Most certainly my purpose & the way I saw yoga was different to now.
It is important to be humble to the transformation we & others do along life.
What yoga is and why we do it vary a lot, and so does the approach & the way we practice to match the life phase we are in at the moment. I see it as important that we have several different teachers, different yoga styles etc although I might not according to my life phase agree or understand why others do what they do sometimes, but I am sure “they” equally say that what I do is “not for them”.
Even how a class is structured will be different, what many like & look forward to might not at all be important to others, not saying any of them are more correct. Fact is that most of us don’t “do yoga” any way according to the original purpose so let that go.
For me as to where I am right now, My practice is not about how fun it is, to expect new exciting things each time and “fun classes”, for me at the moment it is more about how I feel afterwards and how it effected my energy and my Mind level.
I think that the training, balancing activating and or calming the subtle and the Mind is closer to the core of me being more blissful. So naturally Meditation - observing how my tendencies are in asana - pranayama and also Yoga Nidra is more interesting to me then being able to do cool looking or acrobatic asana. But that is Me as to where I am at, and I was not there 11 years ago.
For me it is almost actually disturbing if I would need to open my eyes, loose my inner connection and my conscious breath to look at teacher how to do a new thing - also one of the reasons I do appreciate more to do my own practice instead.
We all have different phases in our life and the choices we do, the practice we do will also affect these life phases, so just do what works for you, what feels like it supports your purpose right now.
But in that, also be very humble to that others don’t always see it as you do since that have their own life phase.
AUM & Love.

I’ve been in a funk for the past while. U don’t get a lot of “me time” when you are a mom of 2 and with the winter we’ve been having it’s been one cold after another that I’m battling while waking every few hours to nurse my baby. I started to feel indifferent about things and it felt like when I was required to be out not only was I not interested, I felt like I had to flip a switch.
This week I finally made an effort to wash my hair, put on makeup and drag myself and Aria out to a mall. It felt super weird and overwhelming. I was about to head back to the car in defeat when I passed by a mirror and saw a glimpse of myself...it wasn’t the messy bun in food stained pajamas that I saw. It was just me. This might sound incredibly stupid or self absorbed but I almost broke down and cried cause I haven’t felt like myself in a long time. A little makeup, clean hair and a good pair of jeans somehow helped a bit. I don’t want to write an essay here and I’m not here to provide solutions... the point I’m trying to make is the importance of Self Care, Self Love and recognizing that you need to give yourself time to recharge once in a while. Richard no matter how busy he is ALWAYS encourages me to take a break whether it’s a massage or a manicure..I usually say no cause I know he’s just as tired if not more. Next time he tells me I be like “K, Bye!” 🤣 Anyway..not everyone has that kind of support. I hope in sharing whatever this all is, you will in turn recognize and encourage a loved one or even yourself to slow down and show some self love and care. 🥰 And to my gfs(u kno who u are)..😘 thank you for your love always. i ♥️ u.

Don’t be discouraged by negativity or criticism... you probably already know what they’re going to say. Use it as fuel to never run out of energy. All that matters is the heart and passion that you have- never lose that, and good things will happen for you 🖤 #doyourthing#ifbbbikinipro
