“It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.” Alan Cohen
Now, we’re not suggesting that by mixing up your yoga and exercise routine you’ll transform your life, but it’s a start! We show up on our yoga mats the way we show up in our daily life. It’s easy to fall into a rut and repeat the same workouts, practice with the same teachers, or walk the same route.
And it’s easy to stay in a dead-end job, a crappy apartment, or a stagnant relationship because it’s easier than taking that first step toward something new. New and unfamiliar can equal scary, right? If you tend to wait for change to happen to you instead of instigating a shift yourself, maybe you simply need a nudge in a different direction.
No need to quit or give notice or break up with your partner, even if you know it’s time to move on. Baby steps can work better than ripping off the Band-aid. Perhaps you could register for a new career site and peruse the listings. You could drive around the neighborhood where you dream of living and check for rental signs.
Relationships are a more complex. Only you know if it’s over or if a heart-to-heart or a therapy session could breathe new life into it. The thing is you must DO something, or you may exist in complacency or stagnate forever.
If you’re not ready to make the shift in your daily life yet and require some support, start with your yoga practice. Engage your body, mind, and heart in different ways on the mat and see what happens off the mat. This week’s fresh classes are outside of the box.
These unique fitness workouts are powerful, beneficial, and complementary to your regular yoga practice. Check out a planet inspired HIIT class, a barre fusion flow, a quick core workout, and an animal movement class. Engage yourself in a fresh way!
