The “intention – visualization” theme is surrender and heal the past.
There is so much beauty and grace in surrender.
Only through surrender do we move forward and grow.
I would really like to share this video of Queen Oprah <3 talking about her own experience with surrender.
“Always say ‘yes’ to the present moment…
Surrender to what is.
Say ‘yes’ to life – and see how life starts suddenly to start working for you rather than against you.”
I have personally gone through this experience a few times in my life. I have never spoken about this before but During my Saturn Return, I had to really let go of all the old attachments I had about spirituality and self-identification. It felt like shedding old skin. It was a painful yet liberating experience and an experience that allowed me to find a deeper level of wisdom. Then, later on, before starting my online career I had to completely let go of teaching yoga. It was a very painful period because, we humans, tend to hold on and attach to everything dear and when it is time to let it go we hold on :). Up to this point, I have probably taught a few thousand classes in studios and gyms and it was time for me to say “That’s it! I may never teach again and I am 100% OK with that”. Only then and there new doors began to open for me. We can only become more by letting the past go. The past has lessons for us. The past is what made us who we are. However, overidentification with the past keeps us anchored in the past and we are unable to become who we have come here to be. We are unable to be present if we are only focused on the past. We must embrace every experience we have been through as an expression of the universal order and perfection around us however painful life can be for all of us. Moving forward is not a single act of surrender but a continuous process of growing and becoming wiser.
Also, I must add that yoga and my classes are not meant to be therapy. They are just meant to deepen our self-awareness and add a layer of wisdom to the way we perceive the phenomenal world.
Now onto the class. 🙂
Bubble Butt Bands Sequence
What a combination – “Butt – Surrender” such as life.
A block / a small soft fitness ball
An ottoman or a swiss ball.
We are staring with a warm-up.
Expect a lot of band exercises targetting the glutes and hips. Working on a lifted and round booty as a way of strengthening the first – second chakra area. Butt exercises also can help stabilize the pelvis, back and core.
Some yoga stretches are included.
