This is definitely not your “usual” Yoga challenge because in this series I’m gonna share the story of Virabhadra the Warrior, the one behind the classic Warrior poses.
And this story is totally going to shift your perspective on Yoga, life, but most importantly YOURSELF so that you see yourself as...
To say that the last few months have been intense is a massive understatement.
We have been navigating the waves of hundreds of thousands of innocent people being infected with a virus that has changed our day to day lives drastically.
Now we are seeing massive waves of change initiated by another disease: racism and hatred.
This is one that infected the minds of many for hundreds of years, and has weaseled its way into the system that governs us. And like the corona virus it is now causing a massive upheaval, one that is LONG overdue.
I find it interesting to observe that both waves have one very vital thing in common: THE BREATH.
A respiratory virus stops us in our tracks, and then an innocent man pleading to breathe calls the world into action.
An extremely tragic irony since the breath itself is one of the many things that connect us all as humans.
So as you read these words do yourself a massive favor and take a deep breath, be present with...
COURAGE, RESILIENCE, FOCUS, AWARENESS
These are just some of the qualities of the Warrior.
The warrior that lives within each of us.
The warrior that is being called forth right now in this crazy, unprecedented time.
This is the warrior that we embody whenever we step onto the mat and into the Warrior poses.
Behind these powerful poses is an ancient story that teaches us many lessons about the Yoga practice, the journey of life, and ultimately about ourselves.
Like many other myths and parables, this ancient story is a wild one filled with anger, pain, lessons, and challenges that ultimately ends when the Warrior conquers it's opponent: his own mind.
In the process of that journey and the practice of the poses, the Warrior hones and refines essential qualities for life. Qualities that all of us already possess, we simply need to tap into them, activate them, and embody them on the mat and off!
Are you ready to awaken this inner warrior and become the fullest version of yourself?
WOW::: I have never needed Yoga more than I have these last few days. I am on a roller coaster of emotions, but one thing I know for sure is that Yoga is helping me big time.

With the onset of the global pandemic of COVID-19, to say our lives have changed drastically is an understatement. Most of the world is being asked to stay at home, maintain distance from others when out in public, and maintain high standards of hygiene to slow the spread of the virus.
Likely millions of others, you may now be working from home which is a big shift to your daily routine and schedule. And for now this is a key part that you can play to help flatten the curve and reduce the number of people worldwide that are impacted.
During this unprecedented time, it is vital that you do everything you can to stay healthy by keeping your immune system up and your stress levels down! While you know I am always a huge advocate for self care, I am suggesting that you kick those efforts into overdrive immediately and over these coming weeks.
Here's some ideas to help you with that:
The events of the last few weeks have meant major changes for all of us, to say the least! To minimize our contact with others and hopefully slow down and lessen the effects of the corona virus we are now being asked to distance ourselves socially.
And for many of us, this has meant the shift to working remotely from home. As someone who has been doing this for awhile already I would love to offer you some tips to make the best of this experience to keep your mind sane and your body healthy including taking Yoga Breaks throughout the day!
Tip #1: Set up a dedicated work space
No, you can't work from the couch or the bed, you need to be able to sit or stand up properly (ie: stay awake)! This means setting up a dedicated work space at a desk or table so that you can stay upright, alert, and actually get things done.
Find a spot with good lighting, a proper chair and a surface area so you can lay out all the tools you need: computer, notepad, water, phone etc etc.
Working on a computer eight hours a day straight might be hurting your body and your work.
I know as a business owner or a team member you have a lot to do and accomplish every day. And with only 24 hours in a day it means that you have to be on top of your game!
But here’s the thing: hustling hard and being on your computer all day might be causing you pain now and problems down the road.
It’s vital that you take breaks throughout the day to stand up and move yourself out of the keyboard slouch to activate sleepy muscles, ease tension, breathe properly, and give your brain a break.
Are you going to continue to put your health on the back burner or are you ready to be forward thinking and make it a priority today? Then you MUST take breaks throughout your day!
Sitting for long hours can cause:
PLUS: Sitting for...
