Days 5 & 6: puppy pose and dolphin pose. Puppy pose is my favorite ever but I’ve never tried dolphin so it was fun to learn.
I love my arms because even though they’re flabby (nothing wrong with that!) they get stronger every day.
This used to be my hate pose. I once had a Girl push me down so hard in it my disc slipped. For a long time it symbolised and quite literally was a place I didn’t want to go because of the pain. Gradually I Got used to it. Most importantly it happened in my own time, without having to prove anything or having others push me. It’s now one of my favorite poses, the journey into it so far has taught me so much and it’s never ending so the journey continues… yogipeach
6th thing I love about myself: My height! I had been taller than everyone from the first day of school onwards until I reached my second year in middle school. I used to be self conscious about it because my legs were so long plus I was overweight, so I’d be cramped in spaces. I now accept this because there are a lot of perks to being tall!
How to: Stand on your your feet together with your heels firmly on the floor, relax your back by the shoulders backwards, your stomach keep it tight, relax your hands to your sides, relaxes the neck, bend your back forward, keep your knees straight - if hurts or you do not have much flexibility, bend the knees - try to reach the floor with your palms, if you don’t reach that’s ok, now cuddle your legs with your arms, do not force it! relax your back and hold it for 3 to 5 breaths.
I love myself: that I don’t like to judge people, for some reason they are that way.
Day 9- bound angle pose! My little brother decided to join me; he’s my little yogi-in-training ;). I love my tummy because it’s cute and fluffy and does lots of stuff for me like process food and hold my organs.
