In this way yoga helps us honor the uncertainty while at the same time looking to the future with courage and conviction.

Module 1: Intro and Loving Kindness
You’re not letting the side down if you have a wobble – be kind to yourself. It is natural to feel frightened and concerned in this situation – you will have moments when you’re not the person you want to be. It’s what we do with them that makes the difference – so don’t beat yourself up.

Module 3: Cultivating Openheartedness
We need to tune into ourselves and come from a place of equanimity before we can help others. Without that, I find myself resentful and bad tempered, snappy and dog in a manger and I don’t really understand why. That’s the work we’ve been doing, now we are ready to move on. Now that we’ve regained our equanimity, lets open our heart to ourselves and others.

Module 4: Who will you be now?
Now that we’ve grounded and opened our hearts, what do you need and who will you be? What are the things that bring you joy and how can you bring more joy to others. It’s easy to have patterns that are not serving you well?

💙 as a daily planner
In 2017 I was finishing up my yoga teacher training when I turned 50. I gained such tools - on and off the mat - that I was able to find get clarity about who I am and who I want to be.
I used these techniques to figure out what I want this part of my life to look like. Yoga gives me energy, vitality, clarity: a new direction. It gives this to me every day, in every aspect of my life - it helped me keep flexible clearing out mum's flat in London in a bonkers two weeks and I immediately turned to Yoga during this pandemic. Every day, I look for how I can use yoga to uplift my life.
My approach to yoga is to tune into what you need today and how that builds with slow, straightforward poses and off the mat techniques.
In this case, what I needed was and understanding of where I was standing - so I could step forward with strength . Yoga - on and off the mat - is a way to keep your body humming, to tap into who you are and to reconnect to yourself so you can access what you need today, whatever that might be.
Antonia came out of nowhere but in perfect timing becuase I needed a place where I could find myself .... and learn how to breath actually. Anytime you can teach someone to breath spritutally, emotionally, mentally - that's bigger than just yoga. ~ Chivonne Battle
