Day three of the #fly4summer yoga challenge is #strength
Yoga and aerial yoga are the first physical practices I have ever* tried, so naturally when I first began my practice I had zero upper body and core strength.. holding plank in an ankle-catch had my arms feeling like jello and staying in goddess pose for longer than one shallow breath was like torture. Looking at this photo I am truly so proud of how far I’ve come physically, but also mentally, and spiritually.. it is an incredible feeling to witness your own metamorphosis and inspire YOURSELF.
Up until a few years ago, I was so mentally and physically ill that I had never taken the time or interest to discover a healthy and nourishing way to challenge my physical body, or take a risk without it being reckless and impulsive.
I spent my time numbing my internal confusion with toxic relationships and substances, hiding dark emotions deep within my psyche, not realizing that a certain darkness is needed to witness the stars.
As my soul has evolved the past few years I have become curious about the full spectrum of my spirit. I have forced myself out of my comfort zone daily, and explored the eclipse that is my essence, and in doing so I discovered that I am a unity of spirit, a divine fragment in this infinite universe..the aches in my heart are holy.
I was incarnated here on earth to reconnect with the sacred spirit that has lived many lives in many realms and to channel that connection through various methods of healing.
I am slowly beginning to honor my purpose, to step into my power and teach, heal and inspire, and I intend to make it my mission in this lifetime.
Naturally life gets rough, but I am here now and I embrace anything and everything that I encounter on this path I'm traveling..and I think that’s strong af 💪🏻
