See you inside my yogi-in-training friend. 😉👍
Because there’s no such thing as a silly question… and because we all start at suck!
If you’re planning your first yoga adventure in 2018 you probably have some questions. Trouble is, no one ever likes to be the first to raise their hand.
So, to get the ball rolling I’m sharing 20 questions fellow yoga teachers posted on Facebook as the questions they get asked the most…just so you no there’s such thing as a silly question…or is there? 😉
I carved out my own responses to these…but if you’re still left wondering ‘bout something yoga related, pop it down in the comments and I’ll share what I got.
Here we go. Twenty questions start now…
Your mini-yogi training starts now.
We’re getting ahead of the game…it starts today. Your 2018 well-being planning happens now.
This week, I’m going to get you thinking about your goals, what questions you need to ask yourself (honestly), and give you a few yogi ideas to INSPIRE so you are all set up to hit the ground running on the first day of 2018.
Just so you know. This is not a ‘quick-fix’, ‘boom bust’, ‘giving it lip service’ wellbeing solution I share with you here. It’s your ‘soul-driven’, ‘completely sustainable’, ‘love your frickin-self today and every day’, ‘this is me’, ‘I’m awesome’ solution.
You like the sound?
Get your yogi mindset here.
Yep, we are officially in the rapids that are hurtling us towards Christmas and New Year, question is will you sink or will you swim? Ho Ho Ho… yeah, I know, not the most positive of seasons’ greetings (especially coming from a yogi). But let’s not kid ourselves…this time of year can be a STRESSSS FESSST.
Whether you’ll ride the yule tide rapids and reach calmer water has little to do with if you’ve got the buoyancy aid or a lifesavers’ certificate and everything to do with the answer to this question.
Have you got the mindset?
Let’s go see.
Ward off winter woes and be super resilient into spring
Seems appropriate to throw some fireworks into this week’s blog with a question.
Here it is…
Have you lost your sparkle?
If you have, through illness, fatigue, stress, or any other cause, you’ll recognise the symptoms.
- Maybe you’re not exactly having the time of your life.
- You probably have little energy, feel tired all the time.
- You’ve stopped doing all the crazy stuff you used to love doing or when you do, it’s not so effortless as it was.
- You feel like you’re not winning at life.
- You’re not showing up or performing at your best.
- You’ve got used to simply going through the motions.
This is not a good picture, agreed?
Need to keep on your toes in life? This is all you need for balance.
Loads of my yogi friends run to feel great. When people who love to run don’t run, whole worlds can fall apart. You could say it’s some of these guy’s worst nightmares.
Happy Halloween my yogi friend, because whether you run or not, not being able to do what you love doing, is scary stuff.
But we can all be taken out by life at any moment, the ground can literally get pulled from underneath our feet.
Which is why this week I’m asking this question…
Hey Yogi-in-Training. Hope your week was sweet. 😉
Today’s yoga quickie is inspired by the music streaming services of Spotify.
I just fired up my account and got to scrolling through some beautifully curated sets of tunes designed by its experts to shift me into any desired state of mind or mood. Let me see, do I need help getting my sorry ass out of bed, or be inspired to go kick some creative butt? As I have already won the war to wake, I’ll go for the latter option. Thankyou Spotify.
But It got me asking, who really needs a microscope or a science degree to see that sound can be a very cool way of communicating with the central nervous system?
Which is what I want you to remember as we dive into this week’s yoga quickie which is all about using sound or vibration to access heightened states of awareness, clarity and consciousness.
“Established in yoga, perform action.”
On days when nothing goes your way, when you feel powerless, when you think life’s throwing you under the proverbial bus – you could be forgiven for thinking you’d had no say in any of it. But guess what, you did.
Urghh, don’t hate me. I get that you might not bet taking this as good news, but it is. It’s a VERY good thing.
Think about it. As unsavoury as it is to think to yourself ‘well, that’s another fine mess I got me into’, it at least acknowledges that you always had a say on some level – and we all want freedom to choose, yes?
YES JOSIE! 😉
There’s more this way…
FIVE ‘easy-to-implement’ actions you can do right away.
What happens when you really want or expect something and (for whatever reason) it doesn’t happen? Maybe you had a situation like that recently? Let’s see if you can relate and if you can, prepare to take care of your SELF as if you’re life depends on it.. let’s go.
5 yogi-inspired ways to build mind muscle and fulfil your dreams.
Do you ever fall short of your goals? How often have you thrown in the towel and declared; ‘now’s not the right time’, I can’t do it?’ Does it cross your mind that in some areas of your life, success might not even be possible for you – EVER.
Ok yogi’s-in-training, we got some strength work to do – for your mind.
Step right this way…
