Lately I have been soul searching, looking for inspiration, creativity and passion. Since when I started to practice yoga it was not possible for me to afford a studio, all I have learned has been online. Recently I had the opportunity to work in a yoga studio so I get to go to class and I really like it; and with this new experience comes new people into my life with their ways of seeing the practice and what is suppose to be yoga and what not. What I have learned is to stay true to myself and what I want and like. I recommend to start the practice with a teacher but in my case it wasn’t possible but I have always been really interested in learning the correct form to avoid injuries and that has kept me save so far. I encourage you to practice how it is possible to you. Yoga is defenitly a life changing practice to a more calmer, peaceful, loving, kinder, respectful you with yourself and others. Working in the studio and practicing with them have enriched my life and my practice in so many ways. Namaste 🌼 ( I was trying titibhasana with the strap)
Sometimes exploring this world of blogging and social media I wonder if I really have something valuable to add that someone else hasn’t already done it, but really looking at others and myself I see that I am not inspire by just one person, my growth have been influence by many people not only people that I follow on social media but also everyday people that I meet on the street. So, yes there is always that you, me and all can bring to the table to make it colourful and full of varietywhich is the purpose of interacting with many different people. In this note I am planning to start a YouTube channel to share my experience about yoga, nutrition and also share products that I like. I hope I can bring something new to your life and also mine since this is going to be also a learning experience for me.

My fiancé lives in Montreal, so I have been making the transition for a year now. We are both from Venezuela, so it has been a roller coaster. I love the city and everything that has offered me, the parks, the people, the language, the food, the culture, everything is fascinating but like every transition has other aspects the missing of family and friends, and all the familiar things we were used to. Our jobs and the lifestyle we were use to having. It has been a soul searching period in order to have faith and believe we are going to make it in a different country and at our age, it has been hard, very hard at times. It has helped me to realize that I don’t want to keep doing the same as a professional, I have discovered my passion for yoga and nutrition, it has made me look at myself in ways a had never knew, I am more aware of what I think, say and do to myself and others and I am thankful for that. I am still trying to figure out how can I do what I want and live the life I want, with everything the health, the exercise, the free time, the family and the income I want. There is always light even in the darkest moments when you think you will not see the end, so I do have faith that I will figure it out 🙏🏽

I am doing a meditation challenge and today’s quote really got me thinking “we first make our habits, and then our habits make us” John Dryden. This is so true, sometimes we think we can’t change because we are used to certain habits but it turns out that if we really want we can change them and that will totally change our life, will change the way we see ourself and others and the world. So what ever you want to do, you can do for sure when you change your habits 👏🏽🙏🏽💙
Goddess Pose / Utkata Konasana
One of the most important things for me is family. For me is key that my family feels comfortable with me, talking to me, confiding in me. I have realized that sometimes I am not super emphatic with family situations, I always try to work on that and on myself so I can be better for me and in consequence better to others. I honestly believe that we should tell the people we care for, how great they are at whatever we think they are and that we are grateful to have them in our life. With a open heart and vulnerability is easier to live.

Sometimes I feel so overwhelm with problems. I wonder am I going to see the ending of this situation? My practice is one of the things that keeps me sane, keeps me in the present moment. I know I am lucky I have so much more than other people, I just try to breath and ask for a solution.

It is important to remain positive even when the situation is not what you want or how you like it. Making the best of every experience will help you to get through tough times and also appreciate the best of times.
