Letting go

Hey Jac…what are you holding onto?

This was a question I kept asking myself this morning in Yin yoga, as I found myself holding tension in muscles and even holding my breath.

The more I practice this form of yoga, the more I become aware of just how much tension I hold onto in a physical sense. With awareness comes the ability to make a change – releasing the muscular activity, letting go of my breath and allowing my respiratory muscles to take over.

In letting go it creates space – space to stretch into, to breath into and move into.

So, it got me to thinking, am I holding onto other “stuff” without being aware of it? A behaviour or habit that’s just part of the routine but isn’t serving its purpose anymore? A role or a job that I don’t really want/need or enjoy but do it because I always have? What if I let go of those things, how much space would I create to do the things I REALLY want to do?

Hmmm…looking forward to next Thursday’s yin already x
