Seize the Day!

Seize the Day!






If you had
One shot
Or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted
In one moment
Would you capture it?
Or just let it slip?...

You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime…

While these words apply to reaching for your dreams, they also emphasize that all we have is this moment to fully live our life. In yoga, you learn to tune out disruptions and simply focus on what’s happening minute by minute and breath by breath. This concept of absorption in the present moment applies to yoga on and off the mat. Living in the now encourages you to experience the ease AND the discomfort of each day. Being able to shut out distractions, to not worry about the end result, and just lose yourself in the moment is truly seizing the day. 

Living your life with passion and presence isn’t pretending the future isn’t coming or burying your head in the sand like an ostrich. Instead, it’s acceptance and recognition of what is happening right now. Positive or negative. Easy or complicated. So, don’t hesitate to take risks, to make changes, to shift gears if you aren’t happy. What’s the worst that could happen? 

When you dedicate yourself to your yoga practice each day, really commit. Commit to the breath. Commit to the movement. Life can be looked at as a series of smaller moments adding up to one beautiful experience. Then, apply this philosophy off the mat into your daily life. Savor each moment and surrender to experience whether it’s full of light or shadow. Don’t be afraid to do it now!! Carpe diem because it’s all we’ve got.
