Give It Up to get FREE

When I was first asked to be a guest writer for the Yoga One blog and share how I experience the monthly teaching focus of Give Up What You Must, I was like “Oh yeah, I’m so down!” I was so excited because I have experience in this theme, I like to write, and have often thought about starting my own blog. I was ready. I sat down to write. I opened my laptop. I started to jot down all of my ideas and thoughts.

Then, it happened.

“I’m not good enough.”

“This isn’t right.”

“Not perfect. Not perfect. Not perfect.”

“You’re not a good writer.”

“Nobody cares what you have to say.”

“So and so’s blog will be better than yours.”

Oh yes. The tried and true negative self-talk. The perfectionist problems. The comparison curse. Fear. They came out to sabotage what I truly wanted.

I got so frustrated. I tried to force myself to get something on paper. The more I forced, the more...

The Flip Side Of Focus: Give It Up To Get Free

Time for a pop quiz!
Who remembers what the studio theme was at Yoga One in January?
Don’t worry, you all get an A and the grades don’t matter anyway.

Drishti is the beginning of the journey into power. It’s when you set your sight on something. It’s when you focus from the wide angle of your life to just one direction.

This is a moment of choice because as soon as you choose to focus on one thing, you have to give up putting your attention on all of the other things. This is the flip side of focus. 

Inherent in putting your attention on one thing is giving up the energy we contribute to other things.

This works at all levels. Physically we can only be in one place at one time, and while some of us may be able to pat our heads and rub our bellies at the same time, mostly we can only do one real thing in any given moment.

On the mental and emotional level, it’s similar. Thoughts and emotions can move much faster than...

Sharing Your Yoga Passion with Your Person

Yoga is your passion.  You practice multiple times, you've built a community around it, and hey, you may even follow multiple yoga accounts on Instagram.  But how does that translate outside of your yoga bubble and into your personal life?  Do your people also feed on your passion of yoga? Today, we break down sharing your yoga passion with your person.

Create space for them to join. When it comes to sharing your yoga passion with your person, encouragement is key.  Giving them a glimpse into what a class looks like or the simple gesture of inviting them to a class may give that person the courage to go.

Offer incentives. If your person has never been to a class, offer up some incentives.  For example, Y1 offers a great 30 days for $31 as well as deals for newcomers! Check out all the goodies here.

Break down the basics. We get it, going to a new experience such as a yoga class can be intimidating.  Especially when that...
