My yoga practice isn’t just a great physical workout, it’s also routine of confronting and working through my emotions.

And maybe it’s because the room is a hundred degrees. Maybe it’s because I’m half naked. Maybe it’s because I’m staring at myself in the mirror for ninety minutes and I have no choice but to work through my own stuff.

But after a few postures, any feelings and emotions and inner struggles that need to be dealt with, are.

Do you have a familiar place you go when you’re feeling scared or anxious or confused or overwhelmed and need to make sense of the world?
