  • The Sonima Foundation posted a sweet collection of yogis to help dispel the myth of the singular “yoga body.” With each photo is a short blurb from the individual. Here’s part of Karen G’s from Portland, Oregon.

“I came to yoga in high school in a body I wished to abandon. Since surgery at age 11, and ongoing rare medical conditions, my body felt like it had failed. When joining in with Lilias! Yoga and You on TV after school, I felt like all my nerves and muscles were smoothed down, like the feathers of a bird, and I could deeply relax. I found wholeness.”
