I’ve hung onto this photo for awhile now.
Waiting for when it felt right to share it, to share so much of myself.
It also took a long time to be OK with it. I am still healing from past insecurities, the voice in the back of my mind telling me all the reasons why I should be ashamed of my body.
But part of process of healing is to step out there. Not listen to the voice in the back of your mind, but to listen to your heart.
Stretch marks, cellulite, rolls, little extra fat in places, none of that matters.
Because we are beautiful. We are strong.
I’m sure I’ll get some flack for this, how this is not Yoga or how it is all for vanity.
As I always say, you cannot define yoga, and for me and moving through my insecurities, this is yoga because it has allowed me to do so.
If you assume it is for vanity, don't worry as I won't take what you say personally since you do not know me.
Pose inspired by one of my biggest inspirations @rivkayoga
