"I love you" - 3 glorious words that we offer up to our partner, our family, friends, and maybe even to the drycleaners when he finally manages to remove that stain from our favourite piece of clothing...

Ah yes, self-love, that tricky bugger... We find it easier loving and appreciating others than we do ourselves.

The perfectionist and Type A in me always pushed harder and strived more. My ego would surface during every class, ignoring all of my body's signals to slow down and breathe. I realised that I cared way too much about what others thought of me. It was almost as if I was determined to show to all the other practitioners in the room how strong I was, how flexible I was. And did they give a damn? Hell no. It sounds pretty ridiculous when you put it into words. Or maybe it wasn't about the others at all, perhaps I was determined to prove something to myself, out of fear that I would be a failure? Why do...
