It’s been a six months since I have started practicing yoga regularly, and boy, a lot has changed since then.
Internally, I feel so much more balanced than I was before, and this comes through in my physical practice. Just two months ago it would have been difficult to come into the birds of paradise pose (above) at all. My mind was constantly buzzing with thoughts and anxieties. So much so that it was difficult to find ease and peace in being slow or still. I kept rushing through yoga and felt frustrated every time I lost my balance in one-legged asana.
These days mind is clearer, and my heart is more open. My practice has been such a gift :).
