I’m not the same woman today, as I was when I joined my first program with the Esoteric Yoga Stillness Program for Women. What’s more, today I feel that I am a woman, whereas when I first began I felt as though I hadn’t grown up in many ways. I was reactive to so many situations, and felt that I was a bit of a chameleon, changing the way I was with different groups of people to fit in, and to be what I thought they expected me to be.
I recently participated in an online six-week program, with the Esoteric Yoga Stillness Program for Women and it was both deeply beautiful and equally revealing.
Words were spoken by the facilitator during the first session of yoga, which resonated deeply:
"It's just you and your body…"
and, "It's just you and your breath…"
When I heard this, I could feel and hear my breath enter my body, and I felt my body respond, becoming deeply still. Everything then fell into a kind of order. I felt uncomplicated, focused and very present with myself.
“Woah!” I thought. “I am THAT! The quality, my breath, this space I occupy…
This presence – is ME.”
