Moving with the Breath

I still see myself as a beginner at some things when it comes to my yoga practice.

It’s your body that heals itself when it’s awakening. It’s your mind that heals itself when it’s changing perception. Magic happens when we open ourselves up to possibilities and experiences. Even if those experiences hurt– it’s still healing. It’s still growing.

Change is always constant– how about we choose what we change into, instead of going with the default.

I am committed to change for the better!
