That’s it. That’s the hardest part of yoga. To show up. Really, truly bring all of myself to the mat, to my practice.
Returned to the Movement Medicine Calm video tonight, because after a lazy day I knew I needed it. Still working like a charm, challenging me, lighting a fire, and bringing me back to myself. Followed it with bedtime yoga, because it’s a soothing go-to and I wanted to finish my practice at least a little sleepy. I feel stretched out, alive, and relaxed. Seems like a pretty good deal.
I have been neglecting the most important part of yoga, especially while procrastinating about starting my practice each day. It’s about me. It’s about showing up for myself, proving that I matter enough to take this time for me. Good thing I have this yoga every day challenge to keep me coming back. Without it, I would fall back into the habit of neglecting myself. Today, I did what I needed to do.
I showed up.
