There is always more to learn
Some days it just hits me that there is so much still to learn that I want to learn about. That is how today was.
I had a consultation at a Body & Brain Holistic Yoga center near my house.
I once attended what was supposedly a yoga class, but it was more of an exercise class. Well, and last summer I did some yoga at home using DVD instructors or books - that was also more like exercise. Never felt I was doing it right either. For some reason as I searched the internet at 4 in the morning last weekend this particular yoga center stuck out for me and not really just because it is fairly near my house. I can't really explain why and maybe that is the esoteric part of this post. Anyhow, I scheduled an appointment.
I had about an hour private consultation and I am amazed at how much I learned in that short time and how great I felt when I left.
Jo took time to really find out about me and what my problems were and how I was feeling. That alone was great!
Some just little things, like most women love massages and I really kind of hate them. I just don't like strangers touching me. I had assumed that that was because I was some sort of cold bitch! :-) However, Jo explained to me that it is because I am too sensitive and the energy of others really affects me. Duh! Once she said it, it made perfect sense! It is totally true. I can normally sense someone's mood or stress, even if they aren't touching me and it does affect me.
Also, I learned some really simple practices for my neck and back pain that helped so much that I can't tell you the last time I felt so relaxed and pain free!
I loved it so much that I am hoping to be able to make it to a class at least twice a week! Will keep updating on my progress and anything interesting I learn from it.
