Can I share something with you guys.
Savasana/corpse pose, (the final posture in a yoga class where we find complete stillness) is beyond challenging for me lately.
I find myself struggling to relax. I just want to move, scratch, & touch. I’m very aware of how suddenly irritating my clothes feel on my body, & at moments it takes all of me to just breath and tell myself “It’s okay to be still.”
It feels like I’m NEW to yoga. (Yoga teacher🙋🏻♀️)
A less aware version of me would be embarrassed, wonder what was wrong, and probably avoid the pose.
But I can smile and know this is not a sign that I’m falling backwards, it’s a sign that I’m pushing the boundaries of my comfort zone.
I’ve been deconditioning from old ways of living, dropping my hustle mindset, and the belief that my worth is determined by how much I do! This deconditioning is leaving my system extra sensitive to “stillness” as I create more and more of it in my life.
I know to get to the other side I need to walk through the discomfort.
And I know that anytime I shed an old layer of me, it might feel intense or uncomfortable for a while.
I share this because if this wasn’t something I had experienced before I might not realize what was going on.
I write this for the sister who is doing the work of walking into fear, deleting old layers of her, & moving into growth, but yet it feels like everything is getting harder.
It is ... don’t confuse the detox for a relapse.
👉You are in the growth phase babe.
👉The discomfort will pass.
👉I am with you.💕
Can anyone else relate ?
