The Change In My Body- Inside And Outside

The change in my body inside and outside during my 200 hour yoga teacher training in Rishikesh.

The Change Of My Body Inside And Outside, During My Teacher Training Course In Rishikesh

I arrived in Rishikesh with a big smile, a clear mind, and a body full of energy, ready to get fulfilled by the fantastic atmosphere of this place and to embrace all the new teachings at the yoga school.

I was smiling inside and outside. I was finally starting my Yoga Teacher Training course, which I had dreamed of for a long time. Something for which I’ve fought, sacrificed, invested, and believed. I was finally there, ready to start a new adventure and a new chapter of my life.

On the first day, during the initiation ceremony, I found myself in front of the bright fire and chanting some beautiful mantras. Swami was seated in front of the fire and was explaining its meaning to us :

“The fire is where we throw everything we don’t want to carry with us anymore. All the garbage we have inside. Bad emotions, destructive feelings, negative thoughts, and moments of the past. We throw everything away and start a new life with bright light; this is the beginning of a new wonderful journey.”

At that moment, I felt exactly in the right place, in the right moment of my life, and I knew exactly why I was there. I wanted to create a new path, a new peaceful path, a new way to see myself in peace and balance in life.

Swami also said that those things we were mentally throwing in the fire probably would have come back to us during the course, in our body and mind, maybe in different ways, through various practices. I was so happy and excited that day that I didn’t pay enough attention to this last part of the speech.

“Things will come out, and you will have to face them. Just sit there and look at them; maybe you won’t like them. But you will learn from them, and they will go away. And eventually, you will find peace.”

Pranayama, Yoga Nidra, Meditation, Philosophy. After a few days, I realized how much I underestimated the importance of these practices during my daily yoga practice (mainly based on Asana and some meditation). These practices are the foundations of yoga. Yoga without them is just plain exercise. I understood this clearly during the classes.

I started to feel the necessity to go deep into these practices, and I wanted to understand more, to feel more, to bring them into my life even without knowing the exact meaning or the exact way of doing them.

And then things came out—those things you don’t want to see. But you know, that is there.

I suddenly saw my body losing all its energy, having spasms, moving inside, speaking to me. I found myself crying, smiling, shouting, wondering, accepting.

I could feel that something was happening, and it was not only the tiredness of the intense Asana practice in the morning. It was not only being in a new place, eating an only particular food, changing my routine completely, and is studded with millions of notions every day. It was none of that. It was my body speaking to me.

I was paying attention to my body for the very first time and listening to what he wanted to say. At its time. At its rules. At its pace.

I felt so armless in front of its power on me.

I’ve always thought I was listening to my body correctly in my life, but I wasn’t.

After this episode, the next day, I was feeling better again. My body was restored. (my mind is still a bit of work in progress

But there’s one thing I will never forget. The practice of Asanas I did that day, I’ve never done it before. I felt my body alive. “Listen to your body” How many times we’ve heard this? But how many times do we pay attention to it? How many times do we feel and listen to our bodies? I’m only in the middle of this challenging path of my ashtanga yoga teacher training India, and I know many things are still to come, but one thing so far I’ve learned for sure, and I will never forget it.

Listen to the body. He speaks to us all the time, and he has interesting things to say. Take more time with your body and breath, and fall in love. Fall in love entirely. Yoga is love. And now I realize why. I guess some transformation is in action, and I’m just the spectator in front of this enormous change happening in my body and mind. So now, I will sit here and watch it with an open heart and big eyes, and I will embrace everything it brings me with acceptance and immense gratitude.
