I cant' do yoga because

I Can’t Do Yoga Because…

…I’m not flexible enough.
…I’m not strong enough.
…I don’t have very good balance.
…I don’t look good in Spandex.
…yoga is for sissies.
…I’ll feel like a clumsy oaf in a room full of people who know what they’re doing.

Many of these concerns are real and can feel legitimate to the person experiencing them; however, I believe that they all ultimately come from the basic fear of being judged. By others, by the teacher, and most damagingly, by themselves. Let’s look more closely, shall we?

Thoughts from Teacher Training
It is so great to be here in these first weeks, when there is so much enthusiasm, nervous energy, and open hearts. There really aren’t that many opportunities in this life to go into experiences where we are that open, vulnerable, and immersed in learning. We at the training never take it for granted that the experience is special and important for all who attend.

From the Annals of our Annual General Meeting
There’s something I have to admit to business types when they ask me about my ‘business strategy.’ Well, I don’t have one! I didn’t take a single business course in University. The Moksha Modo community is a yoga-activist, preventative-medicine, arts-supporting community-fam-jam. Studio owners share a lot of passions, but ‘business’ is not usually one of them.

I had one of those big, profound life experiences two weeks ago, and the effects of it are still reverberating throughout each and every day. I had the extreme privilege of watching a baby come into the world here at our home.

I remember once watching Baba Hari Das, then a long time teacher of mine, quietly build a rock wall. I was sitting far away so he didn’t see me. It was early morning and he was alone. Watching an 80 year old slowly lift massive rock after rock and patiently find the right fit for each particular stone was deeply impactful for me.
