Teacher Reading Series - Carly Grace: "I made my life and arrow..."

Most often I hear those unfamiliar with yoga say, I am not flexible, I can't do yoga. What I hear is, yoga is unfamiliar to me; thus, I am scared. What are we really afraid of? What is really the obstacle holding us back? The resistance may vary a bit from person to person; ultimately, those of you whom are here have at some point experienced some level of resistance & you've decided to show up- to be seen. In allowing yourselves to unravel on your mat, to be seen in a yoga room amongst unfamiliar faces and bodies, you have begun the journey of loving yourself fully and wholly. Read More

Teacher Reading Series - Carly Grace: "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate..."

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others “

Teacher Reading Series - Carly Grace: Take a deep breath and connect...

"Take a deep breath and connect with the bigger picture, the bigger YOGA. If yoga is to yoke one another, what are we really showing up for? Everytime I think of this room, I think of the bigger Yoga, the be for one another, the show up in community, the sweat it out together, the leave this space a better version of myself- yoga. Unconditional love, it’s never about owing anyone anything; rather, it’s about the natural give and receive, the patience and grace that we all need and want, and the undying acceptance that each of us craves. Now, look what happens with love like that, it lights up the sky. Revel in the knowing, we are all more alike than we are different."
