I am writing this post sitting on my floor, sweaty, arms weak and totally full of bliss. I left Tim Feldmann’s workshop not even 30 minutes ago and I am so full of inspiration and thoughts that I couldn’t wait to write it all down. My teacher, Melissa, told me about Kino and Tim many times and I’ve followed them on Instagram for a while now.
When I heard Tim had a workshop near me in NYC, I immediately signed up. I was nervous and definitely full of some doubt. The past few weeks have been tough at work and sadly, I’ve had to neglect a bit of my yoga practice. I’ve been practicing as much as a can, but I haven’t been clocking in the hours that I used to.
As the workshop began we started to do marichyasana d, bhujapidasana, and supta kurmasana. I was definitely struggling and Tim came over and literally lifted me up as I was falling in bhujapidasana. He talked about how important it is to fall on your butt, because that means you are trying.
At the end of class I went up to Tim and asked some questions about my yoga struggles. I told him that I’ve always had problems with my tight hips. He sat me down and he somehow got me into ardha baddha padmottanasana. This pose is one that I NEVER thought I could do in a million years. He even told me that my hips aren’t even that tight.
I haven’t been able to stop smiling since I left. Spending two hours with Tim was extremely therapeutic. I’m feeling thankful and blessed to have spent my Saturday with him at The Shala in NYC and even more thankful that I get to start my week with a totally new mindset.
