So here it is my friends, I have always had a difficult time with my body image. I’ve struggled as a teenage girl who was sexually abused and never had the opportunity to experience growing up as a sexually healthy teenager. Recently in May 2018 was diagnosed with PTSD from this teenage trauma I experienced. I kept it a secret for over 30 years! I wake up most mornings criticizing my body image and have never embraced my body as something beautiful and free. Today I chose to not let my story define me but rather embrace the freedom to flourish into becoming who I really am because of it. I am now turning 45 in December and have chosen this amazing challenge of self acceptance. I will be posting nude yoga postures that have been done tastefully. I invite anyone else to challenge their comfort zone and self expression. Let’s be free together!!! Photo credit goes to my best friend in life Dani Tarini

So these are the other photos that were taken Friday the beginning of my self acceptance journey! Behind the scenes story for that day. I woke up feeling like I didn’t want to face the world that day, just wanted to stay in bed. I had signed myself in for a yoga class and I believe in showing up when I commit to something so that’s what got me out of bed. I went to class and told Dani about the nude yoga challenge I was going to do and she said okay let’s go in the studio and get this party started…lol. Off we went, I made rules though, she wasn’t aloud to look until I was in posture and I needed a blanket to cover me in between postures. In each posture I did catch myself being embarrassed and picking on my less favourable body issues. The beauty was I was seeing how I was communicating with myself inside. I have committed to weekly naked photo shoots every Friday with each week I challenge myself with constantly covering up and not allowing another female look at me naked. I’ve always changed behind closed doors in public changing areas. I will continue to challenge the thoughts and allow my true self to shine through.
