Welcome to your 30 Minute Intermediate Power Yoga Flow.
This is a really special class I’ve lined up for you today!
Say hello to your power vinyasa class to strengthen the whole body, connect with breath and find your courage. Together we’ll stretch, work and flow through lateral movements of the spine as we move with a mindful connection to breath and build our energetic capacity.
This is a yoga sequence for a whole body, mind and soul connection, to go deeper, and to cultivate strength from within so you can live your yoga off the mat – a lesson that is close to my heart right now.
I created the JJ community when I was 25, it’s grown up with me (literally), and has reached a point where we’re both experiencing our fair share of growing pains, and truthfully it’s a little scary to realize this yoga community is now more than just me.
It’s got a team behind it and a rapidly growing family of yoga students, and it’s demanding that I evolve and become a courageous leader (which is uncomfortable and confronting AF).
This is how I arrived at a crossroads that’s requiring that I take my strength and courage off the yoga mat and into the world.
I’ve had many breakdowns and breakthroughs over who to be, how to live in integrity, how to strategize, how to lead a team… and finally I surrendered and said yes to someone helping me. This someone is a business mentor for female entrepreneurs who want to lead with love, and I AM SO excited (and admittedly nervous) to start working with her. But I won’t lie to you, asking for and agreeing to receiving help was really difficult, but it was a necessary request if I’m to not only continue this journey, but also enjoy it
This is how I’m taking my practice off the yoga mat.
The same way we can stay in a hard posture, listen to our bodies, and come out stronger…I can lean into this fear, ask for help, and come out a better individual and leader.
Which brings us to your practice today, an intermediate power flow which is designed to challenge you a bit. We’ll move through a dynamic warmup sequence that links breath to movement, and then flow through a side focus class (think creating length in the spine and along your sides) to create space in your body. Just as important, we’re going to focus on building the inhalation, lung and energetic capacity which in turn will build our capacity to deal with and face adversity.
Together, we’ll create a sense of strength, a sense of I CAN DO THIS, and a sense of resiliency and capability to support us off the yoga mat (where the real shit happens).
My yoga practices give me the courage to say yes to this community, yes to bravely leading, yes to investing in my business, and yes to living my journey.
Let your yoga practice be this for you too so you can bravely lead your own journey.
All my courage,
