A whole lot can happen in the matter of a couple of months.Yogically, I feel I’ve made some real progress. I’ve established a solid home routine that I actually make time for, which is helping me out in all other aspects of life. My work towards full lotus is…slow. However, it’s not stagnant. I can do half lotus on both sides in relative comfort now, but the whole shebang still eludes me. I’m confidant I’ll get there someday soon. I’ve taken an inversions workshop, and I’m loving headstands more than a normal person should. New perspectives, and all. I’ve learned more about chakras and mantras, and I’ve incorporated them into my practice. All in all, yoga has been very good to me.
There’s always a reason why bloggers take a break from blogging, and for me, it had nothing to do with a waning passion for the topic of my blog. In fact, if anything else, yoga has become more instrumental to my daily life. Maybe I had to take a break because so much of what I was experiencing was, well, not yogic. There was a lot of pain, a lot of adversity, a lot of crap. And while I know these moments of doubt and hardship are the perfect moments for practice, my yoga just wasn’t string enough to deal with it all. So I retreated. Hastily.
But in the past few months, my practice has strengthened and so have I. I’m ready to be back. I’m ready to try to add something to my little corner of the blogosphere, and maybe help people find their own healing practice. I’m done retreating. It’s good to be back.
