We have a known tradition at Strala. "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" is played during Corpse Pose (final relaxation where we all lie down for a few minutes and breathe naturally after working our butts off during class). The body and mind can't actually rest unless it's worked out all the kinks. Same in life. Your dreams can come true (the universe can align with your intention) when you work hard consistently through obstacles without complaint. We put in the work and see what happens. That's how I've approached my life and work life, which I see no separation between. Put in the work and see what happens. What makes sense will happen. Work hard, breathe deep, don't complain, and enjoy what comes.
Well a huge dream of mine has come true. I'm working with Jane Fonda. We met a couple months ago. She was gathering a couple interesting fitness experts to create and launch a DVD and product line. The people had to fit in with her philosophy that fitness is for everyone and something that you never stop doing your entire life. It should be fun, approachable, and energizing. Yes! Yoga shouldn't be intimidating or scary, and there are so many benefits available for everyone who practices regularly. Foot putting behind head not required.
