To become obsessed with how we look and how we appear to others is so human. But it is also human to observe those thoughts and to hold them gently, and with a sense of self-acceptance. Whatever form we express or body we have, we all have our roots in the same "spiritual earth." - Judith Hanson Lasater #yogarisingbook

“I'm making yoga accessible by providing a fun and intimate yoga space where my students have access to a variety of yoga tools that will help them find their pose, their ease, their way back to themselves.

“I am making yoga accessible simply by being part of the small representation of black women within the yoga community. I make yoga more accessible for other black women who have been led to believe that there are not safe spaces for us to reap the benefits of healing and growth from the practice too. My name is Melody, I’m a citizen of the world, and this is what a yogi looks like.” #Repost @_mel_xo ・・・ @ybicoalition #idyaccessibleyoga #idy2018accessibleyoga #blackgirlyoga #melaninyogaproject #representationmatters #internationalyogaday #internationaldayofyoga #namaste 🙏🏾

#Repost @touch_of_yoga ・・・ I’ve been so inspired by this book that I brought it to class this morning @yoga_noho and we talked about how yoga is not perfection, it’s a practice, as Dana A. Smith says in Yoga Rising “Yoga has a history, it has its mars as we do, but it is a growing, living science embedded in the heart of human awareness, and it will grow with us and in us as we commit to growing within it.” “The journey of self-love and acceptance is yoga.” This is just one quote of the many amazing stories shared in this book. Thank you so much @melmelklein for putting these stories together, I will hold them close to my heart forever. #yogarisingbook #bodyimagecoalition #thisiswhatayogilookslike #yogateacher #everybodyisayogabody #heartopener #backbend #greatbook #yogabook
