Open your heart and feel the love inside you.
Always remember the yoga pose is not the goal. Touching your toes is not the goal. The goal is to create space where you were once stuck. To unveil the layers of protection you have built around your heart. To appreciate who you have become & become aware of the mind & the noise it creates. The goal is to feel, not accomplish, to make peace with who you are. The goal is to love….. YOU
