I love yoga from a very young age.
However, due to other responsibilities and priorities, I could not give proper time to Yoga.
I got married 10 yrs back, then a kid in a year then some restless years, and then another kid a few years back.
Above that, I had a very serious knee injury that was one of my strong mental obstacles.
But above all, the biggest issue was with my mindset that I had accepted the situation and I accepted my body that could not do yoga as I wanted.
Then, lock down happened!
It was probably the “me time” I always wanted.
No school, no office, no daily fast life routine.
What to do?
So, my subconscious convinced my consciousness that there is one thing that I always wanted to do.
That thing I always admire, I always follow on social media.
That is Yoga.
I started doing it at home when my kids were sleeping. Sometimes it was in the afternoon at 2 pm, sometimes at midnight at 2 am.
But trust me, every time it was worth giving up my sleep and doing it.
As someone said, your real dreams don’t let you sleep.
I was doing basic earlier.
However, slowly I found that I could do better if I push myself.
In a lockdown, I had all the time on this earth to do it.
Then I searched some online profiles with similar interests on Instagram and YouTube.
Started following some Hatha yogis. I watched them. Then I tried it myself and so many times doing it.
So many times I was disappointed, still every time I was progressing.
Learning on your own self was not that easy but surely it was amazing fun.
After many many trials, I started doing what I wanted.
They were my “Yessss” moments.
I started loving that feeling. I started challenging myself.
Fortunately, my body and mind also supported and started getting better.
My obstacles have vanished now. My knee pain is gone. My kids and family supporting me in doing yoga.
Even they started doing the same. I m getting words of admiration even from unknown people on the internet.
Trust me, it works as fuel to my passion.
I have started living my life again. And I have found what I love the most. I still challenge myself every day.
It goes on.
