I am @landingonmyfeet an amputee runner from Copenhagen & I have become a huge fan of yoga since my girlfriend finally convinced me that I was capable, or should at least give it a try, before concluding that I could not do it

.


So on our trip to Denver (US) ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ this summer we found a yoga retreat in the Rocky Mountains & went for it. And I absolutely loved it! โค๏ธ

.

I was so surprised how much I could do & had one of those moments where I realized that the limitations we believe we have are truly only in our mind, and can be overcome and changed. ๐ŸŒŸ

.


My concern about yoga in the first place, was showing up to a room full of flexible, head standing, downward dog-ing yogis, & a teacher that did not understand my situation. But over and over again, all I met was 100% acceptance & respect for showing up, & a warm welcome to be part of a something in that particular class and to challenge myself - just like every other person in that yoga class. ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ง

The thing about yoga is that no matter who you & and what your limits or constrains are today, a good yoga teacher will embrace (or even be excited about) your presence & honor the fact that you set out to challenge your limitations & your mind through something new. This is what yoga is all about. Grateful to one of these yoga teachers @susie_dekdoi ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ
