Can you relate?
I am a yoga instructor who practices yoga almost daily. When on my mat, there’s an incredible sense of ownership and accountability that I embrace in each posture. I know that if I feel anxious or upset in a certain posture, that I am meeting myself where I am at. No one else is doing this to me - I own it and see it through. Off the mat though, it is easy to forget to own your actions and to own your response.
Recently a friend shared with me a troubling situation where she finished it by saying “well, whatever doesn’t serve you must be let go, right?” And this is true, but that doesn’t mean you get out of the pose. It may mean that you STAY in the pose and figure out what it is that you’re doing to contribute to your own angst. How can you see the situation differently? Are you doing anything to contribute to the situation? Are you blaming? If you’re blaming, why? Is there something you are avoiding?
