F*ck Being Perfect

F*ck Being Perfect

We have been conditioned to believe our worth is based on a number on the scale. Fed daily by an economy that prospers off of us feeling like shit about ourselves, our insecurity is all encompassing.

In that constant, fear-gripped state of reactivity, we lash out and seek to control the thing society tells us contains our total worth: Our bodies.

Use the following sequences to help you cultivate a more loving relationship to your body, on and off the mat. Alexa will meet you where you are -- physically, mentally, and emotionally. Every. Damn. Day.

  • Effort and Ease

    There is a balance between effort and ease, both on and off the mat.
