Is Yoga A Religion?

In my last post, I shared my AHA moment in yoga and how a simple 15-minute VHS was the catalyst for some pretty big changes in my life.

Okay, huge changes — I went from working as a licenced pharmacist to running a natural pharmacy, and then opening Semperviva Yoga and leading international yoga trainings and retreats.

I never saw these changes in my future. I simply knew something had to change that day I snuck home from work early to watch that video.

Before that day, I kept thinking all I had to do was work harder, and everything would be okay. And I became more and more frustrated when I didn’t get the results I expected from all that hard work.

I ended up feeling more depleted with each passing day. Even the workouts I did, hoping to burn off stress, wore me down.

And so this looped me into a vicious cycle of exercise, sugar, and caffeine highs, followed by the inevitable crash and burn. Sound familiar?

In this short video, I share how I broke that cycle and what I discovered in my studies of yoga that made me uncomfortable:

In the video I share:

● How even my most demanding practices healed my nervous system and left me feeling refreshed
● The conflicting messages that caused me to question yoga
● What being the “black sheep” of yoga means to me and how my approach is different

Let’s Start Over

It’s easy to keep our heads down in the busyness of everyday life. We take things as they come, hour by hour, and day by day.

The problem with that mode is that we don’t take time to step back and look at the bigger picture of the lives we’re creating.

And I’m no different…over the past few months, I’ve been caught up in the excitement of teaching my individual Self-Mastery Series courses. Today, I want to take a step back and give you a view of the bigger picture of why I created this series.

You might not even realize these immersions are part of the Self-Mastery Series. Maybe you know them as…

● Crystallize Your Vision
● Breakthrough Your Blocks
● Heal Your Heart
● Master Your Mind

These four immersions provide incredible benefits and transformations when taken alone. But together, they create momentum that transforms you and your life even faster — each course builds on the last, and touches on every chakra and every area of your life — from your personal goals, to your intimate relationships, to breaking free of your limits, to using your mind like the powerful piece of technology it is.

The seed for this series was planted over 20 years ago — when I discovered how to go from feeling threadbare and anxious, to feeling energized and inspired within minutes. That’s what yoga did for me — it gave me my life back.

In this short video, I share my story of going from burnout to recovery, and it all started with one “weird” yoga class on a VHS tape:

In the video I share:

● Why burnout happens, even when you are “successful”
● The two emotions I felt after my first class and how it spurred me to change my entire life
● Why seeing, or hearing is NOT believing when it comes to Kundalini Yoga
● And how the world of yoga is letting students down…plus, my take on it

When you click through to the video, I’ll also tell you how you can get free access to a 30-minute practice.

Sat Nam,
