"If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude."
These wise words have always summarized so nicely, the way I feel we should engage with the world.
Yet, this is so much easier said than done. Without guidance, without strategies , it may feel entirely overwhelming to think we can do anything on our own, to make a difference.
These days it it more important than ever, to have an array of tools in your tool belt for mitigating stress and creating positive ways to interface with your sphere of influence.
That is what brought me to the yoga mat so many moons ago, and why I continue to seek out all kinds of pathways to wholehearted living, wellness and physical fitness: because being an agent of positive change feels OMazing; it wakes + shakes and stirs our souls.
I've been studying movement, yoga + physical fitness since the late 90's and teaching now for over a decade. During that time, I've seen other people wake up too. I've seen people transform grief, and rally others to a cause. I've seen yoga mend wounds and training inspire activism. I've witnessed meditation draw people together, and bodywork cultivate a felt sense of belonging.
I teach wellness because it invites us look at ourselves and the world around us in a more honest and meaningful way. I teach because no matter what we perceive is going on externally, an embodied practice gives us a productive way to explore what's going on internally. Being physical helps us uncover what we're running from and maps a path by which we can breath through it.
I use the tools offered here as a means of being fully present with both joy and sorrow, to live awake and to be an agent of change.
Don't you want to be an agent too?
