A handbook for the self–a compassionate, honest, and personal guide to empowering yourself, and others, for a safer and more inclusive world.
BEING A TEENAGER can be a beautiful time in your life. But it can also be one filled with self-doubt, worries, and complicated relationships. Focusing on school and activities, friendship and family, feeling comfortable in your body, knowing and celebrating who you are in this world–it’s hard to do all at once. Sometimes it may feel as though you’re not doing it right, or that you don’t know how to do it. Sometimes you may feel alone, and like you don’t fit in–because you don’t look like other people, or because you’re not the “right” size or shape or skin color. It’s tough to feel like you belong when so many things, like social media and the internet, are telling you that you don’t.
Girlvana will inspire you to connect with your body, mind, and community to become the best possible version of yourself. Using the ancient teachings of yoga and the foundations of meditation and breathwork, this book will teach you to explore yourself from the outside in–to honor your body, to invite and accept your feelings, to work through tough conversations and negative thoughts–to develop self-acceptance and self-love.
