“There is freedom waiting for you,
On the breezes of the sky,
And you ask "What if I fall?"
Oh but my darling,
What if you fly?” e.h.
Erin Hanson has some wonderful poetry which have inspired me over the years. The words above inspired me to open the studio and are one of the reasons I took the chance. We all hear the little voice in the back of our head that can talk us out of taking a chance, making a move, or going all out into any endeavor. In times of opportunity, list all the cons and listen to all of the difficulties but then think 'What if I fly?'
When we have a consistent yoga practice, it creates a space for our mind to silence all of the negative voices. At the same time, our pranayama, or yogic breathe is reducing cortisol (the stress hormone) and increasing serotonin (the happy feel good hormone). This can create confidence and positive self image. You might even learn to fly...
