I really didn’t want to go to Power Yoga today, but it was the only class that fit into my schedule. I don’t like Power Yoga because I believe it’s the hardest class of all the ones my studio offers. It pushes me into poses and flows that are difficult. I know the only way to get better at Power is to get out of my comfort zone and take this class more often. Though I continue to pick the Slow class instead; as I’m much more comfortable in Slow than Power. As I profusely sweated through Power class this afternoon, I knew I was doing a good thing for my body, mind, and soul.
Why is it that the uncomfortable things, that are typically good for me, are so hard to do? Why do I fight it even though afterwards I am proud of what I achieved?
I’ve learned if I do the easy things now, it is harder down the road. Though instead if I embrace the hard things now, it becomes easier down the road. So, I will remind myself to take the hard road more often and practice on!
