Your body is an extension of yourself.
It is an extension of your heart.
As you raise your arms to the sky,
You are extending yourself up to the heavens.
As your lips curl up into a smile, your heart brightens.
A forward bend is more than just a fold at the hips.
It's surrender-- a salute to the self.
When a part of your body aches,
The issue is so much more than physical pain.
Stop and ask yourself what has been going on lately?
Have you been pushing yourself too hard?
Have you been practicing self-care?
What about your heart? How does that feel?
If you stop and think about it, most pain begins within first.
Pushing ourselves beyond our boundaries begins within.
When we feel unworthy, unloved, or as if we must prove our worth to others,
That's in the heart.
So remember to dig deep.
Continue to check in with the heart often.
Your body is you.
Every breath, every stretch, every bend,
Is a manifestation of your magnificence.
