Self Love


Self-EsteemDr West is there a yoga that helps with self esteem, self acceptance. and self love.   I am 49 years old and have never felt acceptance or approval of myself.  Getting older it get worst, because I feel like everything is going away.

Dear Lisa

Thank you for your question. There are a number of yoga classes and meditations that help with self-acceptance, self-esteem and self-love.

There are a number of yoga classes in the Namaste Yoga line-up that are free on Acceptance.

Namaste Yoga 141: https://www.melissawest.com/namaste-yoga-141-keepin-it-real-yogi-acceptance/

Namaste Yoga 4: https://www.melissawest.com/namaste-yoga-4-yoga-for-acceptance-with-dr-melissa-west/

Yoga for Weight Acceptance: https://www.melissawest.com/namaste-yoga-180/

Yoga for Age Acceptance: https://www.melissawest.com/209/

Here’s a blog post I did on self-esteem: https://www.melissawest.com/self-confidence/

That blog post goes through a number of classes on Namaste Yoga and the membership site that are great for self-esteem.

 

I would add to that class-list, Yoga for Posture, which is all about building confidence.

(It is also available on the membership site).

 

As far as self love, one of the greatest tools I have found to foster self love, is metta meditation, or loving kindness meditation.

May I be filled with loving kindness,

May I be safe and protected

May I be healthy and strong

May I look after myself joyfully

 

We spend a lot of time with building self-acceptance and self love in the mentor with Melissa course: https://www.melissawest.com/yoga-teacher-training/

There is a loving kindness retreat available on the membership site: http://www.drwest.ca/forumdisplay.php?44-Loving-Kindness-Retreat

This class of Namaste Yoga has loving kindness meditation in it: https://www.melissawest.com/namaste-yoga-186/

and so does this one: https://www.melissawest.com/namaste-yoga-174/

That should give you lots of places to start, grow and develop in self-acceptance, self-love and self-esteem.

Namaste, Melissa
