Do You Have A Yoga Body?
Energy Matches (and Misses)
We are bombarded with photos of beautiful, young, fit yoga people doing difficult poses. It makes us believe that we have to have a certain body type to do, or to teach, yoga. I believed it, and it was such a huge block. The idea of my body, or lack-of-lean-yoga-body, literally kept me from stepping onto my mat for years. I still struggle with it, to this day, even though I know that a yoga body doesn’t exist.
A Beautiful Breathwork Testimonial
Sometimes, you need to get hit over the head with the same lesson, time and time again, until the bump gets too tender to be ignored. And this last whack was a real eye-opener. I’m done. Lesson actually, truthfully learned.
Melting In LA
There is a great power within ourselves to heal, and our breath is its engine. As my steady breathing picked up steam, the repetitive inhale and exhale dance literally felt like my breath moved in harmony with the cells in my body... I began to feel tingling, circulating sensations throughout my body, swirling through, filling me with warmth. I was letting go.
If You Don't Have the Time to Read This...
When I found the breathwork (that I currently practice actively) to facilitate emotional release, I was bowled over. It was a strong, powerful breath that rolled through my body and moved energy. It cleared so much stagnant energy out and created space for new possibilities. It allowed my subconscious mind to send me messages that I needed in a way that I could both handle and understand. I felt the energy move through my body, I got tingly, and I found that it left me with a crazy, natural high.
The Self-Love (Book) Club
We don’t want to face who we really are inside, nor do we want to face the problems we have in life. Because of that, we can’t handle the silence. Instead of making the choice to just look inside and deal with what’s going on, we run from it.
What Appears To Be
I never felt worthy of love, so it was hard for me to see myself as lovable. I always felt love was conditional. I’ve been doing the work, digging in and really looking at the messages I’ve received and integrated, especially the ones that are false. I’ve done lots of breathwork to release those old, untrue messages. But still, there was a glimmer of “not enough” always flashing on the dashboard of my life.
The Only Way Out Is Through
Someone may look put together, have a fancy car, a nice house and, in the meantime, their entire world is caving in. Or maybe they look rebellious, but under that tough exterior is a mound of vulnerability and pain. People can be pushy, obnoxious, controlling, and inside they are just terrified. We don’t know.
I stopped turning to Xanax for help, I stopped needing a glass of wine to fall asleep, and I started learning how to have healthy boundaries and live life in my own lane. I began being able to love more freely, because I was grounded in my own self-love.
