My first yoga video – Energizing Yoga

Well Yoga Friends, I have resisted any online video offerings for some time, but here you go – an ENERGIZING YOGA PRACTICE that lasts about 48 minutes.  Even after teaching for 20 years, I felt nervous about how to share my energy and spirit on camera…and then of course, there were all those ego-driven fears about how would I look, what if I made a mistake, what if it wasn’t perfect…So much to get over when you SEE yourself reflected back to you. But what a learning opportunity, a lesson in acceptance and self-compassion, a reminder of simplicity, and a practice in authenticity. I played the video for myself this morning, letting ME guide ME. There was something so comforting and real about listening to my own voice, trusting in my own guidance, and letting myself be held by that very energy and spirit that seems to work through me – ahhh inner light and love! My initial intention to make a video for YOU has turned out to be a small act of sharing and service for US. I hope you can feel the energetic exchange when you practice with me (enlarge it to full screen for best playback), and I hope this inspires you to embrace your OWN home practice, however it unfolds. Just get on your mat!

Until the next one, I will leave you with some thoughts from Brené Brown’s book, The Gifts of Imperfection.

“Choosing authenticity means cultivating the courage to be imperfect, to set boundaries, and to allow ourselves to be vulnerable; exercising the compassion that comes from knowing that we are all made of strength and struggle; and nurturing the connection and sense of belonging that can only happen when we believe that we are enough.”

“Mindfully practicing authenticity during our most soul-searching struggles is how we invite grace, joy, and gratitude into our lives.”

Namasté…
