Yoga: Out of my Mommy Box

out of the mommy boxThoughts and ideas usually “hit me” in yoga.  It’s probably the only time I am completely present and open. I have managed to sneak out of my mommy box and be me. Just me. My “hit me” moment yesterday morning at Ocean Yoga’s 12th Annual New Years Day Free Yoga class was yet another realization about the importance of yoga in my life.

It reminds me that there’s more to me than mommy. It puts me in a sacred space with people who share my philosophies. It rejuvenates me. It allows me to open my mind and heart to non-mommy aspects of my life. It is a treasure and a treat.

Moms need these things. They really do. The challenge is to find the time and the child care. Those two things are often the hurdles we can’t jump.

This new realization, however, has inspired me to sneak out of the box as often as I can, whether for yoga or something else that reminds me of me. Just me.

  1. Glad to have found you through the Mommy A to Z linky party. I just started yoga last year, and found it was incredibly helpful in getting me to recognize the parts of me that are more-than-a-mom – and to center me for my day. It’s also a great time to let my baby ideas stretch and grow int more full-formed ones – some of my best writing has taken shape as i do yoga! hanks for sharing your experience.
