My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 12 (Coming Alive)


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 12

(Coming Alive)

[ Doing Me ]

Tuesdays are my heavy-hitter days. I coach a group session for Entrepreneurs via TeleConference for 75 minutes, then have a 45 minute break until my hour-long kickboxing class commences. It’s such a great flow; a flow that allows me to be filled up and nourished by Primary Foods, which are the foods we don’t eat:

Primary Foods, a term I’ve learned as a student at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, are your

Relationship, Career, Spirituality and Physical Activity.  

When these are in balance, you are in FLOW, which is the secret to happiness.

When I coach, I get to connect and build relationships that are so rewarding, while on the other hand, I get to build a rewarding career for myself, too. I satisfy my Primary Food areas of Relationship and Career. When I kickbox, I get to have fun with Physical Activity.

Though I have a daily meditation and chanting practice, my Tuesdays have become more WHOLE in this 30 Day Yoga Challenge because of the addition of Yoga.

I get to Do Me so fully and it feels wonderful…

[ The Experience ]

I took a Yoga Basics Class tonight, and this time the primary teacher was back.  Last week I was there, she had a sub.  I’m glad I got to take a class with her.  I enjoyed that the first thing she reminded us was that this was for us, and all we needed to do to have all we wanted was ask.

Of course, I didn’t ask anything, though my head screamed, “ask about downward dog”.  Alas, I sat, and sure enough, when we got into the first downward dog, she came over and helped me position my hands properly.

I don’t know why I do that. Maybe I know my mind is so powerful that even in silence, the Universe listens.  I could speak up more. Then again, no judgement, since I speak up just fine when “needed”, I suppose.

[ The Takeaway ]

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
― Howard Thurman

At the beginning and ending of our class, our teacher said this quote.  She reminded us that to come alive can happen simply through our breath.

I’d add that it can happen simply by being filled up by the Primary Foods that feel yummy and fuel you…

[ Question For You ]

How do you come alive?
How often do you do it?

My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 5 (Tuesday)!


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 5 (Tuesday)!

yogachallenge

[ 3-6-5 ]

Today I celebrated the first of many milestones I will experience in the next 365 days:

  • I celebrate being 3 weeks into my 6-Week Transformation Circle for Entrepreneurs. The majority of the 11 participants are Health Coaches and I am so honored to be able to be the Vessel for Their Potential.
  • I celebrate completing 6 weeks of kickboxing, which I entered to win on a whim… and won! 🙂 I am strong and centered and finished this week stronger than I started, and excited to be continuing the practice with my amazing coach, Lydia.
  • I celebrate showing up for 5 days of yoga.  I was gifted 30 days of unlimited yoga 5 days ago, so I took the gift and decided to challenge myself to utilize it to the fullest. Today, I enjoyed a Yoga Basics class…   

[ The Experience ]

So far, I’ve participated in a Yin class, two Hatha Classes (Day 3, Day 4) and a Kundalini Yoga class in my 4 days of this Yoga challenge.  I should note that in 2004 I was part of a Yoga Thai Chi Dance Troupe, so I’m not entirely new to the practice of Yoga in its multi-faceted form.  However, the person who I am now is definitely new, and I am thankful to be back into practice, as I approach it from a new angle.

After a day of coaching clients individually and in group setting, then a crazy kickboxing day, allowing myself to settle into a Yoga Basics class was so fitting and SO welcomed.  It allowed me to release, to be present, and most importantly, my 830PM class allowed me to breathe.

[ The Takeaway ]

I love to challenge myself so that life becomes less challenging.

As I finish Day 5 of my 30 Day Yoga Challenge, I am finding that I feel my body more (I have hips! lol) and that I am even more intentional with my breath than I already am (it’s Day 82 of my challenge to meditate/chant for 40 days, btw).

With every challenge, from holding the space for entrepreneurs to unstick their mindset, to getting back in shape with kickboxing, to learning how to love Yoga, I am realizing that the key to allowing a challenge to become fun, less challenging, and filled with results, is hidden in the breath.

For with every breath, we calm our bodies, our minds and open our hearts to what is… that which speaks (if we’ll listen):

YOU HAVE ALL YOU NEED
YOU ARE PERFECT
YOU ARE ENOUGH
&
YOU HAVE UNLIMITED POTENTIAL.

Breathing allows us another chance to purposefully participate for another 365.

So take a moment to check-in… Are you breathing?

Here’s to your health, happiness and WHOLENESS!
