Women and Yoga

Posted on August 21, 2014 at 10:15 PM
One thing I love about yoga is how it introduced me to my own strength.  I was in teacher training to be a yoga teacher and we were working on handstands.  I had been doing about 15 hours a week of yoga and yoga related activities for several months, so I was stronger physically than I had ever been in my life.  

I was at the wall, practicing handstand and I felt like I could stay there indefinitely.  As I was upside down there, for the first time in my life, I felt my own strength.  In my mind, all I could think was, "I am strong as hell.  I am strong as hell.  I am strong as hell.  I... am strong... as hell.  I'm strong as hell!"  It went around like a mantra in my mind. 

In that moment, I wished that every woman on earth could have that experience. 

If a woman gets into handstand and holds herself there for several minutes, she is unlikely to stay in an abusive relationship for the rest of her life.  She might just turn that relationship upside down and think to herself, "I am strong as hell!"  And then she will be more bold in standing on her own two feet. 

I want women to experience their own strength.  I study yoga in part in order to be able to teach it to women who have been disempowered.  There is something very empowering about being able to hold those poses.  Once you can do that, you think, "Well, maybe I can do these other things, too."  And then you try.  Empowered.  Yes.
