Us women tend to be natural nurturers, giving a lot of ourselves, especially our hearts. Sometimes we give too much leaving not much left, or life events can leave us feeling hurt, sad, and wanting to close off and protect our hearts.
The best thing we can do in these situations is to open our hearts to the support and love that surrounds us, and most of all to reconnect us back into the deeply loving and giving part of ourselves. Just like smiling when you feel sad automatically lifts your mood, opening your heart when you feel least like it will make your heart feel more warm, bright, and receptive, helping you to prevent shutting down and shutting off from your big, beautiful heart.
Your yoga practice can be an incredible support system in your life, helping you to find strength, courage, wisdom and release — there really is a yoga pose for just about every situation and emotion that you find yourself in.
