Look Within

You are authentic when what you say matches what you feel, think and do. Authentic people don't say "yes" when they're thinking "no" and, even more importantly, they don't say "no" when their hearts are telling them "go for it." There's no discrepancy between their inner and outer lives.

The way you overcome the slug inertia is by overpowering the voices with your action. You got this. The battle you fight is in your mind. Slow down, get still, take a few breaths, shut the tapes off and zip up your jacket and GO!

Even mighty New York City, with over 8 million people, must go hat in hand to Albany to request permission to reduce city speed limits, install red light cameras, open their courts at night, or raise taxes other than those imposed on property.

If we believe that anything is possible, we create an internal narrative that supports that idea. Belief invites us to "be on the lookout" so we can gather evidence to support our theory. Once confirmed we begin to weave the belief into the pattern, fabric and garment of our lives.

Let's End Burnout in the Movement

It takes courage to radically change direction towards a more sustainable and healthy movement for justice. But change makers owe nothing less to the millions of community members impacted by the economic injustices they fight for every day. If we can truly support one another and open our hearts, we can connect and create a radical solidarity.

Too often in exercise and yoga classes students are most concerned with keeping the legs straight and locked while trying to get the hands on the floor in a forward fold. Accomplishing this move does not matter for general function and can be injurious if done incorrectly.

Why the Floor Is Your Friend

Stacy Barrows | Posted 07.13.2015 | Healthy Living
Stacy Barrows

The floor, after all, is for foot traffic. It's hard... needs a good cleaning, and is much farther away from our derrières than the comfy sofa. The floor has a bad rep. But as a movement therapist, I have learned that the floor is my friend. Here are three reasons why:

What is specific to Electric Yerevan is that the protests were not led by any political leader, from either the ruling or opposition parties. It was a purely social movement led by young people and joined by the senior generation.

I'm going out on a limb and say most people don't even consider doing yoga in their backyards. Even among yogi friends, it's a rare bird that takes a mat outdoors to soak in the treasures summer serves up on the lawn.

The act of doing a good deed for someone else makes oneself feel as good as (if not better than) the recipient. We aren't talking about paying someone's student loans off or remodeling someone's house.

I watch Dance Moms every week. In some ways it's a guilty pleasure, in others it's an opportunity for introspection on my own work as a dance instructor.

Just Breathe

Here's a challenge: name the word and/or action that will get you through your own slump. Write it down (and share it below!). Put it where you'll see it. Look at it again and again. Take it in. Own it. Complete it. Be it. Repeat it. When you do, you'll blow beyond your negative self-perceptions and external projections, fixing your gaze instead on powerful truths inside you.

Siobhan Davies: Human-Nature (VIDEO)

It all stems from a fascination with our relationship to movement. When Siobhan 'Sue' Davies CBE took her first steps on the dance stage at 17, no one assumed that the art student had never danced before. But the lack of a classical education was more freeing than restrictive, allowing her to perform and choreograph however she saw fit.

This exercise will give you a chance to view your life as the force of energy that you are. When you're done, you'll have a clearer view into the things that cost and feed your energy, along with things that help you conserve it. This kind of awareness is the essential beginning of any change.

If you're still rocking out your New Years resolution, congratulations -- you are in a select bunch. Most people who make resolutions quit by the middle of January. This gets me thinking not just about resolutions, but also about quitting in general.
