Recently, several questions have been thrown at me regarding the matter of heart. Emotions start to stir my thinking and I thought, maybe it's time to share.
Two years ago while I was healing my heartbreak, I went on a yoga marathon. Going to classes every single day, up to 3 classes a day just to keep myself occupied with all the sudden free time.
And I remember, I remember tears flowing out from my eyes at the last pose - savasana, for perhaps a good one month or two. Back then, I thought even yoga can't help mend my broken heart, even yoga can't stop me from crying, even yoga can't clear my mind and tell me what went wrong with my life.
Fast forward today, as I looked back, I would like to say that yoga did help me, not instantly but gradually. Yoga teaches me to bare my soul, to listen to my body, to understand my heart and to love myself.
Baring my soul - to be brave enough to face my own vulnerability.
Listening to my body - as the negative emotions set in, my body crashed and fallen really ill. This spur me on to take care of my health and be kinder to myself.
Understand my heart - embracing the heartbreak and pain that I was going through instead of fighting and suppressing those emotions. Only then I can really let go of what was bothering me.
Loving myself - cause there is only one me, and if I don't learn to love myself, how can I learn to love others?
So when in doubt, just go yoga. #Namaste
