Braving yoga


It is official, I work at a yoga studio and I love it.  We are required to partake in a yoga class at least once a week, the idea is that we need to practise what we preach. What a scary thought …

Much to my horror, the staff yoga class was held on my first day. Of course I was not prepared, think WORK attire not WORKOUT attire. The head instructor offered me a spare outfit. I took one look at her teeny tiny waist and my first thoughts were to run (not that I could actually go further than 20 feet without doubling over in agony) and then she smiled and said she had a pair of loose yoga pants and a tee for me. What a relief …


I walked into the studio, and she introduced me to everyone and asked me to stay up front so she could keep an eye on me. I can honestly say that it started out as the scariest class of my life. In the beginning, I was so focussed on trying to suck in my belly, hold the position and not grunt. I kept watching everyone else and they are all so in tune with their bodies, they seemed to move effortlessly and with no grunting. Halfway through the class I started to relax and it made such a difference although I admit to sounding like a small elephant when we changed positions or had to stretch further.


After the class, my boss congratulated me for giving it a go, I walked away feeling pretty proud of myself.

I still feel like my Tiger’s Eye is playing a role in the success and peace I am feeling. I am still carrying it everywhere, although, Sarah, has said that I need to branch out and discover more crystals and widen my horizons and beliefs about the possibilities out there.

Oh, I almost forgot, the studio is offering a free introduction to Chakra evening next week. I have been asked to help out, I think I might listen in and see what it is all about … I keep telling myself “open your heart and mind to new things Joanna”.


Please continue with me on my journey of peace and fulfilment.

Wishing you light and love
