One of the coolest parts of what I do is the opportunity I have to travel and meet inspiring & interesting peeps. One of them is my homie Dula from Los Angeles. He's a stylin' young cat who is not afraid to reflect inward, and from here he blossoms outward with beautiful & authentic energy.
On his Instagram feed he's always dropping wisdom, so this intention I used the other day in class is in many ways a #colab with Dula. I took his vibe, added my vibe and boom, collaboration.
The less attached we are to things the lighter we get. The lighter you get, the higher you can soar. The higher you soar, the more you see. The more you see, the more you know. The more you know, the more empowered become. The more empowered you become, the more liberated you become. The more liberated you become... Well, then anything becomes possible.
ON THE MAT
Let's do this work today, the work of getting less attached to how we want it to go. This work leads to endless possibility. We have 60 mins to flow, to get lighter to soar, to get higher, to get empowered.
From here we put dropped some serious tunes and put in work.
In yoga practice, everything becomes more fluid when we get lighter. We can soar forward from down dog to our hands. We can soar up from forward fold to reach and touch the sky. When we step back to runners lunge, we can lift and soar in a way that allows us to land our toes with softness. We can soar!
OFF THE MAT
I love when Dula makes the connection, "the higher we soar, the more we can see". It's like when you're on a plane and taking off. As you soar up, you can see the whole city below. You get a view of the bigger picture. What he's speaking to is awareness. When we see more, we know more. We get connected to the big picture and realize that we are never alone. We see that all is interconnected.
When you fully know that you are not alone, you feel the freedom to take risks and step into your life more awake. The more liberated you become... Well, then anything becomes possible.
