It's been almost one year since I experienced my first training with Ana Forrest. Almost one year since I took the plunge and decided to turn my practice into fierce medicine...
I've been looking through my notes reviewing our daily lessons about feeding the soul, elimitating the toxic wastes both physically and emotionally, and learning to live our practice. I can remember taking personal notes saying, "I need to do this. Why can't I be strong enough to make this decision? IS this really what my soul wants?"
It's terrifying having to make change. And as Ana says, you feel really silly talking to yourself asking your soul what it needs. But, since I started talking to myself and listening to my soul, I've started to live again. I'm healing! I'm breathing! Sometimes I have to remind myself to do it, but it's become less and less often that I forget.
Ana will be in town this weekend (March 28-30) and I am really excited to enter this space with so many people who have encouraged me to honor my soul. One year ago I was bawling my eyes out drowning in tissues and smart water just trying to grasp the medicine this practice offers. Now, I'm going to experience the yoga with a soul that is well fed and nourished.
