In our Tola Yoga finale of 2017, we could have been laser-focused on sending out boatloads of Love & Light. But I wanted to praise the mighty powers of two other L words that can really change your life. Launch & Let Go.
As we began our challenging yoga workout, I told my amazing students to focus their energies on launching, i.e., beginning, three new things in the first three months of 2018. It doesn’t matter what they are, as long as they serve you well. Like a daily fitness program or a volunteer opportunity. Plus, everybody knows that good things come in three’s, right?
And more importantly, let go, i.e., take out the machete and whack it off, that one thing that REALLY doesn’t serve you well. Like a shitty boyfriend or a dead-end job.
So kudos to all the courageous souls who L&L in the New Year and change their lives for the better. You deserve it.
Have a safe and Happy New Year everyone! Peace – R
PS – stay tuned for new weekend classes in DTLA
Many years ago, my sister gave me this polished piece of black stone inscribed with this:
Wherever You Go, Go With All Your Heart
I’ve keep it by my bed ever since, to remind me of what should be. For everyone on the planet.
Because it’s all about shining your light – coming from your heart, that is – out into the Universe in the most positive, truthful and heartfelt way.
Hey, what do you expect coming from a Yoga dude who’s been practicing and teaching this mind-body-spirit, self-love and self-respect, “it’s a lifestyle” practice for over twelve years.
Think about it. Wouldn’t life be grand If you shared the very best of you…all the time. You know the one: upbeat, positive, smiling, confident, respectful and considerate. To name a few.
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
Peace – R
