I want to share with you what allows me to have fun at the gym, (hint: the key is to stop thinking about weight loss). I’m hoping you can use these tips to motivate yourself to get on the stair climber, the elliptical, the track, the pool, the basketball court, or the yoga mat. Whatever is fun for you.
What I love about yoga is that its purpose is not fitness or weight loss, it is simply to get your body into a pose and to breathe deeply. To challenge the mind and body and to remain calm throughout the practice, no matter how difficult it is.
This is the beginning of a discussion that I have a deep interest in, body image in today’s world. When I say body image, I am referring to the concept of self image, how people perceive the shapes of their bodies based on the information they receive through the media and other sources
