Yoga and body modifications

Let’s start with a little reminder.
Before starting Yoga, I’ve been struggling for years with weight issues and bad self acceptance. Almost twenty years of struggling, with bad life issues, worst was my mother’s death when I was sixteen. Low self confidence, weight issues… Then this wonderful first steps in the hot room. It was really violent to face yogis with amazing bodies, amazing balance and flexibility, and even worse to face myself in the mirror. And this first class ever healed almost everything all in once.

First one was needles phobia, I first had some check ups with blood tests, then… Tattoos, and now a couple of piercings…
It is said that body is a temple. I had this struggling in mind, then decided to decorate the walls of this temple… I’m not trying to push any one with confidence or acceptance issues to do the same. I just found a way for me, with body and mind reunited thanks to Yoga, to take control again of my body, of my life. Body can also be seen as a journal, you can now read a bit of my story on my body. I know Bikram doesn’t like tattoos, and I can understand for it can be seen as a violent act against body, to me it’s been a wonderful support to enjoy this body again, to accept myself, to heal my mind. With those decorations I see a better self in the mirror, I even enjoy it. And with Yoga now, I’m proud of being inspiring for people around, and so grateful to be surrounded and inspired by all of you!!
With all my love
PS why a dragon? We just ended year of the dragon, and my chinese sign is the fire dragon… It’s said that years of the dragon are years of big transformations, perfect time for me huh?
