The yoga pose is not the goal. Becoming flexible is not the goal. Standing on your hands is not the goal. The goal is to create space where you were once were stuck. To unveil the layers of protection you've built around your heart. To appreciate your body and become aware of the mind and the noise it creates. To make peace with who you are. The goal is to love yourself. Come to your yoga mat to feel; not to accomplish. Shift your focus and your heart will grow.

ON THE MAT
This is what I love about MODO Flow, we get a real opportunity to move forward. To get unstuck. When we are in down dog and walk, step or hop forward to our hands, we are moving forward. We are getting a chance to remember we never need to stay stuck. So today, really pay attention to that action. Take action.
As we move through the class, let's peel away some layers and create some space for growth.
OFF THE MAT
The last line in this quote really stands out as we leave the mat. Shift our focus and our heart will grow. This opportunity is always ours.
Driving home, someone cuts you off. Easy to get rattled. Take a breath. Shift your focus. Your going home to people who love you. Or maybe your going home to a tough situation. Shift your focus, take a breath, put the windows down, turn the tunes up and enjoy the present moment.
We don't have to be stuck. Ever.
