Follow Your Heart
“Yoga is a living art. It’s a means of moving, breathing, thinking, expanding and contracting, evolving and interacting within the complex, ever-changing landscape of the world within and around us”.
Since I was a very young girl, I always expressed interest in yoga, spirituality, matters of the soul, the Universe, nature, and human sciences in general. My favorite moments are the ones spent in nature, hiking mountain trails, listening to the sounds of the wind and rain. After a day spent in nature, I would come back home with sore muscles, but a full heart, and usually by 9 pm I would be asleep like a baby. In the city, I could never feel that peace and silence, so each time I had a chance I would run to the hills surrounding my home city.
My personality was always more introverted and it would take me time to build connections or relax with unknown people. I am not really people person, although I love meeting my friends and talking about various topics.
I have never been religious, but I have always believed that there is some force that created us and is taking care of us.
I have always had an interest in health preservation, I read a lot about healthy eating habits, herbalism, healing plants, vegetables, etc.
All these characteristics and interests were preparing me for what came next. It was a matter of time when yoga will open up to me and awaken the seed I was holding buried for so long.
Today I am on this path of self-discovery, body postures, breathing techniques, mantras, and holistic healing. Two things (which might sound weird to you) attracted me to yoga. First I don’t want to be afraid of my death or the death of people that are close to me. When they die I want to say goodbye to them in peace knowing that the physical body might be gone, but the soul is infinite and it will find some other body to continue its journey. The second reason is that I would like to graciously grow old, feeling fit and healthy until the moment comes to leave this world or enter mahasamadhi (leaving the physical body on Sanskrit).
