Life Changing Practice or just a good stretch?

Without discipline there is no freedom. If you practice yoga occasionally, say once a week, you will have a “nice stretch” and maybe even get a “good sweat.”

That doesn’t even scratch the surface of what a regular yoga practice can give you. For your life to be headed in the right direction, you need to get in touch with your authentic self. Your yoga practice takes you inward so that you can discover who that is. Do you  remember who that person is? Do you remember they

once had hopes, dreams and aspirations?

It just takes a few deep breaths to get right back to the person you intended to become. Let your yoga practice, a true practice, take you there every day so you stay on course and don’t end up living someone else’s dreams or idea of success.

Discipline is Freedom…freedom to become who you intended to be. Freedom to live your life in a way that makes your heart beat faster with joy, even on the tough days.

 

Just For Today

Set aside all judgment, all criticism, and all need to be in control of everyone and everything.

The one thing that you’re in full control of is your reaction to any given situation…that’s it.

Let go of your need for anyone or anything to be any different than it is. When you free up all that energy you might decide it’s worth doing again tomorrow, and the next day, and so on.

Speak Only Words of Kindness

Speak Only Words Of KindnessIf you didn’t mean it, why did you say it?

In yoga, we refer to your word as a “seed” or “bija.” 

Once you’ve planted that seed it will grow. What you said is out there forever and it can never be taken back.

When you’re about to blurt something out that you know you shouldn’t…Inhale, hold, exhale fully and hold. Your breathing practices aren’t solely for  yoga class. Your rate of breathing and state of mind are inseparable. Calm your breath to calm your mind and life.

What you say lives forever. Speak only words of kindness.

Give Us Your Presence, Not Your Presents

While you’re  rushing around buying gifts, your friends and family are hungry for  your presence.

Self-inquiry is a key part of any yoga practice. Stop and think about what is important to you.

If the people in your life are important to you then be fully present for them. Give them your time and give them your attention.

Allow them to be fully seen, heard, and  loved by you.

Choose to do things differently.

Winter Solstice

We move from darkness towards the light. We move from frustration, disappointment, anger or resentment to forgiveness of ourselves and others.

We begin again. Prepare now for 2015.

Consider:

1. Who do I need to forgive?

2. What do I need to forgive myself for?

3. What are the things that really matter to me?

4. What are the things that REALLY, really matter to me?

5. What do I want 2015 to be for me?

Forgive, and prioritize what is important to you. Find ways to celebrate life more.

If you need a little help in the forgiveness department, practice this meditation and commit to it for a full 40 Days. There is freedom in forgiveness.

Happy Holidays!

Resurrection~ Come Back to Life

ResurrectionResurrection is defined as, “The act of rising from the dead or returning to life.”

This might be what you long for after extended periods of stress. You want to rise from this exhausted/deadened state and come back to life. Resurrection seems like an appropriate topic for Easter. Whether you celebrate Easter or not, springtime is a time of resurrection, renewal, and rebirth…rather aptly symbolized by this holiday.

What part of you needs to be resurrected?

What aspects of yourself have you left behind?

Did you leave behind the artist, the dancer, the lover?

What used to bring you joy?

What are the things you can do to bring yourself back to life?

Dance more, sing more, love more, give more, live more
