I’ve taken up hot yoga at a local studio and have experienced benefits both mentally and physically. 

After my first class I was sitting, breathing when I thought to myself I’m going to throw up…NOW. I went into the bathroom and had this massive release. It wasn’t even food I had eaten. It was gross toxins that had been sitting in my body for lord knows how long that got loosened by the movements and breathing. The instructors said it was normal for things to “come up” after a class but very rarely do things actually come up. When I got into my car I let out a huge release and began sobbing in happiness because I actually pushed myself to do something. For so long I would lay in bed all day and feel worthless at the end of the day because I didn’t do anything, but today I did. I sweat a shitload, pushed past a lot of mental blocks, and did my body a favor. I remember laying in the final pose and hearing my brain tell me, “you did it. Thank you”. I’ve been getting better and have even noticed a little muscle building. I’m doing yoga for the mental aspects, but if physical ones come too that’s okay by me! 



I am a leaf. 

Created from something much larger than itself, that has been created by something much larger than anything else-the universe.

Time never stops. 

Rocketing forward derailing anything in its path onto a new course. Intention depends on time, without time intention would have no train to travel on. 

Inner peace is the key to happiness. 

It is often easier to wollow in our states of unhappiness and unfulfillment than it is to ignight a fire deep enough inside ourselves to create change. Often times we remain in states of discomfort in fear failure will lead to more of those emotions. Breaking free from your own “stopping thoughts” always leads you to self-empowerment and allows you to push your mind/body boundaries.
