Thomas Edison said "Genius is one percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration."
I’m no genius, but I’ve realized that everything I'm most passionate about distills to those 2 things ~ perspiration and inspiration ~ physical life and artistic life. And the relationship between them: body and imagination, sweat and storytelling, physical freedom and creative flow. After a long and frustrating experience of disconnect, yoga was key to unlocking my physical power and imaginative resources.
We can talk about why it works, later. Point is, ever since I made this discovery, I’ve had missionary zeal about it. I love to spread the love.
You don’t need to feel like “the yoga type.” The only thing that needs to be flexible is your attitude. This isn’t about impressive poses, or a yoga booty or thigh gap. This is about bringing your realest real and opening to the possibility that it is enough. That your body is just right, your movement is prayer, your story matters, your life is art. You have the right to be a mover, maker, creator. To let your imagination grow wild. This is about helping you find an authentic way to move a feeling of flow, a sense of freedom, an experience of beauty truly your own that you can let go into with devotion, that leads you to your center. I know from my own stumbling, bumbling, ever humbling, nearly 20-year practice Source can be found in sweat and sweetness, laughter, tears, and tired muscles, beating heart and full, blessed breath.
Move ecstatically, freely, move from your heart. Move without fear of doing it wrong. If you’re breathing you’re doing it right. If you love yourself when you move this way, you’re doing it right. If moving like this feels divine, you’re doing it right. Keep going, keep flowing Create your yoga day by day You are exactly where you need to be.
Don't sweat it.
