But the statement, ‘I am’, can be a dangerous one.

What if I tell myself, ‘I am unable to do this or that; or I am too much or not enough of something to do what I want’. What if I tell myself, ‘I am unworthy of success, love, peace’? Whether consciously or unconsciously.

An ego-driven identity, defined by the external categories, puts a limit on who we can be and what we can experience in this world.

It makes us search for and ascribe our self-worth to factors outside of us — may that be jobs, achievements, relationships.

‘Who am I’ isn’t found in changing circumstances.

Our self-worth or identity, in the pure sense, aren’t found in our jobs, achievements, and relationships — though of course when our jobs, achievements, and relationships go well, they can fill us in with positive feelings.

Yoga provides a perfect opportunity to re-connect with our core, through poses and mindset.

The moment you step on the mat, you have an opportunity to make each practice your own — not look at what others do in the room, do what feels good for your, and be your own teacher, listening to your body at all times. For every pose, there are at least a few available variations, from which you can choose depending on how you feel on the day.

There’s no right and wrong in yoga, there’s just practice; and each practice gives you a chance to reconnect with your core.
