It’s a journey. It wasn’t until I loved myself exactly as I was, that my body began to blossom and manifest to show a reflection of all the self love and self care I put into it. Eliminating the junk- not just junk food, but negative relationships and situations. By being true to myself and doing what I felt was best- I was able to make a new best friend- Me.

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.

If you want to beggin to practice yoga but don’t know how, these are my tips for start to practice yoga at home!

Sometimes we don’t know how to start and we start to do advanced poses and that make us feel so discouraged because we have trouble with the poses and at the end we get hurt and without any energy to try it again, so check these tips that i give you before you begin.

All body types can do yoga!, you don’t have to be super skinny or super flexible, you can start just now:

  • How can I start?
  • I just eat, how much time i need to wait?
  • Where can I practice?
  • How beggin my practice? 
  • What kind of poses or videos can I do?
  • About ladies holidays?
  • Trust in you!
