To me it feels like active relaxation. It feels like giving my muscles love and my mind ease. It is not “easy” but you should find “ease” in the movements. There are times that it is uncomfortable (but not painful) , times where my body wants out of a pose, can’t take the temperature, and dislikes the instructor (sometimes the instructor is me and I’m having a rough day).
In all that discomfort lies restraint and when we give ourselves to the moment that we are in… we are in yoga. This is what they talk about when they say “Letting Go.” In Savasana, we begin to realize that all the stories our mind created along the way were just that. Stories.
The reality is at the end of a class lying face up, palms open, heart receiving all the light that we have opened ourselves up to. It’s possible, that we are more amazing than we think.
So what does it feel like to you?
If you have not tried Yoga; be that heated, warm, or otherwise… give it a whirl. Be open to the fact that the style, the studio, the community, all plays into your experience. If your experience doesn’t work try something else. I invite you to come move with us at Fitness Fusion on Sunday’s at 9:30 AM. Beginners and beyond.
