Finding fulfillment in the little things

A year has come and almost passed us and it’s time to look back at what it has taught me.

The biggest thing entering my life this year has been my yoga practice. I discovered yoga after deciding to try my hand at e-commerce. My husband suggested that I sell gym wear since I’m really into health and fitness. I decided to sell leggings and after doing some initial research found that there are a lot of people selling gym wear. I then stumbled upon the yoga community through Instagram. At first I tried to market my products on my Instagram page but soon realized that it would be better for potential customers to witness my leggings in action. I didn’t know it yet but this decision would change my life.

I started looking at pictures of yogi’s in extreme as well as easy looking poses. The extreme ones were so inspiring and I thought to myself that I could easily do some of the easier ones. So I started doing the poses just to advertise my leggings. Soon I realized that I couldn’t just always do the same poses so I did some more research met some great people on IG and started to do a few yoga flows.

In March I went through something that completely crushed me and I followed along a yoga video from Boho Beautiful. It made me feel great. Throughout the video I was mindful of staying present. Focusing only on what my body is doing and where I was at that moment. It helped calm my heart and my mind and I fell in love with yoga.

In the months that followed I added more and more yoga to my gym routine and in September I started doing my Yoga Teacher training. For the year that lies ahead, I’m moving down to Busan in South Korea and I feel enthusiastic to start teaching Yoga in the New Year.
