Making Space For Change

Yesterday I actually WENT to a yoga as a student.

It was amazing!

Usually, I'm doing a lot of self-practice at home, but experiencing class as a student again was soooo creatively and spiritually freeing for me.

At the beginning of the class, I sat in stillness for a minute or two to check in with my body and mind.

While I sat there, I imagined myself looking out on a beautiful, calm pond.

The surface was so still it looked like a sheet of glass, and giant lily pads covered the surface.

Beneath the surface were all these creative ideas and insights and lessons the universe was trying to send my way.

But the problem was, I couldn't see or hear what they were because of all the lily pads in the way.

So during class, while I practiced and moved, I imagined myself creating some space and one by one I removed the lily pads, allowing for new "things" to come to the surface.

Then at the end of class, in final savasana, I reimagined myself looking out on that pond again, only this time all the lily pads had been removed and it was a clear surface ready to welcome the new.

Often times I find myself anxious for change, ready for new things to come my way, and I forget that it takes effort on my part to first make space.

It's normal to feel discouraged and stuck sometimes, but the good news is:

When it comes to your life, you have the power to change anything you want.

Let me repeat that...

When it comes to your life, you have the power to change anything you want.

But it will require a change in thinking and behavior. If you want to make big changes, you need to give yourself some space and time to tune in first and identify what's not working (the lily pads), then have the courage and faith to clear them out of the way, and yoga helps.

Start clearing out your lily pads with this week's free class (down below) and let me know how it goes! 20 minutes long and perfect for all levels.

After you've practiced with me, I'd love to hear how your savasana went in the comment section down below. Anything new and interesting come to the surface for you? What changes are you looking to make in your life? 

As always, thank you for inviting me into your life - I'm so grateful we are connected!

With Gratitude,
