Practice authenticity on your yoga mat

I’ve been thinking a lot about authenticity lately. 

As a yoga student and teacher, I’m used to hearing these phrases in yoga classes: “take the variation of the posture that best fits your body in this moment”, “honor where your body is at”, “listen to your body”, “do what you can”, “take what you need from the posture and let the rest go”. 

These phrases are all asking us one thing: be your most authentic self, asana to asana, moment to moment.
