Tijd voor verbetering ~ 🌸🖤🌸

Soms voelt het alsof we te weinig tijd hebben. De dagen gaan snel. De weekenden gaan voorbij en de weken zijn zo om. Voor we het weten begint er weer een nieuw jaar en hopen we op verbetering. Wat is verbetering? Soms is het goed om stil te staan, een pauze voor iets wat goed leek. Vorig jaar was ik actief met yoga begonnen en ineens was het klaar. Ik was genoodzaakt de lessen te stoppen en thuis deed ik ook niets meer. Mijn lichaam was te druk geweest. Maar na de stilte van de afgelopen tijd lijk ik weer de weg terug te vinden en begin ik langzaam weer met de oefeningen. Blijkbaar heb ik vorig jaar meer geleerd dan ik dacht. Het moest even landen. Ik doe het niet te lang, zo’n 20 minuutjes per dag. En als ik rust nodig heb, dan rust ik. En als ik zin heb in een stretch of pose dan doe ik dat. Dat is ook het voordeel van thuis werken, minder hectiek en meer ruimte voor jezelf. ~ fijne dag allemaal ~ 🌸🤍🌸~ #yoga #yogalife #newday

A new flow

I am happy to feel the yoga flow again. After a break from 6 months I finally feel the need for yoga exercises, inspiration and philosophy. Apparently it was to much for me but now I listen to what my body and mind ask from me. Next to yoga it’s also the need for other food, healthier. I was working on this last year, but somehow I couldn’t anymore. I was still aware of my food habits but not the way I was last year. This year it will be different and also because I want to. Not because I want to be like somebody else who live healthy, but I want to live healthy myself. That’s a difference and sometimes you need a break from all new you are learning to discover it’s really who and how you want to be. Let’s wait and see now how everything will enfold ~ 💚🌸💚~ #yoga #yogasoul #soul #soulful_moments #yogaandsoul #yogainspiration #yogainstagram

The only way

Even though my hatha yoga class went well, it doesn’t take away my anxiety. My heart is still racing when al kinds of negative thoughts are entering my mind. It feels disappointing, but I am a beginner. I always want too much too soon. I want to be like the advanced Yogi’s, but I am not there. It makes me sad. Thinking that I can’t. But I won’t give up. That’s not me. It will be a long road. With ups and downs, pausing moments. Someday I will get there, it’s the only way. With yoga on my mind ~ 🧘‍♀️ 💔~ #yoga #yogalifestyle #yogaposes #yogalife #yogapractice #yogainspiration #yogagirl #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #depression #anxiety #healing

Rest in the sun

Rest is needed. Three hours of yin yoga was too much to bare. So I need to take it slow the rest of the week. No yin, but hatha next Saturday. Working on my breathing exercises again. The rest of the week it’s walking. Enjoying the sun on my skin. Breathing the fresh air of spring. It doesn’t give me the joy of yoga. Hopefully yoga helps me to enjoy these moments better. ~ ☀️ ~ #yoga #yogagirl #yogainspiration #yogalife #yogalifestyle #yogapractice #yogajourney #yogalove #yogalover

Doubt and surrender

At this moment I wonder if I will ever be able to surrender to yoga. Surrender in a way I can trust the process. Like doing a pose. Not for performing the pose, but to experience the pose. So I need to experience yoga rather than doing yoga. Experiencing yoga is more difficult. You need to surrender and I don’t know how. So that is where I am at this moment. Surrender, experiencing my doubts and practice yoga again. So someday I will experience the complete surrender to yoga and hopefully find my inner peace. It’s a long way… ~ 🧘‍♀️ ☁️~ #yoga #yogagirl #yogainspiration #yogalifestyle #yogalife #yogapractice #yogahealing #healing #healingjourney
