When I enrolled in my first on-line Esoteric Yoga Stillness Program For Women session, I had just retired from a very hectic and very demanding teaching career. I always had deadlines to meet and well-regulated tutorial sessions to prepare for, deliver, assess and evaluate. My mind didn’t know how to relax, nor did my body, and as a result I was in constant motion and drive to achieve ‘something’.
In reality, not only was my professional life in constant motion of doing things, my personal and family life operated with the same busyness.
I have participated in a number of Esoteric Yoga programs in the past six years, however one of my most recent experiences with the Esoteric Yoga Stillness Program for Women supported me to bring a deeper quality of stillness and presence with my body into my everyday life – to a level that I had not previously experienced.
I have always believed that when we are ready for something, be it a challenge, a delight or a new pathway, we find our way to it, or it to us… So it was with Esoteric Yoga.
I had known of Esoteric Yoga for some time but continually dismissed it as ‘not being for me’ until one day that changed. I became consciously aware that when it was mentioned I felt something different inside and when I heard about the Esoteric Yoga Stillness Program for Women and its accessibility online, I absolutely knew that this felt right and that I needed to follow this through. Imagine my frustration when I realised the program ran in six-week blocks held at intervals throughout the year, and I had to wait! I can be very patient or, as I realised, want instant gratification – the learning had begun…
