Spreading Words of Wisdom Through Yoga
Heidi says, “It was in this situation of mental illness in which I found Yoga and grace. By trying various yoga poses, I found a safe place again. A sense of self-acceptance and peace.”
Her saying this explains it all.
Focussing on Survival by Posing Like a warrior from The Star
Heidi says that in her early ages, she used to imagine warriors as the people who fight using swords. But the time taught her that the warriors are those who discover things on their own and survive everything that seems impossible. They may look fragile, but they are survivors from within because they know how to rise and shine.
Heidi further says, “People always question your path. They comment, criticize, and compare until you come to your breaking point. At another point, we turn around and thank them for the blunder they’ve created. Because it’s the wind from which we learn to fly.”
Emphasizing The Thought of Being Alien to a Place
After she witnessed a rape, she wrote, “After a girl has been adulterated, a term we use to describe it: “She has lost her innocence.” This is the reason why women feel incredibly guilty after being raped, even if it’s not their fault.
She continued, “If I’m no longer innocent, what is left then but to feel as though I am somehow to blame? After I was raped, I kept feeling like I needed to apologize. For not being good enough. For not knowing what to do. For not realizing that the thing which was happening was, rape. For not intending to use such a term to describe it. For not using the word at all. For being in the inappropriate place at the incorrect time. For “letting” it to happen. For not being capable of pushing him off of me even after I asked him to stop, again and again.”
Her; being alien to the place’ pose promoted a thought that people shouldn’t be concerned about what others say. Instead, they should focus on themselves.
Delivering Different Meanings with Different Poses
Yoga may hold different importance to different people. Some people do it to boost stamina, some to get relieved from pain, and some to be in shape. Heidi Williams has defined Yoga as a blessing.
Dealing a Twisted Life with Twisted Dance
Heidi added an active caption to her picture, “what if her dance was not about you, what if the manner in which she moved, lived, and spoke in the world, was not about you, what if her body was not about you. Let me tell you this; It is not about you.”
Letting go of All the Fears Through Yoga
One of Heidi’s statements explains it all. She says, “I (Heidi) feel the initial rise in blood pressure, and my heart begins racing. My breath has doubled in speed. I feel that my right shoulder has started to tense, sending a trigger point into action, and my head begins to pound. My hands have become sweaty. Two years ago, this would have turned into a major PTSD. Transferring me to hulk mode. Completely shaking, screaming, and begging for that crying to stop. Once it would stop, I would be exhausted as though I had just run for my life from something fearful to kill me.”
Beginning a New Life with Aspirations
Heidi motivates by saying, “The fact that you struggle doesn’t make you a burden. It does not make you undesirable or undeserving. It does not make you too much or too needy or too sensitive. It makes you human only.”
Heidi focusses on the fact that it’s never too late to start again as she did. She passes on the positive vibes to everyone out there in the world.
Every picture of Heidi is an inspiration on its own. She urges to make people adopt Yoga in their lives as soon as possible to be physically as well as mentally stable.
