I always thought yoga was too slow for me. Pilates was more my thing – it seemed more powerful, more energetic. But then, I got really unwell, and lifting my phone was challenging. After a few years of really struggling, I was finally diagnosed with fibromyalgia and started a treatment plan. As time went on, going to physiotherapy, developing strength again, I decided to give yoga a try. I fell in love; head over heels (kind of like a yoga position) in love.
Garance Dore is a freelance illustrator and fashion writer. I discovered her recently through her book “Love Style Life” which I devoured from cover to cover.

Your eyes quickly dart back and forth, checking whether there is a hint of intimacy between them.
