Friday Dare: Take Steps Towards Your Resolutions!

http://thesweetescape.ca/2013/08/motivational-monday-when-its-ok-to-quit.html

Happy Friday!! I’m so excited to be going to a Business for Yoga Teachers Retreat in Santa Monica this weekend!  This retreat is going to be a HUGE way for me to launch myself forward towards my resolutions, so I thought it would be a perfect weekend for us all to work on our resolutions together!  If you read yesterday’s post, maybe you already started thinking about what you’ve let slip through the cracks or maybe not committed to as much as you wanted to, but let’s use this weekend to re-focus and take action!

The Softer Side of Tapas

Let Go

We’ve been diving deeper and deeper into tapas in my classes this month, and as we discuss the importance of discipline in our lives I’ve fallen a little bit in live with tapas.  Not only is it the way we all accomplish our biggest and most vivid dreams, but it’s a way for us to be gentle with ourselves as well.

I always looked at tapas as a way to challenge myself and force myself into doing things that I really didn’t want to do, but I’ve realized that the times in my life when I really needed quiet alone time or needed to hold back from doing my regular yoga or exercise, were the times that required the most discipline.  And when we actually use our intense determination to say no to something, we open ourselves up to a world of positive results; a quieter mind, more energy, avoided i...
