I think I will tuck this experience away deep inside as one of the most moving things I've done in a long time. The yoga was the most beautiful to me. I learnt so much about was my breathing technique and also my tummy. I don't know why that affected me so much but I think it has to do with the work I've been doing this year in surrendering. Funny enough the name of the retreat was "LetGo". I realise I hold my tummy in so tight all the time, without knowing it, I'm always clenching. I am still holding on so damn tight. Although I've been doing the daily work in yielding and moving with rather than against... you know, like my paint, creativity, life or everything else really, I still have so much work to do. I shared more about it previously, in this blog post here.
It hit me hard this weekend and my body isn't quite there yet. It felt like deeper work in this area. Like bringing my body in line with the thoughts I've been having this year. Maybe deeper levels to complement the work I've been doing with Gillian, my art and creativity. I don't know, I'm still unpacking it. But as I slow down and contemplate, release my tummy and breathe out, I will continue to do the work and that this was the start of something rather beautiful.
