome #yogabreak #yogabalance #yogabreathing

Without filter

This morning I woke up with a terrible weird headache. However I needed some yoga so I tried some exercises. It’s a warm day in the Netherlands, hence the comfortable clothing. Regarding my headache, I am not sure what it is. I have some migraines from time to time. Perhaps the stress lately is beginning to show. It probably is, but I can’t control what’s happening with the people around me. Somehow I should control how I cope with it myself. I haven’t found the best way yet. I am born without a filter. Everything goes straight through me and sometimes my heart. I am not sure if it’s something I want to change. It also keeps me aware of everyone around me that I love. With yoga I hope to find a way to be involved with my loved ones, but also protects myself. It’s not easy to find, but I’ll keep searching and exploring. ~ 🧘‍♀️💗🌸~ #yogadaily #yogalifestyle #yogainspiration #healingjourney #yoga #yogagirl #control #yogalife #yogamorning

Heavy on my mind

There are days it’s difficult to find the motivation from within. This week I have those kind of days and I am not feeling well, physically and mentally. However, yesterday I went to my hatha class, knowing it’s my way to recovery. Of course I joined the hatha class even though my mind and breathing didn’t collaborate with me😉. I did the postures, all of them and sometimes of course more than I should have. What is a yoga class for me without pushing myself again. Right? Like always I am happy to join the class. I am even thinking that hatha suits me better than vinyasa. So, even though my mind still feels dark and heavy, yoga is still on my mind. 🧘‍♀️ 💚~ #yoga #recovery #yogalife #yogalifestyle #baddays #yogagirl #yogajourney

Unbearable change

Change. I don’t understand why we find it difficult to change, when it’s in our best interest. Even though this change can make our lives easier, there is this part in us that just makes it harder to let go. So why can’t I stop certain thoughts, feelings and behaviors? Probably because it’s so familiar. Even though it hurts me or the people I love, it’s familiar for me, my mind and my body. I wonder if I will be able to change and heal completely. It feels weird to let go of something, that connects me to a loss that caused it. So it’s an interesting journey, painful but interesting that can take me to a place I could never dreamed of. Let’s hope so ~ 💜🧘‍♀️ ~ #yoga #yogagirl #yogainspiration #healing #yogalife #yogalifestyle
