On Saturday morning I went to Vinyasa- flow yoga and I had a moment of feeling empowered in my body.
As I took up childs pose in the middle of what was a sweaty and tasking enough class, I remembered fondly being in that same class, in the same position but with a baby in my belly at 37 weeks pregnant.
It was a lovely moment of pause.
In my next breath I reminded myself that this body I am pushing through it’s paces may carry extra squidgy bits on my hips, my back and elsewhere- but it has housed, grown and sustained three human beings.
With Father’s day just past and a general sense that women need to perfect their bodies to stay young and appealing, it is important to stop, reflect and appreciate what we have.
Whether you grew some babies in your tummy or not, your body is amazing!
It carries you through, it fights sickness as best it can, it squeezes into the ever changing wardrobe we call “fashion”, and it has a heart that beats to the rhythm of life. Take a moment to thank it.
