There’s a definitive ideal of what the ‘perfect’ body should be. Tall, slim, feminine and symmetrical. Anything that doesn’t conform to this vision of a ‘good’ physique is cast as bad. And so a simple fixation on coming to terms with our personal hang-ups doesn’t shift the global mindset towards valuing all bodies in general. It doesn’t call into question why some bodies deserve more than others. It doesn’t challenge why our differences are considered flaws at all.
Body positivity means to banish false perceptions of beauty and develop a safe space where all bodies, no matter what, are equal. No matter shape, size, age, ethnicity, or physical ability. Honouring this conversation means avoiding further shaming through comparisons, derogatory labels and putting some bodies on a pedestal. All bodies are good bodies. All bodies are positive.
Becoming body positive isn’t simple. Not by a long shot. Finding unadulterated self-love every day is tough when we’re surrounded by pressures continually demanding that we transform and conform. But shifting the conversation away from the ‘wrong’ in ourselves to the wrong in the way society treats diverse bodies may just have a more powerful effect in celebrating every body, and give us more peace when striving to love our own.
Your body is not the problem. It never was.

Children are happy because they don’t have a file in their minds that things could go wrong. Life is a choice that you make every day to change and empower yourself. Choose to be true, to be positive and to be happy. No matter what. The best part of waking up every morning is you have a new opportunity to become a better version of yourself. Happiness, love, acceptance, kindness, change starts with us not our jobs, money, others but with us.

Check it out i am failing over and over again. My practice has no perfection. I am a girl that stands up every day and fails till she learns it. I have a zillion reasons why I can’t I don’t have a yoga teacher, I cannot afford classes, I don’t have time, I am a parent…. but I am not my excuses if I was I wouldn’t be here today in front of you failing. I am not beautiful enough, I am not smart enough, I can’t compare to the others. If believe these thoughts we all continually have so will my daughter. That won’t do.
We are not perfect, we never will be. We have a million excuses, but we have a million reasons why we can. Here I am today standing up for my dreams in all imperfections of practice and physical body and mind. My question to you is will you?
Is your life worth more than your excuses and regrets? Unfuck yourself be who you were before all that stuff happened that dimmed your fucking shine.

Life is right now, in this glorious moment right in front of you. I believe that if you are not allowing yourself to be happy right NOW, nothing external in the future is going to change that permanently. In fact, there was a very interesting study done by Phillip Brickman, Dan Coates, and Ronnie Janoff-Bulman. These researchers studied both lottery winners and individuals who had become paralyzed to determine if winning the lottery made them happier or if sustaining an injury made them less happy. What they found was that immediately after either event, levels of happiness were higher (lottery winners) or lower (physically injured), and that after 8 weeks or less, people returned to the level of happiness they had before the event! This type of research shows us that we adapt to both “good” and “bad” external changes very quickly and often return to our old level of happiness within just a couple of weeks. “Happiness is a skill, not an acquisition.” —Barbara De Angelis

When you are fully present with whatever it is you are doing, something interesting happens. When you are present, you are literally going to see your limiting beliefs as they come out of nowhere and try to take control of your behavior. The more awareness you bring to the present moment, the more you will realize there are all sorts of negative beliefs running in the background. These are the programs you don’t usually notice because you are either in the past or the future. “Let us not look back in anger or forward in fear, but around in awareness.” —James Thurber Most of us are constantly in the past or the future, and we don’t even realize how little time we actually spend in the present. Some examples of this: • We visit a beautiful place and are so busy taking pictures to show our friends that we completely miss the experience of the actual location we are photographing. • We have long conversations while being completely unaware of the actual conversation; instead, we are thinking about what we are going to do later. • We lie in bed after a long day and instead of just being there, we are busy planning what we are going to do the next day, despite the fact that we have been looking forward to lying in bed all day long. • We finally get the promotion we have been waiting on for so long and instead of enjoying the raise we just got, we start worrying about what might happen if we don’t live up to the new job description. • After justifying why we really deserve to eat a meal of junk food, we finally decide to go for it. Instead of just enjoying it, however, we are busy thinking about how many calories we need to burn as a result of eating this meal. • We sit and meditate, and instead of just sitting in silence, we are thinking about when we will reach a calm and relaxed state of mind.

When we get in arguments over who is right, our ego takes over and it usually gives us nothing but suffering. The funny thing is, most people don’t even understand that they are not really arguing with a person when they get caught in a heated discussion. What’s really going on is that their beliefs are arguing with the beliefs of the person in front of them. Does it really matter what random belief is right? You have people arguing about whether the lion is really the king of the jungle, and while they are stressing and fussing, the lion is lying somewhere in the savannah enjoying life. The lion doesn’t care whether it is the king, so why do you? Only by understanding that it is all just meanings and representations will you be free to create new and more empowering interpretations. “Seeing is not believing; believing is seeing. You see things not as they are, but as you are.” —Eric Butterworth

Extra tips
So here is a few things to keep in mind to help you float into your growing awesomeness. Each day I read and watch and then make note of things that need more explanation so I hope this helps your awesomeness grow so grateful for you all🙏

Tip 1:
If you want to feel your hip flexors work in the core you must suck them to centre. You must begin with small steps where you feel the core instead of trying to do the end results when you feel only your quads working.
Tip 2:
Think of a crow position where your back is rounded but your shoulders are down and your core is working with straight arm scapular strength.
Tip 3:
You are all awesome become more awesome so grateful for you all.

Day 6: Back body builders
These were a real love hate for me and game changer. Once I started opening my back body with strength my control came before I did that I was always the banana back frustrated looking up at the ceiling wondering what went wrong. Back body flexibility and strength is a game changer.
