yoga tuesdays.


This week is all about YOU!  Yoga is a self study and svadhyaya is a sanskrit word that embraces just that.  Svadhyaya literally means “one’s own lesson”.  This is done through meditation and asana practice.  Every time you meet your mat, you are giving yourself a lesson in body awareness, noticing the never-ending changes that are happening as your body transforms.  Self fulfilling prophesy is believing you can or can’t do something and then living it out.  Svadhyaya is about becoming aware of what you can do/be and living that.  Human bodies are amazing and can do amazing things- but it takes work, belief, and perseverance.  Embrace your self study to help knock down the mental barriers you put up in your mind, blocking you from growth.  I have been hearing so many sighs of struggle in class lately, but know that those sighs are helping you get to the future.  Work through that and this week believe that you will get there eventually.
