My first steps in Yoga
Although I didn’t start too long ago to teach yoga, it seems still unreal. Starting to teach it is one of the best things I have done in my life so far. I absolutely love and enJOY to teach yoga, which for me it is fulfilling, it gives me a purpose.
No matter how tired I might be after my long shifts at work (as for the moment I have a full-time job as well), coming home and preparing the classes for my students it is always easy, enjoyable and even fun- if my ferret is around. Enjoying what you are doing is never tiring, never hard, it is as if you are driven by a force- your passion. I feel blessed to live a life of purpose and to be of service to others- to my students.
I remember how excited I was weeks before my first class. Thinking how it would be, how many people will come, if I will find my words, all this stuff. I wasn’t anxious but I have to admit that I have experienced a bit of lack of self-confidence, thinking that I am not ready yet, that I should wait a bit more, maybe go to few more training and workshops and all this blah blah. But luckily for me, I didn’t fall into this trap. Although I didn’t feel ready yet to teach I have decided to take this step and you know what? it is worthed.
You have to start. You have to stop procrastinating. Go out there and do your thing. Share your passion, your joy, your light to the world.
Stay humble and learn each day. Learn from everyone. Keep an open heart and an empty mind, I like to say. This is actually my small prayer that I say before I step on my mat, for my practice: ” I step into this sacred space with an open heart and an empty mind!”
Keep your heart open, let the good things come to you. Keep your mind empty in the sense of not judging. Or at least try as much as you can. Be more aware of your thoughts. You are not your thoughts but your thoughts will create your reality.
Take the first step!
“The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is here that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, the books that were never written, the songs that were never sung, the inventions that were never shared, the cures that were never discovered, all because someone was too afraid to take that first step, keep with the problem, or determined to carry out their dream.”
