Let Go

Do you sometimes hear words that stick out as a direct message aimed at you when you hear someone speak? That is what happened to me in my Bikram class today. The teacher Sara kept telling us to let go. And it felt like it was a direct message to my ego. I need to learn how to let go. I don’t even fully leg go while I lay down in savasana. If I make an effort to feel a little extra – I will notice that I am still tense in certain areas. Meaning that I didn’t let go.

I’m going to get back to my weekly self-improvements that I used to do a while back. And tomorrow, which is a new start of a new week will be my “Let Go” week. Meaning I will focus on letting go & surrender myself to not needing to have everything in my control. Accepting, being & feeling content with releasing all the control.

Will keep you updated on how it goes!

Bikram I’m back!

2 months & 17 days in from recovering & adjusting to mommy hood I get to visit the Bikram shala with my mat! What an experience! I had a feeling of gratitude through most of the practice. However, at times I really missed my little son since I never have been away from him before. I cannot imagine mama’s who have to work & leave their little blessings at home!! I am soo blessed to be able to stay home with my little spirit!

At first it was easy going through all the breathing & initial poses but after about 30 minutes I was ready to throw in the towel. My mind started feeling sorry for myself as I was still recovering from pregnancy I thought….at around 50 minutes of heat, sweat & yoga I finally started to really enjoy the practice. My feelings of gratitude & happiness came back! And the timing of waiting for more than 2 months felt perfect! I wouldn’t have enjoyed doing Bikram anytime sooner.
