I Am A Yogini, I Am Me

I am a yogini. I try my hardest to do half an hour of yoga a day.

I am me. Sometimes, I don’t get out of bed until 11, and then play video games all day!

I am a yogini. I try to make sure my body gets all the nutrients it needs.

I am me. I sometimes order takeout pizza and chill for the evening with a glass of wine.

I am a yogini. I believe in the value of life, and that it all should be treated with respect.

I am me. I know full well that I could never become Vegan or Vegetarian, so I look for sustainable sources of meat and fish when I do purchase them.

I am a yogini. I own expensive yoga gear, funky leggings, a good sports bra and suitably ass-lifting undies.

I am me. I’m just as comfortable doing yoga in my PJs, with no make-up, even when my boyfriend is over.

I am a yogini. I do yoga in a proper studio, with a class, and I really enjoy it.

I am me. I equally enjoy doing my yoga at home in my living room, having a laugh with a friend at the same time.

I am a yogini. I can reach places of incredible peace and serenity, places that soothe my soul.

I am me. I am also still perfectly capable of blowing up over the smallest things.

I am a yogini. I aim to have my best control over my body and demonstrate grace and poise.

I am me. I have Tourettes, causing me sometimes severe facial twitches. I don’t care, and refuse to be embarrassed by it.

I am a yogini. I have met people who judge me based on my flexibility, on my size, on my diet, on my Tourettes, and on what I wear.

I am me. I don’t care what these people think, because it doesn’t matter if someone looks right, has perfect posture, is 100% vegan and has never had a lazy day in their life. There is one truth that makes a yogini a yogini. And it is this:

 

I am proud of who I am; all negatives, positives, and grey areas included.

 

I am a Yogini.

I am me.

I am happy.
