Oh yoga, what have you done to me?
You have completely changed how I view myself and have made me think of my body in a whole new light.
I’ve always wanted that “fit” look. Being that I’m 31 years old and had a kid. I definitely don’t have that body I had when I was in my 20’s or pre baby. I’ve always been the weight lifting type of chic, and even over the winter season took up a love for running. Never been a cardio person my entire life, except for dancing at raves and clubs when I was in my early to mid 20s.
I don’t know why or how yoga came into my life, but it’s something special to me. It came at the right moment. I care so much about what my body looks from the outside. Im very self conscious and have always had body dismorphia. I can easily say without any shame that I have body issues. I know most women do, especially after having a baby.
For this short amount of time that I have been practicing yoga, whether it be in the studio or at home, I’ve become so fascinated and have completely fallen in love with the beauty and art of it.
Yoga is challenging every bit of me every time I practice. That is the blessing of it. It connects you to your true self. I want to prove to myself that I can do this. I want to be the best version of myself through yoga. I want to connect to my higher self…. Through yoga. And I want to be more spiritual, through yoga.
What has yoga taught you ? How has it changed you?
