Future Career

Here I am!

I’m not sure exactly what I’m going to write about tonight, but I felt the desire to write. I feel the desire to be here for my little blog, giving it some attention. Today I’ve been thinking a lot about my career path and what that may look like for me in the future.

I had been thinking a lot about yoga therapy school the past 2 months or so. I really love the idea of becoming a yoga therapist, it’s a lovely idea in my mind. I can see myself being immersed in the world of yoga all day long, helping people choose the right poses for them, helping them also to learn how to process their emotions through yoga, and how to sort out all the thoughts in their mind.

I can see this peaceful career, but there’s also a fear there. A fear that things might not work out the way I want them to. A fear that no one would want to partake in what I have to offer. There’s a fear that no one will understand what yoga therapy is, and I won’t be taken seriously for it. Afraid I won’t have a successful business all on my own. Afraid I cannot reach the people I want to reach.

I am still very interested in yoga therapy, but I’m also looking at finishing up my social work degree. Perhaps doing that, and working in that field for a while and even introducing yoga into that career, bringing yoga therapy to people that way.

Whichever way it happens, I am committed to listening to myself through it all. I’m done choosing based on what I think other people’s opinions are. I’m ready to commit to myself fully and be there through it all. If I make a mistake, that’s ok. I’m willing to give it all to myself. I deserve it!

Moving with the Breath

I still see myself as a beginner at some things when it comes to my yoga practice.

 

I started to practice yoga a little differently than I usually do this week.

It’s been just over a year since I have completed my teacher training. During my regular personal yoga practice, I’ve discovered that my focus is on what poses I should do.

What pose comes after this one? What is my apex pose going to be? What poses am I going to do before Savasana? For this practice, I decided to move my focus from what pose I’m going to do, and instead I decided to focus on my breath. Continue reading “Moving with the Breath”

Yoga Nidra

Hello Everyone!

I have finally created a Yoga Nidra! I personally use the Yoga Nidra technique when I’m exhausted, when I can’t fall asleep, and when I just want to relax when I feel restless. It works like a charm, every time!

Yoga Nidra is a type of meditation that allows a sort of “waking sleep” to take place. It is useful to practice if you have a hard time falling asleep, or if you are trying to reprogram and change yourself into different ways of being.

The music is attuned to 432hz, which is known to connect the right and left hemispheres of the brain, leading you to connection and receiving intuition into some aspect of your life.

I hope you enjoy trying out this meditation!

You Can Heal Yourself

It’s not yoga that heals you. It’s not essential oils that heal you. It’s not medicine or any other thing. It’s the experiences that heals. It’s not the mind that takes a drug and then it’s healed, it’s healed from exposure to new perspectives. As we choose these new, healthy, more balanced things in our lives– we become that.

It’s your body that heals itself when it’s awakening. It’s your mind that heals itself when it’s changing perception. Magic happens when we open ourselves up to possibilities and experiences. Even if those experiences hurt– it’s still healing. It’s still growing.

Change is always constant– how about we choose what we change into, instead of going with the default.

I am committed to change for the better!
