Authentic Power

"Power is not really ours if it stems from an outside source. That’s privilege. That’s luck. That’s not what lasts.

Power must be claimed as our own.

On our own terms. In our own way. Reflecting our own authentic expression of it."

—Chiani Nichols

As a (thin, straight) white girl teaching yoga, I’m reflecting hard on this quote... Finding authenticity without appropriating, and leveraging my privilege to bring *good* in the world is something I meditate on often.
