[:en]Oh darling, what if you FLY? | Sept 2015 | flying with the FlyingAcroYogi[:]

Did you ever dream of FLYING but always thought you couldn’t?
Do you recognize a feeling of fear or shyness that stops you from trying something, even when you actually really want to learn it?*

Failing or falling scares me. Sometimes when I don’t immediately succeed in something I feel like a failure, and this even makes me feel that EVERYTHING I do is a failure! Falling and failing can bring up very raw emotions – yet I believe that we grow the most by trying again even when we fail the first time!

Here are Yoga wisdoms that time and time again help me to pick up my miserable ‘failed’ self:

Yoga is not about touching your toes, it is about what you learn on the way down to your toes. I believe that being able to do a great acrobatic move or making a pretzel of your body doesn’t necessarily make you a better person or a better Yogi! For me it is important that I enjoy the process of learning and that I find stillness in my practice whether I manage to do a pose or not. Patience and tolerance are the keywords!
You don’t need to be great to try, but you have to try to be great! If you never try you will never know whether you can do something or not. From my experience as an AcroYoga teacher I notice that people often underestimate their abilities. People have no idea how strong and able they are until they try!
I believe everyone can fly: it is a matter of trying, sometimes failing, or falling, learning from the experience and trying again. Most important is to keep breathing and smiling during the process!

In my workshops you’ll be given clear guidelines and fun preparations for basing, flying and spotting. Especially the role of the spotter will be emphasized so everyone feels safe to explore AcroYoga even when things go out of balance.

Do not worry about falling! TRY flying! If you want learn how to fly come to one of the THREE beginners AcroYoga workshops:

The first one is THIS Sunday in Thrive Yoga in Amsterdam!
