“Yoga means addition - addition of energy, strength and beauty to body, mind and soul.” ― Amit Ray
What do you think of when you think of energy?
Is it how you feel when you wake up in the morning?
Is it the amount of spunk you've got as you go about your day?
Maybe it's the way you feel around certain people.
Maybe you only think of it when it's gotten away from you and you can barely keep your eyes open or think straight.
Energy is, yes, the amount of vibrancy we feel throughout our day.
It is what flags as we get overworked or overwhelmed, or when bedtime is nearing.
But it is also the food we put in our bodies. That, too, is energy. Because our body uses that food as fuel to support all of the necessary functions of living.
Energy is also the exchange made between people.
The words, the intentions, the love, or the aggression.
You can project your energy onto others, and you can have your energy stolen by others.
You can have other's energy projected on you and invade your peace.
But you can also project love, which is energy, onto others, and give them peace.
Holding space is an energy exchange.
Laughter. Embraces. Arguments. Words not said.
Energy is everywhere and it is everything.
I bring this up for two reasons.
So now I ask you to observe. In what ways do you use your energy? Are you efficient, kind, pushy, overbearing.
Do you give more than you receive, or do you take more than you give?
Do you hold space? Or do you feel more often that you've got your hackles raised?
What about the energy you take in from those around you?
Does it feel good? Supportive? Or invasive? Tense?
Simply observe where you are these days.
Without judgement. Without expectation. Leave those words at the door.
Because we all have work to do.
The power is in knowing that, and taking the steps, no matter how small, to do that work.
And then when you're done observing and working you need to shake it off, this class has got your back.
It's a full body burner, focusing on twists and detoxifying poses to support digestion and assimilation of energy.
It's also a high energy class, so any stagnation in the body will be on its way out the door.
Hope you enjoy!
