Why do you do yoga? There are many different answers, but they all share a similar trait: SELF-EMPOWERMENT.
We do yoga to help ourselves heal, to empower ourselves to feel better, to grow our confidence, and to spark our enthusiasm to experience our best selves!
On the mat, you are empowered to try, make mistakes, and still be fully accepted. Your interests are met with gusto; the importance and joy of your hard work are recognized and encouraged. Failure is treated lightly, while curiosity and integrity are held in high regard.
What does empowerment feel like?
Physically, this feeling of self-reliance has a lot to do with our foundation and core strength.
For instance, in downward facing dog pose, your hands are as important as your feet.
