"For many years I mistook discipline as ambition. Now I believe it to be more about consistency. Do get on the mat. Practice and life are not that different."
— Judith Hanson Lasater
I am back, dearest! Did you miss me?!
I was off galavanting around the Caribbean and it has given me a much needed opportunity to reconnect with myself, to take a step back from the anxious energy of the day to day and rediscover what it means to live a yogic life.
And believe me, I am far from the most "yogic" person, on or off the internet. I'm just a human, trying to learn how to do this life thing with a little less conflict, a little less pain, and a lot of love.
But the point here is not to strive to BE the "perfect yogi." After all, perfection doesn't exist. We all know that a this point yes?
You don't have to be anything! But you do need to be moving forward, as time moves forward, right? It is impossible to remain exactly where you are now for the rest of forever. So you have to move forward. But there are many ways to move forward; not all of them beneficial.
That's why we have yoga. That's why we have movement. That's why we have breathwork and meditation. These are the tools that we use to move forward intentionally.
And in this last love letter of 2023, this is what I hope for you. Intentionality in your life. A toolbox of the highest caliber at your fingertips. The space for you to reconnect with what it means to be you.
Thank you for being here, for taking the time to read this every week, and for practicing with me.
And now for our final class!
May you find strength. May you find fluidity. And may you find balance. In this thing called life.
Love to you.
