Sheri——If I could share any one important thing I found in this practice - it’s self-acceptance and love
If I could share any one important thing I found in this practice - it’s self-acceptance and love.
I got into yoga briefly, looking for something new. Something to help with my medical hardships. It didn’t resonate with me at first. Years later I tried classes again and realized I wasn’t utilizing my time on the mat the right way. It was a form of movement only to me at first, but it really was much bigger than that. In the beginning, I struggled with keeping up, my body ached, all my anxieties from my thoughts such as my need-to-do list, and it was hard to focus...
soon learning to utilize that space as a place to surrender it all. I enjoyed exploring my body’s boundaries and exceeding my expectations. The real treasure though was peeling back the layers and unburdening myself. Doubt, lack of confidence, and judgment dissipated. I found myself. I learned to embrace my own self, flaws and all. I never spoke kind of my body and yoga started a journey of self-love and personhood ( living in and for myself) then advancing into a yogi hood. ( a community of beautiful people who helped me build confidence and inspired me beyond measure. My mat is a home of refuge where I can be myself. )
