Absorbing your Instructor’s Guidance through Intuition

Absorbing your Instructor’s Guidance through Intuition

As teachers, it is our job to hold a container for your personal growth and connection. We will guide you through flow to the best of our ability, and most likely, the majority of the guidance and wisdom we share will feel right—or at least it should, given that we’re the professionals—but in the end, we cannot be both in our bodies and in yours. Youmust be your own advocate. If something feels off, wrong, or just isn’t vibing with where you happen to be at (of mind, body, or soul) in the moment, hold off, speak up, and choose something that feels right.

Check out this insanely eclectic BFPY Community Playlist! I swear, I had SO much fun creating this from the pool of suggestions you all contributed to. It served as a beautiful reminder of just how unique our community is. Our interest in music varies across the board, but it goes to show how different forms of sensation make individuals feel ALIVE! The coolest thing is, while some of us are head banging to heavy metal, others are swaying to acoustic jams, or shaking to pop songs, we have a common love that brings us together: self care, self love, and celebration of self through yoga!

Sitting in Emptiness

Sitting in Emptiness

The mere acceptance of my being empty quickly and organically transformed my mindset into one of infinite abundance and possibility. I went beyond not judging myself for how I got to the place I was in, and stopped forcing, hoping, trying, or intending to be anywhere else. Through that, I fostered a sense of love and compassion for the emptiness I felt, saw it as something helpful rather than hindering, and grew excited for the prospect of a day where truly anything is possible.

From Polar Vortex to the Growth of Spring: My Six Week Transformation

From Polar Vortex to the Growth of Spring: My Six Week Transformation

All of the sudden, I’m looking around and seeing a home that I feel nothing but pride for. The time I put into work almost immediately feels more valued and appreciated because I am working for this: for quality of life, for sacred space, for coming home to four walls that feed my soul rather than bar it. I recognize, now, that in order to keep growing of mind, body, and spirit, I must place myself in the position to thrive.
