Confession Time: Yoga Will Change My Life

You ever just know that something will have a profound effect on your life. You sense it, feel it... that thing pops up all the time and your sub conscious just knows it has an important meaning for you.

Okay, so here is the thing. At my deepest core, I KNOW that Yoga will have a great and positive impact on my life. This has nothing to do with anything I have read or seen on TV, I just know it. A strong unrelenting sense... an understanding that if I follow this path (take up Yoga) good things will happen. "So", you ask "do I practice Yoga?"
I am sorry to say, but the answer is no. When the signs would pop up, or I felt strongly pulled towards it, I would ignore it or find an excuse why I could not possibly take up Yoga.

But now... I feel myself once again strongly drawn towards Yoga... and that little sense of mine is telling me this is the last chance. "Ignore this at your peril" my little voice says "This is your last chance to take this particular road to health". So I am relenting and embracing Yoga as my path back to health.

From how I understand it, I live mostly in my head and my body has become this cranky chauffer that just carries my thoughts around. Friends tell me that Yoga will help me to unite the two (body and mind) and learn to live in the present.

Wish me luck....

Good luck! Definitely try it. I love yoga and try to go once a week. I'm trying to up it to twice a week. It can be a pain to get there and I'm usually tired walking in, but I feel so wonderful after.

Hey littlebrowngurl, it be me.Yo Auntie ova 'ere in dat town ya done come from 'riginally. Ah so proud of ya littlebrowngurl. We be missin ya ova 'ere.

Anyway... I've not tried yoga yet. When I lift and stretch to pull my covers off, bend and turn to put my feet on the floor, get on my knees and thank my God that I made another day and have life and limb (moving about even) - I'm done. But good luck with that Yoga thing.
