“He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche
Everyone finds their practice for a different reason.
That reason could be a whole number of things, from calming the mind to losing the belly fat.
For me it was losing the belly and the back fat.
It was as simple as that at the end of the day, but the practice hooked me in and led me to where I am today.
But I didn't start yoga so I could live a better life. It happened naturally. Because when you start yoga, something changes.
I'm sure you already know that, because you're here, right? Yoga has done something for you that has you coming back to the mat again and again.
But just because we move beyond the place where we started, doesn't mean we should forget where that was.
Instead, we should remain conscious of that place, of that mindset, or that thing, whatever it was, that brought us to our practice in the first place.
So that when we have hard days, or are busy, or discouraged, we remember what it is we're really practicing for.
So we can hold on to that.
And re-discover the beauty of this practice.
Today's class brings me, personally, back to my why; back to the reason that I started this practice in the first place.
It's the kind of physical practice that I love most.
But even though it's physically challenging, it can be so much more than that.
