Experience of a Yogi

Threshold to go back to your practice?

When I stepped foot over the threshold at Thrive Yoga last week, after 2 years, a smile immediately came to my face. I breathed in the wonderful aromas of the studio and was warmly welcomed by Marco. Once on the mat, I enjoyed the teacher's inspiring words, the connection with my fellow yogis and the meditative flow. It felt like coming home, as if I had never been away.

Before the corona, I could be found in the studio every week and almost nothing could stop me from going. So why did I wait so long to come back, I wondered? At the beginning of class Marco shared this saying: "Worrying does not take away tomorrow's troubles; it takes away today's Joy". During the shoulder pose, I realised that I had deprived myself of the joy I experience through the yoga classes by "worrying". My routine was broken, suddenly going back to the yoga studio was a big step out of my comfort zone and my head was thinking of all kinds of excuses not to go. A great pity, because my goodness, how I missed it!

Why am I sharing this experience? Because I'm sure I'm not the only one who experiences this, after all it's very human when something has gotten out of your routine to feel a threshold to return. The very same evening I signed up again for the weekly classes. Yoga brings me so much... I would like you to have it too! So don't postpone it any longer, book a class, you will thank yourself.



Our Yoga classes pay a lot of attention to posture, movement, breath and philosophy. Classes vary from active flow to meditative relaxation.


The Pilates method is an effective body workout that simultaneously strengthens and stretches muscle groups to create a balanced and flexible body.
