Warrior Yoga Class

Whilst traveling around majestic Scotland this past October and learning more about the country’s rich history, I was once again inspired by the idea of “warrior”. The ancient peoples of Scotland were fearsome warriors who were nearly unbeatable when they united behind a cause and when they felt earnest conviction for a mission. Many other cultures have given history strong warriors as well that have carved pieces of history. The mental image of a powerful warrior, working to defend, to make change, and stopping at nothing to see justice done is riveting, but also thought-provoking. What if we harnessed some of that warrior determination, stamina, energy, and dedicated it towards the causes and missions that are important to us in our lives?

Now, before I go further, let me disclaim that I am not by any means suggesting we should all become traditional warriors like the ones mentioned above; we should practice ahimsa (non-violence) as much as we can –always if we can. What I mean to say, however, is that we could take that same ferocity of a warrior and apply to our individual and group missions in life. We could use that warrior fire to fuel and to manifest change and positivity in our world. Truth be told, we may need to be our most “warrior” selves now more than ever.

In the summer of 2013, I embarked on a yogic journey in CorePower Yoga’s Power Yoga Teacher Training. To this day, that time in my life remains in my mind as a true high point; Teacher Training will always be consider one of my greatest life experiences.

The experience left me enriched in many meaningful ways.

I went on to teach yoga, which I still obviously do; but I also found myself more involved a wonderful, kind, and healthy community, found myself a group of lifelong friends, and discovered a lot about who I am and what I want to do in this world. Yoga had become a passion of mine, and so I made an investment in myself and pursued that passion with the Teacher Training program; the ROI at the end of all of it was simply astounding.
