No 2 Bodies are the Same – Choose Love as in Self Love / Body Love!!

 

Your body hears everything your mind says.

     –  Naiomi Judd

Being sexy is all about attitude, not body type.  It’s a state of mind.

     –  Amisha Patel

Embrace and Love your body – it’s the most amazing thing you’ll ever own!

     –  unknown

Don’t let your mind bully your body!!

Life is way too short to spend it fighting with your body or yourself!!

 

Mind – Body – Soul

Be in the Vibe of Love – it starts with Self Love

 

If one stops to think about it – everything we do we do for our bodies – or mostly anyways.  We eat to feed our bodies – our bodies are real – are you feeding it real foods?  We work to house our bodies – provide a home and warm bed to sleep in.  We buy cars or ride bikes to get our bodies from place to place or to work.  We dress our bodies in clothes to go to work or outside – depending on the weather and in our society we need to cover up :).  We exercise to move our bodies.

Are you doing any of those for your Soul? Probably not, but for the body.  Yet we are not our bodies.

How do you talk to your body? Kind loving words? or Judgement and criticism?  Do you put clothes on your body that it likes and what feels good or what you thin it should wear?  Do you starve your body? Over eat? Over drink? Never let it have some fun?  Do you spend most of your time pissed off at it, wanting to change it or love it as it is?

I’ve been there – I know and once I let go and crossed over it all became much easier and clearer

Just some things to think about!!

Yoga

I have done Yoga off and on since my early 20’s but never fully committed – seems to be an issue for me in a few areas but that’s a different post! 🙂

You may or may not know but I just did Yoga Teacher Training and I did so more for personal reasons – intuitively I knew the timing was right and boy was I right!!

On many levels I was ready to take this to a deeper level, yet it helped me move through much in my personal life as well.  Not to mention I met and have been meeting some amazing Yogi’s because of it.  I have started an awesome Photo Yoga project that I will share some of the details soon – these people are truly amazing beings!  They take their Yoga off the mat which I solve and respect!

One of the reasons the timing was awesome is I have been able to slow down in my life.  Now that doesn’t mean you can’t slow down with Yoga but I so realize how much I was speeding through life, living and the things I was doing.  I could have never done a Yin Class a couple of years ago and now it’s one of my favourite and what I will be teaching mostly.

Why?

It helps slow us down, connect us with our bodies, our breath AND our emotions – perfect for people especially women who have a million things to do, look after everyone else, have a hard time being inter bodies or even liking them, emotional eating or dealing with emotions – you can’t run and hide form them when they come up as you hold a pose.

It’s all good as they want to leave anyways – you get lighter, freer and feeling so much dam better about you, yourself, your body and life.

Yoga in general helps to be more present.

Yoga helps one to get out of the head and be more present and in the body which can be hard for some of us.

I look serious I know but I was concentrating 🙂

I love the movement, the outdoor palapa’s (here in Mexico anyways), how I can focus on me – I close my eyes as much as possible – I am not looking around at who’s able to do what or if they are better than me or what they are wearing – which I am finding out has become part of Yoga – not in my world!!

I also listen each day to my body more – some days I am very flexible, others not so much, some days I can try almost anything and maybe hold the pose and other days not a chance – each time is different, preparing us for living each day!

Yoga has been there many times in my life for me, I just wasn’t always able to really slow down and take it in.  Now I am in even much more deeper way than I ever thought would happen.

It also made me realize I still have much to learn.

Isn’t that what living is truly about??

All I know is my body loves it, my mind needs it and better breathing is essential!!

Why do you do Yoga?
