I started yoga classes again yesterday. I had taken a long pause of 5 months because the semester had begun and my awful schedule did not cooperate. So I decided to stop going and return during winter break. Now that the break finally arrived, I eagerly signed up.
I've noticed how yoga has become really commercial now. I guess it's a new trend, many Hollywood celebs have gotten into it, such as Jennifer Aniston, Demi Moore and Adam Levine (sources here and here). I wasn't much aware of what yoga consisted of until one day a good friend of mine asked me to go with her to one class. I went because I was curious, but my curiosity led me to discover something amazing. That was at the beginning of last year, and I still don't get bored of doing yoga.
It's hard to explain the feeling that you get after each practice, the only word that comes to mind is peace. But it's something you must experience on your own in order to fully understand. Unless, of course, you're one of those people that hate silence and being still, then yoga isn't going to be as fun. What I do find amusing is how relaxed it makes you feel and how every problem you have starts to diminish, it really helps you concentrate in different aspects of your life. Not to mention, the good work out.
I'm not trying to persuade anyone, I'm just here sharing a delightful experience. It'd be nice if more people became in touch with themselves and with life in general. Namaste.
With finals being done, and passing all of my classes *pats self on the back*, I can finally relax and enjoy this winter break. I began by reading The Perks of Being a Wallflower. I'm on page 90 and I started yesterday, it's really interesting. The story conveys a mixture of emotions, I've felt sad, nostalgic, but at the same time happy and optimistic while reading it. It's a strange feeling, very few books are like that. I haven't seen the movie yet, I want to be done with the book first. Although now it's kinda hard to imagine the characters any other different way since the actors are in the cover. I don't know what's gotten into me, and I'm not sure if this stage is going to last any longer, but I haven't felt like this since the longest, with a strong desire to read and not get bored of it. Maybe that's because I realized I need to read more and ever since I got into college and due to my lack of free time, I've forgotten how much of a bookworm I was. I guess it's time to get that side of me to prevail once more.
Not to mention, my recent obsession with Pretty Little Liars. Before the show wouldn't catch my attention, not to mention I wasn't even aware of which channel they transmit it here in Peru. But the other day I was bored and Netflix saved me. I watched 3 episodes in one day, you can tell I had nothing better to do. Speaking of which, it reminds me that I haven't finished seeing the last season of Gossip Girl. Wow, anyone who reads this will think I have no social life whatsoever. I do, but due to recent encounters, I now have more time for myself.
