To start to learn Esoteric Yoga was and still is amazing and beautiful.
The first time I did an Esoteric Yoga session I was able to do it overseas in a live session with a lot of other people. We were all in one big room. We started with a small introduction about the intention and true meaning of Esoteric Yoga. I remember just hearing Vicky talking was already deeply calming my body.
We lay down and were asked to do very simple and gentle movements with our body. Those movements where so simple because it was not about making things complex in any way shape or form. It was just to learn to be present with the movements. The purpose was to learn to feel the connection with my body again and to deepen that connection.
I was participating and noticing how much I was not present with my body, but just a cloud of thoughts in my head while moving my body. All thoughts showed up even more. The commitment towards myself to break this pattern was there. I can tell you that getting the support of Esoteric Yoga is a huge support to feel the love again in your own body. It is like you just feel yourself surrendering more and more. Then I just feel more and more the beauty within myself.
In one way it was a funny idea to have an online yoga class but I trusted that it doesn’t matter if you are physically together or not. It was amazing. It didn’t matter at all that it was online. Laying there on the ground on my mattress felt the same as I experienced in my live session overseas. There was no difference. My last online Esoteric Yoga session was one of the most profound and beautiful yoga sessions I have ever had. Every session is an opportunity to surrender more.
