ready to start, now what?

So a big issue of trying something new is figuring out the best way to begin. In our yoga practice that first step can be harder than mastering any pose. When we walk into our first class intimidation can kick in right away. It is so amazing to see students who are confident in their practice and to observe someone blissfully moving into unknown poses can strike awe but also fear into a new-coming student. I will never get there, I can't do that.... these are things we immediately think and the first part of yoga is to LET THAT GO. You may at times here the phrase yoga is about the journey of the self, through the self, to the self, this is the core foundation of what it is all about. You may not be able to touch your toes or know the sequences in your first class, but the exciting part is that you made it. You are here and now the journey begins for you. When you take a look at where you are currently you realize there is ONLY room for progression. There is never a goal just continuous practice and movement forward. You may wonder what this jargon means, start a practice see where you are at and watch where you can go. The poses are only one part of an incredible journey and telling yourself to push forward is mastering the first step.
