What Yoga Sees

“I see you; you think you are too fat for yoga. You tried me once but everyone was smooth and skinny. I see how your heart and body hurt, you want to move and stretch but you hate how you feel in your own skin. “

“I see you; you think yoga is slow and boring. You like to run and sweat. You tried me once but your brain was screaming at you to move your ass. I see how your heart and body hurt, you want silence and rest but you hate how you feel in your own head.”

“I see you; you want to try yoga. You are shy and new. You would try me but I’m so foreign and everyone mandala with eyesknows each other already. I see how your heart and body hurt, you want to smile and move but you hate how you feel in your own heart.”

“I see you; you feel too tight for yoga. You tried me once but everyone was so bendy and loose. I see how your heart and body hurt, you want to stretch like a cat and feel light but you hate how you feel in your own ego.”

Yoga sees you, she sees all of us. Yoga knows we feel fat, mental, tight and shy. She knows that some days we feel overstretched like a guitar string both emotionally and physically. She sees us on the days we need to move and breath or the days we need quiet and peace. She sees us when we need to go out on a limb and meet new people. She sees us when we need to drop our egos, come to our knees and be humble. Yoga wants us to have ALL that we need. She wants to teach us to love our bodies, quiet our minds, lengthen our muscles and be brave. She knows it’s hard and we feel like shit. Yoga loves us anyway. She loves us when we tell people we hate yoga… because you only hate yoga till you love it.

She sees that, she knows you, she loves you anyway you are.
