Wow, today was fun! My first Modo Flow back since our month away. Dropped some killer beats today (playlist and end of post), and the crew of peeps sweating was hype and ready to work.
Yesterday I was part of crew doing webinars for some of the new Modo/Moksha owners who are opening studios in the coming year. Columbus, Ohio is opening, and Modo Sydney Australia is in the works, as well is Modo Paris. I was listening to Darci from Moksha Yoga Westshore (west coast of Canada) and she reminded everyone of this powerful quote that inspired our intention for practice today.
"Penetration of our mind is our goal,
but in the beginning to set things in motion,
there is no substitute for sweat."
- B. K. S. Iyengar -
On The Mat
In class, we looked at this more from the perspective of, "hey, i'm back, let's go to work, let's sweat." Sweat was dripping everywhere today, man I am so inspired by everyones effort today! The full expression of this quote is really what all Modo & Moksha studios are all about: Calm Mind, Fit Body and Inspired Life.
Off The Mat
This quote carries into our life off the mat. It's are reminder that no matter what our goals are, hard work must be part of achieving them.
On the topic of BKS, a great book of his is called "Light on Life." Good read if you're in for a new read.
