I just wrote a post called When The World Doesn’t See You As You See Yourself, which was the basis for this episode.

The execution of embodiment, which to me = action is what I feel in my humble opinion a giant factor in creating lasting embedded change in our lives and something that most of us lack.

We think a ton and don’t actually do anything.

I know that I stay a lot in my head. I have the knowledge. I know what needs to be done. I am fired up and completely in, and yet for a huge percentage of the times, I stay in my head.

In the post that I mentioned above, I spoke of your yoga practice being 1/2 deep focus and 1/2 pure enjoyment.

This is a teaching that was so succinctly encapsulated and driven home by Dr. Claudia Welch in one of the amazing calls in Cate Stillman’s and Dr. Welch’s Healthy Hormone’s Course.

(If you guys are interested, I cannot even begin to explain how life changing this course is)

Dr. Welch described this focus and enjoyment concept regarding meditation and as she explained it, I realized that this is applicable to everything, particularly if you are looking to create a specific outcome aka transformation.

I knew I was missing pieces of this puzzle…

So, in an effort to embody, I created a yoga class that began to get those concepts from the brain, into the body.

How do you practice focus and enjoyment in your practice? What does it feel like?

This week’s class is 37 minutes in length. I consider it to be about a level 1–2 class, and I feel beginners can absolutely give it a go.

This class is perfect for an early morning, mid afternoon, or evening class to get you back in alignment with yourself, particularly if you’re feeling out of sorts or if you are working on getting yourself to deepen the why of your yoga practice.
