Olivia 3. Letting go

Coming from the fitness world, there’s always a little bit of ego when it comes to achieving poses or pushing yourself.

But one of the most enlightening points from YTT was during the lesson on body alignments. There are just some things your body wasn’t meant to do or just have more difficulty doing. And rather than stewing over it or getting injured in order to achieve something, why not embrace it and work on the root problem (most of the time it would be body alignment).

For the longest time, I was having a lot of trouble with my squats. No matter what I did, I would never increase the squat weight past a certain number. And it started to feel intense pain in my knees. That’s when the cue “tucking in your ribs” made the world of a difference.

I’ve had to let go of my ego and relearn how to squat. No regrets there though! I feel a lot more comfortable and confident in my squat than I ever was before.
