"You have two options: Be yourself or be miserable!" - Rina Jakubowicz

When you're under 5 feet tall, like me, it seems like the whole world looks down on you. We all have that singular challenge in life that causes us to feel inadequate and for me, it was being shorter than everyone around me. I often felt overlooked, which in turn, made me question my own worth. It wasn't until I began to practice yoga and techniques for standing poses, in particular, that I started to understand that standing tall has nothing to do with height. I learned that what other people think of me was none of my business. You can find that truth, too. 


β€œTo be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
