Last month I was at a farm cooking simple meals for a Yoga camp. It was so nice to be surrounded by trees, a pond near by and the silence! I love to be in nature. I love the silence and the simple routine. I did get into the routine of meditation and relaxation but not much into the postures. I walk regularly but when it comes to the postures, my body just does not comply. I notice how hard it is to get into any pose and how heavy my limbs are and how frustrating the efforts. Sometimes I will persist for a week and some days I will experience some fluidity but.. even if I miss only a day or two, I am at the beginner's level. The body becomes so heavy, and I am unable to push myself. I lose all the motivation and I just feel so bad that with so many attempts over the years I have not been able to stick with the practice. I know I need to be consistent, practice for a long time and not give up the struggle. So, here I start again! Because I do not want to give it up. I do not want to give up Yoga.
