Discovering my hobby...

Wend-Barbour 1 Discovering My Hobby I have never really thought of myself having a particular hobby. When I think of the different types of hobbies that people take up, I think of baseball card or comic book collections, sewing, knitting, painting, and anything artistic. When asked to write a reflection on the hobby of my choice, I felt a little confused by whether or not I had a hobby. The first place I went to was the internet to look up the definition of the word hobby. Merriam-Webster’s A hobby is “a pursuit outside one’s regular occupation engaged in especially for relaxation.” Merriam-Webster Dictionary dictionary defines the word hobby as “a pursuit outside one’s regular occupation engaged in especially for relaxation.” I immediately had an “aha moment” after reading the meaning of the word and realized that I do have hobbies! All this time I have been entertaining one of my leisure activities, not being aware that it is a hobby. Yoga in My Life Yoga has always been a part of my life in one way or another. There have been plenty of breaks where it has not been in my life, but I always seem to come back to it, especially during times of high stress and when I crave balance with-in myself. My Mother practiced yoga to some degree when she was pregnant with me. Practicing and Tara's Hobby Updated

I had found an illustrated book of different yoga poses, which at the time I did not realize that the drawings were actually part of a yoga series. I remember how much more flexible I was back then and the poses (asana) came naturally to me. However, somewhere between childhood and early adulthood, my inner YOGA HELPED EASE MY ANXIETY yoga bird flew away for a long while and eventually migrated back to me when I experienced a difficult time around the age of 25. The little yoga bird landed on my shoulder and tweeted in my ear telling me to try yoga to see if it would help with the deep anxiety I was experiencing. I started practicing yoga using an at home DVD and I soon began to notice a difference in how my body was feeling. It also helped ease some of the anxiety. Learning how to connect my breath with movement and synchronizing both to create space and better circulation throughout my body had a very positive impact. I was consistent with my yoga practice for about a year or so until my yoga bird flew away again. My Inner Yoga Bird After much resistance, the little bird found me again about four months ago when I was in desperate need for balance and physical pain relief. For about eight months prior, that little birdy sang it’s little yoga tune in the back of my head, singing and gently reminding me to try a class called Yin Yoga. Yin Yoga is a type of restorative yoga that involves gentle, yet deep stretching using breath work to help release tension, oxygenate the blood flow, and lubricate the joints. I finally surrendered to the resistance that was holding me Tara's Hobby Updated

Wend-Barbour 3 back from attending the class. It has been the greatest gift I have given myself in a long time. I found being in class with an experienced yoga guide was a supportive and safe environment to work on restoring my energy and help release some of the pain and tension that my body has been holding onto. I am full of gratitude that I am able to participate in this deeply rewarding hobby. Even if my inner yoga bird flies away again, I know it will always come back when the season calls for it. For now, I will continue to practice yoga and make this hobby a priority in my life. Tara's Hobby Updated
