Intimacy has to start with you, it’s about looking inside and first understanding ourselves

It is sharing absolutely everything with those you are close to without judgement or reproach

It is having people that support you fully and are there to catch you when you fall no matter what

It is being with friends or a partner whom understand you and mirror your thoughts and moods

It is giving and receiving

Its being vulnerable as well as able to share our truth and reveal our fears – even when it’s really difficult to do so

It is being willing to communicate no matter what

Yoga deepens our awareness so helps us to see more clearly. It is from this place of seeing and living in truth that intimacy can occur, but truth is not comfort, in fact it can be very uncomfortable .

Intimacy in any relationship can only occur when we dig deep and open our hearts to each other.
