I don’t know about you, but before embarking on a yoga practice, I limited myself in what I thought I was capable of doing. I think we all do this to a certain degree. You think to yourself, “I will never go hang gliding, or white water rafting, or reach for my dream job, or __________________ “, (fill in the blank to your biggest fear).
But, you are brave enough to start the practice of yoga. Believe me, that is no simple act; people tell me all the time, “I can’t start yoga because I’m so tight”. This is WHY you start yoga. To become flexible. And slowly the yoga postures began to work. You notice better sleeping, more energy, less sick time and that pain you had is slowly disappearing. Unbeknownst to you, the yoga is working on getting your mind flexible as well. Let’s go up to that thought in the first paragraph. Your Yoga practice is slowly tearing down the walls of your limitations. Before yoga, you might think it’s just impossible to launch your dream business; after practicing, you might decide to give it a try.
This practice of yoga opens you up to your fullest potential. The limits that are in your mind, are also in your body, someplace. It’s in humanity’s best interest if you are living in your full potential. You might just be smart and find a cure for cancer. You might create a better way to obtain drinking water. Or, you might just be the very best in your life; be a better worker, lover, husband, wife, sister, brother; you get the idea. Believe me, the world needs better moms, dads, workers!
So, what is holding you back from starting? Aerial yoga teacher training starts end of Sept. Yoga + Hikes are coming up, as well as Buti Glow Halloween. And 200 hr. yoga teacher training starts in January. It’s important to note: When I started yoga I was not flexible (in my body or my mind)….. When I started yoga teacher training, I didn’t really see myself teaching…. When I started playing around with the hammock, I was so scared, but somehow persisted. I started to notice BIG gains in flexibility with the hammock. The more yoga I do, the more I realize how “little” I was living.
Often I tell the new student, “The hardest thing about yoga is getting here; after that it’s easy!”. So, what commitment do you want to make? We have the tools to help you, after all, Yoga opens you up!
See you on the mat, (or in the hammock!)
