How do you view your body?
Is it a mother for your children, a protector? A clay model to be sculpted as you wish? Or a group of moving muscles that need to be pushed in directions that will take you to your goals?
Or is it a home for your mind?
Yoga sessions stretch you out, improving flexibility, they force you to hold yourself in bizarre contortions which work your muscles to wobbling point.
However, throughout most sessions, you’ll be told to be kind to yourself, to listen to your body, and appreciate it for what it can do, not for what it can’t YET do. Yoga encourages you to see your body in a positive light, and to celebrate its abilities, and potential.
