Yoga is such a healing practice, and it has helped me to be ok with my body. I'm working on acceptance and gratefulness for where I am, and I'm working on quitting treating my body as a battlefield. It's a wonderful experience. Imagine, after a lifetime of despising my body and its perceived failures, finally accepting it. I'm not at the point of loving my body yet, but I havedefinitely moved on from hating it, and myself. So not only the physical benefits are huge, but the psychological benefits are gargantuan.
I hope I haven't sickened everyone too much, it's just so new to actually like myself I want to shout it from the rooftops! And share with everyone, so that they might experience the wonders of yoga too.
I have spent the entire morning of this *school closed because of the gigantic storm in southern Ontario* day surfing the Yoga Journal website. It's officially my new favourite website, check it out...www.yogajournal.com
I hope everyone is safe and snug,
Namaste (the light in all of us)
Nicole, yogini extraordinaire....or at least on the way ;D
