Go ahead, do all the yoga you want, and enjoy it!
AND, consider this.
WHO WOULD YOU BECOME...
...if you moved your body to simply follow and express its organic intelligence, without imposing any forms on it?

I'm done striving to achieve the perfect yoga pose.
I am not saying, don't exercise or be fit.
I AM saying...
I'm done wasting my life worrying about looking a certain way, I'd rather radiate my creative, turned-on aliveness from the inside out.
I'm done trying to obtain a body image that has been sold to me, I'd rather love and celebrate the way I was made.
I'm done wasting my life worrying about having a naturally protruding belly, I'd rather be healthy and breathe openly into my stomach, and infuse my organs with circulation. (please, please, join me in this one!!!!)
I'm done being ashamed of the way my body naturally is, for having wide woman's hips, soft curves, and CELLULITE, (oh that's a hard one) I'd rather enjoy sensual delight.
I'm done NOT being ok if I can't do the perfect yoga pose...
I've spent years in the endless pursuit of perfect forms in yoga, Pilates, martial arts, dance steps, it's endless.
It's been fun, I've enjoyed learning, competing and striving, and there's nothing wrong with that.
Those are also all imposed forms that don't allow my body's natural intelligence to guide the way.
And, when my motivation for striving so hard is rooted in collective shame and insecurity about the natural shape of my female body, it's not serving me or anyone.
Women spend a significant chunk of their life worrying, obsessing about how they look.
I certainly have.
And as much as I want to be "done" with all these things, the deeper truth is...
I STILL STRUGGLE WITH HUGE BODY IMAGE SHAME AND I WANT TO LOVE MY BODY.
So, here's my time-lapsed embodiment practice from this morning, you'll see MY BELLY IS POKING OUT.
I feel ashamed of it!
But I'm not going to hide it.
I felt so wonderful during this practice, and that's what is important and valuable to me.
I want you to SEE and FEEL that with me.

Organic embodiment is one of my top self-care habits.
I get to allow my deepest feelings to move through my body without imposing any forms on it, and then I feel open, grounded and solid in myself.
I train myself to move my body into the things that feel stuck, tense, tight and bothersome, and this creates space for those things to unwind without pushing, without pulling, without effort.
I make space to express my heart through my body in free form, and when I feel the flavors of all the things I desire, and the things that open me, I feel blissfully reminded of how I already have it all inside!
WHO WOULD YOU BECOME?
