Guys, does anybody here do Yoga?
I started doing Yoga about 3 months ago again. Before that I had taken courses back in High School and college to fulfill my education but this time I'm doing it for fun 😀
I mostly take classes in Ashtanga and Yin, but also a little bit of Urban flow yoga, and they are all very enjoyable. You need not only flexibility but also strength which I mostly gain from Ashtanga. So much fun but also requires a lot of self discipline because it gets exhausting.
I've been struggling to open up my hips since I started. I consider myself a flexible person however my hips have been a real struggle. In the hip area is where we keep a lot of stress and tension, so by opening up the hips and creating more space I'm hoping to let go of all the stress hiding in my hips!
Today was a great day for me as I accomplished the Full Lotus Pose for the first time EVER! And it came easy too... Just like that 😁
Thank you Ashtanga for making me hot and sweaty so I could easily slip into this pose. Felt GREAT!
