Sometimes Yoga Sucks

pexels-photo-40030In the past few weeks, I’ve been struggling to get to any yoga classes. Usually, I attend early morning sessions because they’re the most convenient for me and they are the most beneficial for my body.

Some of the great things about yoga, can sometimes actually really suck. Having to face your emotions and your inner self can be not only emotionally exhausting but also uncomfortable. What if there is something that you would rather not examine? I completely understand that it’s necessary to work through our issues to be freed from them, but that is often painful.

I’ve been working through some extremely painful and I’ve had to step back from a lot of things in order to take care of myself. However, avoiding going to yoga is not one of those things I should avoid. It’s been one of the things that has helped me in the past, and I know it will continue to help me now, I just need to find the strength to fight through the hard stuff.

Wish me luck.

Namaste.

  1. It’s totally understandable to need a break. Sometimes we need breaks from lots of aspects of our lives in order to really assess where we are mentally or even spiritually. I’ve definitely had moments during yoga when I have to face something tough, usually something I didn’t even realize was bothering me. Yoga takes a lot of bravery for that reason.

    I don’t know if this works for you, but I like to journal right after I do yoga, so I can write out whatever is going on in my head, whatever was keeping me blocked or giving me those emotions. And I definitely recommend home yoga for this reason as well – it takes a lot of the pressure off.

    I hope you can find the strength you need – I know it’s inside you. Good luck ❤
