"Most people overestimate what they can do in one year and underestimate what they can do in ten years."
The New Year is the traditional time for making goals and resolutions, strategizing plans for positive change, and promising that this time you will really relinquish your bad habits, live an enabled and inspired life and do all the things you have always wanted to do.
Sometimes this can be a recipe for frustration, self judgment and feelings of short coming. But if we approach our aspirations with the proper mindset, we will live from a place of inspiration rather than discouragement. If we pair constant evaluation (svadyaya, the yogic principle of self-study), with a great deal of self acceptance and gentleness (ahimsa, or non-violence), we can work towards positive change, embracing the learning life as a constant work in progress, instead of some sort of end goal to be attained.
This January, think about where you would like to be in 10 years. The small and meaningful changes that you make on a daily basis now - changes in the way you view the world, allocate your time, speak to your loved ones, prioritize self-care, feed your body, and utilize your unique energy and talents - will open doors and pave the way for your bright and meaningful future in the years to come. This is not to say that our dreams won't come with challenges, but living an intentional life with an open heart that is fully engaged in today, will have us prepared.
We are very excited to see what our studio future holds in the capital of Pennsylvania, as we open the doors of om my yoga Harrisburg warehouse of this month. Please check Facebook regularly to see the progress, and schedule updates. We thank you for your support and positive encouragement as we embark on a new adventure this year. This space will allow us to share so many new offerings with the community, and we can't wait to expand our creativity!
We would also love to ring in this new year with many of you on January 1st during our annual time of celebration, positive intention setting and 108 Sun Salutations!
Wishing you love, light and a year full of blessings.
See you at om,
