When you travel a lot or change cities frequently, it's not easy to “feel at home”. It takes at least a couple of weeks, or more, to get used to the new place where you live. Sometimes that feeling is addictive, you can’t let it go and stick to that same place for the rest of your life. Other times you fill your flat with nice flowers all over the windows, put a welcome mat in front of the door, add pretty details to the house, but still you don’t feel comfortable living in it.
I’ve started my inner journey through my mind and body some years ago, and the practice on the mat puts me in front of my fears and my weaknesses. I’ve started becoming friends with my body and feeling comfortable with it. Looking for that sensation of being at home in my own skin, that sense of ease that you have when you sit down and speak with your best friend.
When you come to a yoga class you feel there are people around that feel that ease, that comfort. People that won’t judge you for your body or your clothes. And this keeps you inspired to come back to class.
