How to Be Okay with Being You

Updated: Feb 4

Channel your inner BADASS that speaks your truth


It's no secret that when you're authentically you, you're putting yourself out there and being vulnerable. You're expressing yourself from your heart knowing that there are people out there who don't share the same views as you do. Some may choose to let you know they don't agree. You still put yourself out there anyway. You handle their disagreement with grace.


Your truth isn't up for debate, and you respect others opinions that may be different from yours. You can be diplomatic while still staying true to your beliefs and your heart.


This is how it goes sometimes when you let people know who you are what what you stand for. The beauty is that you'll also meet likeminded souls out there who share the same views as you and resonate with you so deeply.


Yoga really is about connection, and that happens when you can be yourself and accept yourself. How will you build a true connection with others if you don't open up and speak your truth?


Life is so short, and it's much more fun when you get to share your reality with likeminded peers. You'll only find them when you speak your truth. 💖


Do some BADASS YOGA with me this week and find your power! We'll move through a fun flow that will challenge your core to engage. You'll strengthen your core and increase your stability and strength.


This week's class sequence is listed at the end of this blog post!


AB TWISTS are one of my favourite ways to work into the core and a great way to add a bit of heat to an already warm flow practice. Core work like AB TWISTS will strengthen your core in a short amount of time.
