Inside the world of yoga, massage therapy and a whole lot more
Posted On June 16, 2021
From the moment she stepped out of her gym locker, it felt like yoga was in the bag.
When she walked into the fitness center, she found a staff member holding up yoga mats and yoga mats for yoga practice.
She had practiced with the staff members for several hours before coming.
She took her first class, which was for a yoga class.
She’s been taking classes for several months now.
She says she’s found it’s a lot more enjoyable than her classes with the other staff members, but she admits it’s also a lot harder to get into.
“It’s really hard to get in.
It’s a little bit of a weird vibe, it’s more like the old school gym,” she says.
She said she had to learn to be comfortable with being uncomfortable, and that was a challenge for her, since she says she wasn’t always comfortable with the physical environment in the gym.
“The first time I came, I thought, I’m in there.
I’m going to be here for a while,” she said.
“You have to be like, ‘Oh, this is really bad.
This is really scary.
This really sucks.'”
In the beginning, she struggled to find her groove.
“I just sort of got to a point where I was just going to say, ‘Yeah, I think I need to do something different,'” she said, but after a few weeks, she was able to relax a little more.
“If you’ve never had that experience of going to yoga class and then just feeling like, you know, ‘I can relax,’ I don’t know,” she explained.
“And that was just amazing.”
At the gym, she has found a new way to relax, and is excited to get out of the gym and back into the world.
“There’s a bunch of things that are different here, so I’m trying to find a way to just make my life a little easier,” she added.
She hopes that she’ll be able to find that new space that she can feel comfortable in.
“Because that’s what I love, is to just be in the moment and just just be alive,” she laughed.
“That’s my mantra.
I don, like, go into a room and I’m not feeling comfortable.
And then I go in and I feel good.
I just feel like, that’s it.”
And she is happy that she found her new space.
“This is definitely one of my best moments,” she quipped.
