My truth about Yoga

My truth about Yoga

Here's the thing. I first did yoga back in 2001. I was 22, overweight and totally inflexible ( I still struggle to touch my toes now). I spent the whole class berating myself for not being able to hold the poses, for not being flexible enough, for what I'd not done at work that day. [...]
