I’m starting to dig this video making process. Finding my groove, opening up, getting comfortable… all of which makes me feel better about being on video, which makes me better on video.
It’s kinda like starting yoga.
When we first start, or even think about starting, we’re uncomfortable, we’re closed off and shut down, we’re tight, we’re afraid, and often these feelings are so strong, we don’t start so we don’t have to face them.
But the only way to learn something is to do it, imperfectly. And be ok with that.
It’s a bold move on my part to start making videos, with no technical experience, no real video-making equipment beyond my iPhone and iMac, and no experience of making yoga videos before.
I knew I’d suck. And I knew I’d be sucking in public. But I did it anyway. Somewhere along the way, maybe after being committed to a psych ward, I gave up worrying about what people would think of me. I just decided I was going to do what I wanted to do.
And that’s like starting yoga too. We get to a point where we don’t care anymore if we’re going to be the tightest peson in the room. We don’t care if we don’t have the right clothes to wear, or the right yoga mat. We don’t care if we fall out of balancing postures time and time again. We just care about showing up, in all our imperfect Self’s glory.
So that’s what this week is about – showing up, in all our glorious imperfect Self.Oh, and we also do some Free Your Pelvis explorations in wide-legged squat. Enjoy!
