Are You Holding Back From Yoga Because of Your Size?

I know that sometimes, no matter what anyone says, we can be really hard on our own body.  We may hear other people say that yoga is for all body types and sizes, but somewhere in our own head, we doubt ourselves.  Here is a great article from Valerie Sagun via +The Huffington Post, sharing here experience with yoga in a large body.

Have You Tried Self Love Through Yoga Selfies?

I love the simple steps that +Vivienne McMaster​ gives in this post, to help us connect with our bodies through self portraiture. This is her area of expertise and she's paired up with +CurvyYoga​ to help teach the power of yoga selfies. This is another tool to add to your body relationship tool box!
#yoga #curvyyoga #yogaforall #SeeBodyLoveSelf #tf 
Yoga Selfies.What does that bring up in your mind?For me, until recently it brought forth a vision of the typical yoga selfie I had been getting used to seeing. A woman who's body fit completely into the so called acceptable realm of the 'fit body type' that we'd classically see in a Yoga…

Are Women Beginning To Shop Based On Self Care Rather Than Apperance?

"The Times cites a 7 percent drop in the sale of thongs over the past year, compared to a 17 percent increase in sales of full-bottomed underwear. The real takeaway is that women, no matter their shape or size, should wear whatever underwear they like -- be it thong, brief or otherwise, as long as they feel comfortable in it."

Physical issues are often symptomatic of underlying beliefs or emotions trying to get our attention as well. It is said that our 'biography becomes our biology.' From small discomforts to chronic pain, the body calls us to awakening, to look inward to feelings from the past that keep us from full capacity living in the present. Our physical and mental aspects are inseparable, so to be holistic Yoga Therapy must address both.
#ft #yoga #yogatherapy #holistichealth 
As more and more doctors are recommending yoga for a variety of health conditions, the physically therapeutic benefits have become indisputable. However, Yoga Therapy can also be approached from a spiritual rather than physical standpoint, addressing holistic needs in mind and soul as well as body.Through the spiritual approach, the entire science of yoga as written about in the Yoga Sutras is employed, not just the physically restorative posture...

I used to not like yoga because I couldn't do the poses like others in class so I stopped going. Thank you +Krystal Thompson​ for showing us it's not always about that and we bigger bodied ladies can reap the benefits regardless!!!

Can You Have Negative Feelings About Your Body and Still Love It?

Sometimes I feel sadness about my body.

YES! It's something we all have in common, but we rarely speak about it, because it can be difficult to feel and challenging to share.
Unhappy feelings about our body is normal, and it happens to all of us...even me.

But how can we manage those feelings and still learn LOVE what we see in the mirror?

Story

Advocating for holistic wellness through a healthy and loving relationship with body and self.
Introduction
A Certified Holistic Health Coach and #BodyImage expert. The Body Relationship Coach™, advocating for healthy relationship with body and self. 

See Body. Love Self.  was born from my own life experiences with body hate, body abuse, and body bullying due to lack of resources and support.  I faced body challenges related to my body since an early age.  After understanding just how much my relationship with my body impacted my life story, I realized it was necessary to reach out and empower others with my experiences.  As I have journeyed from a negative body relationship to one of enlightenment, I am continuously learning to love myself and my body along the way.  My joy is in helping others discover a healthy, loving relationship with their own bodies and heal from these pain points:

  • Body Hate- feeling strong and consistent anxiety or negative feelings about your body or body parts
  • Body Shame- having negative feelings around your body, that you keep hidden and secret
  • Body Comparison - consistently looking at others and feeling that your own body is not as beautiful, special or physically adequate
  • Body Bullying- mental, emotional, or physical suffering as a result of ridicule or embarrassment about your body

I enjoy a wide range of topics and activities. However, I am most passionate about: 

  • Body Image
  • Body Love
  • Self Love
  • Body Positive Lifestyle
  • HAES- Healthy at Every Size
  • PCOS Awareness
  • Health and Wellness
  • Holistic Living
  • Holistic Wellness
  • Intuitive Eating 
  • Entrepreneurship 
  • Virtual Connections
  • Global Connections
  • Wanderlust
  • Women's Empowerment

I thrived through over 25 years of body hate to evolve into a body love activist! I'm a miracle!
