This picture marks the start of my Yoga Journey. I have been hearing a lot about Yoga before and I just didn’t pay much attention to it because I was thinking that it is boring, no challenge and nothing I would get from it. Well, I love doing extracurricular activities ever since. With that, I am into exploring things that look amazing to my eyes. Just like the feeling that you saw someone performs a hobby perfectly splendid, you are in awe, speechless and astonished; you believed that you can also make it (Why not?) or maybe you can do better! However, on that time you do not have the means yet so you promised yourself that you would learn, master and push for it someday. I am always like that, I keep on promising myself that I would surely explore, try and hopefully stick to that hobby. Luckily, everything comes into a perfect timing and I could grasp what I wanted to try. Anyway, looking back I was struggling which one to focus because it is not that easy to have a lot of commitments, I could say that dancing is one of my mainstay hobbies and never in my life I will lose or stop it because it is innate. Though there are some hobbies that I have tried and loved once, thrice or more but it didn’t stay that long because it has some cons for me e.g. resources and accessibility as to mention; Pageants, Cosplay, Workshops, Pole Fitness, diving and etc. thus I couldn’t commit to myself that I could have those as a lifetime hobby.
Finally, my discovery of Yoga.
I didn’t intend or plan to try this stuff and never in my life that I thought that I would practice it and the most…to love it. However, this picture says so. I have been traveling recently and the views that my eyes have witnessed are just so spectacular and incredibly amazing not to be preserved. Most of the time people keeps memories by taking a plain shot and of course on this generation, with a “Selfie” style. However, I wanted to feel the nature, the ocean, calm and relaxed. So, I took a deep breath raised my hand and that moment in the picture was captured. I tried doing some poses thinking that I could have a better scene but unfortunately, I couldn’t. Someone who is very dear to me told me that I could hardly achieve the poses because I don’t have a training, it is difficult I should stop. I was actually confused why should I train where in fact I was just feeling, playing and posing with the scenery. Right then, a concept on my mind started to form.
For that simple reason, it has been a month and a half that I started to train for 2-3 days in a week by myself. One of the good things is that I am not really obliged to go to a gym, to attend a formal class and to pay a membership fee. You can actually do it for free, just a short guidance of someone to check on your poses aided by Nike+Training Club programs.
I am so excited, I believe that it is just the beginning of my Yoga journey and there is a lot more to come. Furthermore, every time that I train, is a moment of discipline, focus, relaxation, unification that relieves stress and anxiety. Gone are the days that I am confused with what hobby should I carry a lifetime. I have found a thing to focus and that thing could really provide me a focus. Right now, my simple reason to do Yoga has gone wide. Because Yoga is so deep to ponder, there is always a lot to learn, a lot discover.
