Beginning a yoga practice can be daunting. The idea that flexibility is a pre-requisite often stops many people from stepping into a yoga class. It is difficult in general to start any new practice, whether it's yoga, a new sport or hobby. We all start from a relative place of inexperience and inability. Like anything else, if we push into something too fast, we succumb to a higher risk of injury, frustration and failure. These same principles apply to yoga. By starting out slow and easy, progression and change will happen faster, and it will be safer for your body!
Fences. We see them a lot...surrounding houses, along edges of roads and highways, keeping boundaries and protecting property and land from intruders. Often times, fences are built to keep something or someone from coming in. "Do not enter." Then there are fences that contain something. Fences that do not let you out. "Do not leave."
I was recently inspired by one of Seth Godin's daily posts called, "The Invisible Fence". In his blog, he alluded that fences can be obsolete, and rarely do they keep us confined. If we care enough, if we are determined enough, it is as though there is no fence.
Hello, I'm Julie.
One of the many things yoga taught me was empowerment...and I hope to share that with you here.
Bring wisdom, nourishment and a deeper connection to all aspects of your life.
