The 30-day Bikram yoga challenge showed me the transformational power of sweat. It sounds strange I know, but trust me when I tell you that at the end of that 30 days I was a different person. It felt like decade old emotions rolled off my body one drop of sweat at a time.
That’s why when my beautiful yoga teacher CieAna shared the following quote after class the other day, it really hit home.
Sweat is holy water, prayer beads, pearls of liquid that release your past. Sweat is an ancient and universal form of self healing, whether done in the gym, the sauna, or the sweat lodge… The more you sweat, the more you pray. The more you pray, the closer you come to ecstasy. – Gabrielle RothShare on Facebook
