“Love yourself—accept yourself—forgive yourself—and be good to yourself, because without you the rest of us are without a source of many wonderful things.” ~Leo F. Buscaglia

When was the last time you stood in front of the mirror sharing feelings of contentment? Ever wondered why in this fast-paced life we often disregard to remind ourselves of a primary message – “I love myself”. Positive reinforcement works wonder when it comes to personal development.

To achieve a state of happiness you need execute your mind and body into the beautiful art of yoga. Self-assurance and self-love are the building blocks towards living a blissful life and yoga is the key for unlocking happiness.

  • Unleash your positive energy

    Living in a world plagued by a materialistic definition of beauty we often suffer from minor relapses in our self esteem. Am I too thin? Fat? Dark? Old? The endless lists of complexes keep piling up throwing you in a abyss of mental unrest and depression. If you fail to love yourself as who you are, chances are you are never going to find your heaven on earth. In learning to love ourselves we go beyond our physical and mental limits to see the ultimate truth.

    Practicing yoga will make you retire from the worldly insecurities and distractions so you begin to look at the bigger picture as you build a positive self-image. When experimenting with different yoga postures you will understand your physique better connecting your physical body with your positive state of mind. You begin to discover an inner peace which serves as a bright flame of candle erasing the ills of darkness such as anxiety, stress, tension and every other stigma that served as a hindrance on your road to self-discovery.

    Why is self-love important?

    There is no love more important than the love that you nurture yourself with. We often misinterpret self-love by associating it with negative feelings of being self-centered and egoistic. The truth be told, yoga enhances your mind’s capacity to overrule disapproving feelings by weaving a pathway for self-revolution. Break free from the ugly clutches of this world’s judgmental remarks! Sharpen your senses and concentration so your mind starts looking at the glass as half full instead of half empty. Meditation helps you to harmonize your physical body with your spiritual self giving you a joyful feeling of satisfaction and tranquility.

    Stop hating yourself! It is a vicious cycle damaging your hidden potentials.  Master the art of self-love with yoga and discover the real YOU!
