Weekly Drishti: Lean in

Weekly Drishti: Lean in

"The best advice I've gotten in the last two weeks is - accept the support that is offered.  When serving hands want to serve you - eat, when praying hands want to lift you up - lift your hands in praise, when loving hands want to embrace you - lean in. Moments of hardship require moments of vulnerabilty, unexpected moments require you to pick up the pieces one day at a time, and chapters of challenge will one day seem like mere moments in time. Lean in and let people love on you. ”

"Take time today to focus on moments that make you feel good; whether, you find these moments alone, in your yoga practice, or surrounded by friends and coworkers, pay attention. There are times when happiness is inevitable and effortless and there are times where choosing happy is your answer. A positive outlook, a choose happy mentality, and an effort to focus on the positive no matter what the situation will make a much happier version of you. Turn up the corners of your mouth, smile. ”

Weekly Drishti: Clean Slate

"Your life will inevitably have seasons, days, and moments that feel like the world has sped up and you're along for the ride. While these chapters may feel exhilarating they can also be overwhelming. Whether or not you love the excitement of the holidays, remember, they come and go.  Find solitude in the moments where you can return to your breath, to simplicity, to normality.  Find space to spend with yourself and make sure you can hear yourself breathe; after all, your breath will remind you how well you are really handling the holidays."

Weekly Drishti: Think Less, Feel More

Weekly Drishti: Think Less, Feel More

Think less, feel more.  I often tell my students, "get out of your head and into your body."  I want each person to realize the difference between his thinking mind and his reality.  The thinking mind wants to catch you in an entanglement of analysis, worry, judgment, and fear.  Your heart and your soul are separate from your thoughts. The you who listens to your thoughts is not the real you.  Soften your thoughts, relax the edges of your personality, and drift into a rhythm of body and breath.
