It’s coming to the end of mental health awareness week and, in the studio, in the gentle conversations that often take place after a class, I hear so many stories of why people come to love yoga.
The most often told story is of the transformation that yoga has brought not just physically but to people’s sleep and ability to just ‘do’ life:
“My partner just looks at me now and says go to yoga knowing I’ll be a different person when I come back”.
Amongst my yoga teacher friends, we often share how yoga has been the thing that has helped us through tough times. When you come to your mat, you are welcomed, there is no judgement nor expectation and, if you want to spend your whole practice in child’s pose that is enough because you are more than enough. I leave you with these words. Read them regularly!
