<< Yuval’s mantra put me in a state where I felt constriction and expansion both in equal measure. It was an opportunity to let myself go and connect with the different emotions this specific situation pushed to arise from deep inside.
I lived the confinement as a punishment at first, but slowly it shaped into a learning journey where I faced myself and allowed me to find options in a constrictive environment.>>
