The journey to open a yoga studio on my own has been a difficult one and I go back and forth on whether I’m confident enough to share the exhaustion, the sadness, the loneliness, and the heavy weight of feeling that I’m not good enough to do this by myself. As a business owner, it’s important to pay attention to the local atmosphere around your chosen field, but that close eye on what everyone else is doing in your community also brings with it constant comparisons and uncertainties. Studios are opening all the time...and closing all the time as well. I ask myself what I’m doing differently that will keep my doors open and build a strong and consistent community to support the business. What’s my answer? Well, I suppose, I can only just keep doing *me* and offering what I believe to be a sustainable and transformative practice. I don’t always believe myself day-to-day, but I can show up for my students whole-heartedly, unwaveringly, resolutely, and unconditionally, and by the end of teaching any class with any amount of students in it, I truly trust this practice. I see it in students’ faces and can feel the gratitude for the yoga, not for me, and it reminds me of the variety of greatness it offers. For everyone. And even if I’m not meant to run a yoga studio forever, I know that I can at least provide for the bodies that do make their way through these doors and offer them a piece of their life back. . . . My teacher @jason_crandell reminded me during our 300-Hour training to “trust the practice.” I will hear his voice stressing this fact forever and aptly apply it to all aspects of my life. I have to trust what I have to offer, trust that those drawn to this practice will find their way, and when I’ve served my purpose in this community, trust that the next step will unfold. I’ve never lacked the ability to forge ahead, though sometimes blindly, but I know that if the path isn’t clear, I’ll clear a path. ☄️ . . . I can offer this: do you and do it well. Those who appreciate you will show up. Those who don’t aren’t necessary for your trajectory. ✊🏼 And remind yourself as frequently as needed to trust the practice, on the mat and into your life. 🧘🏻‍♀️

Make it a point this year, month, week, or lifetime to engage in and cultivate only meaningful relationships. And if any don’t feel meaningful, ask yourself why. Then ask if it’s worth your energy, any more of your thoughts, and any of your heart to continue it. And in the end, if you decide it is, give your whole beautiful self to loving and supporting it. . . . Practice this on yourself. Give your whole being to your self. Love it, cultivate it, support it, push it, hold it, make space for it, drink a glass of wine with it when it needs it, listen to it, dance wildly with it, laugh with it late into the evening when no one else is awake, sing loudly with it when everyone else can hear, be silent with it so you can hear everything it can’t say, tell it the truth when no one else will even when it hurts, tell it it’s okay to be hurt sometimes because this world isn’t perfect or fair, be cautious and at the same time reckless with it so that you can grow, and mostly, just see it for exactly who it is: untamable star dust. ⭐️✨

This is a clip from a video that I made for a friend. I just love geeking out on shoulder stuff and I was editing this video and speeding it up and thought this looked funny in fast motion. It’s all about externally rotating the humoral head in the shoulder socket. With jazz hands too apparently. 🖐🏻🎶
