On April 28th, I'm working with live, local, metal band Goner to teach a Metal Yoga class.
Some yogis have asked me, why?
My answer, Why the heck not?!
We are all unique. We all find joy in different things. We all have different quirks, talents, strengths and weaknesses.
In a world of Instagram yogis doing poses on the side of a cliff with a wave crashing in the background while new age music plays softly, why can't we have have the reverse? Why can't we have a goth metal dude kicking some @$$ in a warrior pose in the mud with graffiti on the wall behind him?
What makes you ZENN could very well be different from what another person finds ZENN.
I'm also a BIG believer in whatever gets someone to the mat!
If playing live metal music works for someone and they can rock out some asana with me; GREAT! If smooth jazz is your thing; Great! Chanting Kirtans; Great!
To each their own.
We have so many styles of yoga already and it continues to evolve. *Cough* Goat Yoga? *Cough* So let's keep pushing the boundaries. Create something new and different.
Metal Yoga may not be your thing either and that perfectly fine, but if you want to join us the information is below.
Fear. Anxiety. Competition. Judgement.
Am I even doing this right?!
Ever have those thoughts when trying something new? How about in that new yoga class?
Whomp Whomp.... :(
I've been there. The new guy. Everyone else fits this perfect mold and here I am to f#%* it all up.
BUT Wait! I thought we were all supposed to chant and share our heart center with all our class mates?
I thought we weren't in competition with one another?
But wait, watch me do this thing in headstand that YOU can't do...
AHHHHH what? I can't keep up.
Didn't we just want to do yoga?
What is your vision for 2018?
Looking to reconnect with yourself?
Want to dive deeper into knowing who you really are?
Join me on this adventure. Gift yourself a day.
"Wellness Within", is a mini retreat being held at the Zennergy Studios space on January 13th. There will be yoga, meditation, journaling, dancing and camaraderie. We'll eat too! ;)
Wellness Within. What does that mean?!
Possibly the "buzz-i-est" of the buzz words going around the web right now. However, it really is needed more than ever!
As we grow-up we learn to be nice to others and take care of our friends/pets/family/etc. While, yes I do believe these things are important; what about being nice and taking care of yourself?
First off, You can say "No" to take care of yourself first. Don't go to that party if you are feeling run down from the week. Don't accept that invite to the baby shower/wedding/etc. that you don't want to go to. Do what is best for you!
