I Almost Stopped Yoga, But Here’s Why I Didn’t

I practiced yoga on and off my whole life, but I almost stopped doing it completely two years ago when I went to visit my parents. I was studying abroad in Paris, and since I had more free time than usual, I took the opportunity to spend a lot of time with my family – including my brother, who was 17 at the time and recently started high school.

If you can go deeper than this there might be more

When I started yoga, I didn’t know what to expect. I was just looking for a way to relax and de-stress. But as time went on, I realized that yoga was so much more than that. It was a way to connect with my body and my breath. It was a way to find peace and stillness in the midst of a chaotic world. And it was a way to connect with something bigger than myself.

The Downward Dog

I was really struggling with my yoga practice. I felt like I wasn’t progressing and that the same poses were just becoming harder and harder. I was ready to give up altogether.

The Fish Pose

When my yoga teacher first introduced the Fish Pose, I was skeptical. It looked impossible, and I was sure I would never be able to do it. But after a few tries, I found that not only was it possible, but it was also incredibly relaxing. Now, the Fish Pose is one of my favorite yoga poses.

No One Needs to Know

I was really tight on money and time, and yoga just didn’t seem like it was worth it anymore. I was thinking about quitting altogether. But then I realized that yoga is still yoga, even if I’m not doing it in a studio or with a group of people. It’s still a practice that can help me connect with my body and my breath, and that’s something that’s worth its weight in gold. So I decided to keep practicing, even if it means doing it on my own at home.

Sheer Strength

I was really struggling with my practice. I felt like I wasn’t progressing and that my body wasn’t able to do the things that other people in my class could do. I was ready to give up. But something kept me coming back to yoga. Maybe it was the fact that I had invested so much time and money into it. Or maybe it was because of how good I felt after a class, despite how difficult it was. Whatever the reason, I’m glad I didn’t give up on yoga.

Balancing Act

I was in the middle of a yoga class when I realized that I had been holding my breath for the last few minutes. My heart was racing and I felt lightheaded. I knew that if I didn’t take a break, I was going to pass out.
