I’m Megan, a Scottish yoga teacher in training and a self – love activist who wants to show you how yoga can change your mental, physical and spiritual being. This is a short, introductory post where I have narrowed down a few of my main key values so you know what to expect of me and this blog.
Self Love and Female Empowerment
As the saying goes, “behind every successful woman there is a tribe of successful women who have her back.” In a world where perfection seems to be the ultimate goal, it is unsurprising that we as women have become disempowered and have lost our feeling of self worth along the way. Not anymore I say! I want women to learn that yoga can be used as a powerful exercise tool – because moving our bodies feels good – not because we want to lose four pounds to achieve the ‘perfect’ body. I want you to learn how to love the skin you’re in and enjoy how you look now. If you’ve got a body and can breathe (which I hope you can if you’re reading this) then you can do yoga!
Progress Not Perfection
Yoga is known as a practice because you’ll never stop learning. Before I decided to do my yoga teacher training I was nervous about signing up because I didn’t think I was ready. “There are people doing waay more advanced poses than me on Instagram so therefore I’m not ready to become a teacher” was what I would say to myself when I was umming and ahhing about my decision. Thank goodness I was told otherwise and I did take the leap to beginning my training, I haven’t looked back yet! This blog and my practice will grow and mature, improving along the way, so I hope you’ll join me and we can improve together and create a community of yogis trying to better themselves and develop our practice together!
Passion is Everything
The beauty of having this online space to blog is that I have the opportunity to write what I believe are important topics and issues that need to be addressed. I want to create a blog with substance over style and create an educated yogi community of empowered women moving their bodies in a way that makes them feel good both inside and out. I plan on posting midweek twice a month to begin with, giving me time to write genuinely interesting content that I can share with you.
I want this platform to educate women on the benefits of yoga and allow them to develop a better relationship with themselves and boost their physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing allowing them to be the best version of themselves. If you’re interested keep up with me here and over on Instagram @meganalexandra_yoga. What are your core values? I would love to know, leave a comment below!
Until next time,
Let’s be social!
