Be here, right in this moment, in this body. Breathing into the experience. Be attentive, focusing on exactly what is needed to fully experience the form each pose. A Warrior must, at all times, be present, ready for anything that may arise. When we are truly grounded, we are in that present moment, at one with whatever is happening. Standing our ground is not fixed and rigid: it is solid yet adaptable. We also find courage, the willingness to take a risk. Often we might fall out of a pose, yet instead of feeling like we failed, there’s a new sense of inner power – we’ve experienced exactly what we feared, and we survived! We learn the battle isn't outside of us, yet inside of us. Because when we’re truly in our power, with the courage to look at everything, clarity of mind, and non- attachment, there is nothing to fight within, either. When we don’t have expectations, we are free to enjoy everything for exactly what it is. And we can accept ourselves just as we are, too.
This class focuses strength of body and mind.
