I only have one body, and I have made a conscious decision to love it.
The conscious love process began when my body was far from the expectations of shape and fitness levels that media tells us are desirable. I didn't know if I ever was going to be a size 12, but I did know that this body would be my lifetime companion, and I didn't want to spend that lifetime in judgement and disgust.
I am fortunate to have found the spark that ignited my fire, the Nia Technique. From the simplicity of stepping with my heel first, rolling my body weight off the whole plantar fascia and off my big toe, to the more complex patterns that keep my brain engaged and stimulated. If you have found your spark, keep it alive and honour your precious lifetime companion. If you haven't, there is no time like this moment to step into a movement practice suitable for every body, every age, that could literally change your life.
Here's to love and joy.
