I was taking a yoga class for pregnant women. For the first time, I felt what it meant to be relaxed. I understood that so far, I had always lived in a constant state of fear. I was afraid of the sudden expectations and moodiness of my mother then my abusive boyfriends. Thanks to yoga, I took control back over my life. Today yoga is like a deep nourishment for my body and my soul. Yoga helped me to recover from abuse.
