We often have a one-sided conversation with the pain in our bodies— the pain says, "I'm here!"
And for some reason, we allow it to stay. wtf.
With yoga we explore how our muscles and
bones are designed to move and we become
curious about the parts that
feel tight or in pain.
This is the first step towards understanding our physical pain.
It's also the first step towards healing the pain
and the emotional components
we attach to it.
