Ella is a dancer who I have known since I first moved to London many years ago.  When I watched Ella in this video, I watched it over and over; I was blown away by her honesty. I never knew that she had also had to navigate a complicated relationship with her body. Here she talks about how she has embraced and accepted her body’s limitations as it’s changed over the years. Her message is incredibly powerful; one that we could all learn from. “It’s OK to have a bad day. It’s not good and it’s not healthy to be so hard on yourself.” My personal message is; don’t punish your body for what it can’t do, love it for what it can do.
