Yin Yoga & Self-Acceptance
The Yin yoga practice enables us to build a deeper connection with ourselves & can trickle through to greater self-acceptance, which can transpire into our relationships with others.
When you start observing your whole self in a non-judgemental way & with loving compassion. The interconnectivity/mirrors of your interactions/relationships & the fundamental patterns of your life. You can see how your behaviors, decisions, & experiences led to who you are today. From here, you can begin the journey of self-acceptance.
Self-acceptance reminds you that it is ok to be you. We all make mistakes at times…maybe we have become frustrated & lose our calm; we might say the wrong thing, make the wrong decision, or react to an external event in what we feel was not the most positive way. We can be tired, stressed, or worried as examples of all normal feelings that can occur, & that can take us away from staying present.
But when you notice your’ shadow patterns,’ you can decide better if you want to improve things. For example, when you are tired, you may have less patience with people, so you can make a personal decision to take better care of yourself & place a priority on your self-management & needs.
