Linked above is a lovely infographic by Brene Brown, author of 'The Power of Vulnerability'. In yoga therapy, we access and actively employ our own vulnerability in order to meet the vulnerability of the other. Through yoga, we visit and welcome those places of powerlessness and pain within our own bodies, thus inviting the other towards that same openness, sharing and courage. We do not work for our clients but with our clients, walking alongside and never in-front-of. We recognise that the other person and ourselves are One.

Here's to self-compassion, authenticity, resilience and hope.
