"In our culture, we are bombarded by messages reinforcing the current trend in body shape and size. And that’s all it is: a trend that has turned into a huge fear of fat."
What you fear will appear. What you resist will persist.
"Contrary to the trend, yoga is not about, and has never been about, becoming a supermodel or a gymnast. Physical yoga is simply a means of perfecting the body and its functions to get it out of the way. The body is changeable. Yogis have known this for thousands of years."
"Begin thinking and feeling for yourself. How does your body feel? Decide for yourself how you want to improve your experience of yourself. Don’t worry about your audience or your critics. If you feel good, anyone who sees you will be drown to you, no matter what your shape and size."
