Drishti = Gaze

This technique of gazing at a focal point in your yoga practice can help you draw your eyes from wandering around, to instead drawing your eyes, and subsequently your mind, inward so that your yoga practice becomes a moving meditation.

The methods of Drishti also show up in how you live your life.

What are you focusing on? Whatever it is, that’s where your attention and energy are going.

Where your attention goes, energy flows.

Right now my attention is on teacher training starting this weekend! And I’m so excited and energized! AND if I look deeper, I do have attention on if I’m doing it right, or how others perceive me and what and how I am operating the studio. By writing this post I’m aware that I’m putting Drishti where I don’t want it to go.

Awareness to my Drishti gives me the power to change it. I can shift my drishti off of what I don’t want to be for and on what I am doing and who I want to be!

Put your on what you want to have happen and be for it!

🔥Come check out a class at Yoga Ya Ya!

You are ready now.

If you’re a student at Yoga Ya Ya or follow this page or any other Baptiste Power yoga affiliate you’ve heard those words...
You are ready now.

What does that really mean? You can probably guess it doesn’t mean you are ready now to do everything perfectly!

⭐️It doesn’t mean you know everything there is to know.
⭐️It doesn’t mean you won’t fail.

READY means you are open to learn and bounce back from failure.

READY Means beginning.

Our 200RYT teacher training starts in October and there’s space available in the training for you to begin.

⭐️You are ready. It’s your choice to believe that.

SHIFT-verb-MOVE or cause to move from one place to another, especially over a small distance.

In Baptiste methodology
TRUE NORTH ALIGNMENT
is an example of all the shifts! Movements like...
⭐️ground down the four corners of the feet
⭐️soften the joints
⭐️from the skin to the muscle to the bone, hug in
⭐️shoulder blades move towards the spine and press into the body
⭐️draw in to create full expression out

By incorporating these actions into your body during a power yoga class, little shifts have huge impact on your physical body.

How does SHIFT show up off of your yoga mat?

To explain, I first have to shout out @shift2lead who is my coach and mentor. Along with her online studio @heartandgritpoweryoga (check them out!) she has been an integral part in the success and growth of Yoga Ya Ya in 2020. Through the Baptiste methodology and Gina‘s own teachings I have practiced in action how to SHIFT my limiting thinking through Yoga Ya Ya as a business, a teacher training school, an online yoga studio, and an in person OPEN brick and mortar studio.

Sometimes I STRUGGLED. The shift, to move, to make the decisions, but MOSTLY-it was empowering and life-changing for me and studio changing for Yoga Ya Ya! We have managed to grow in so many ways during these uncertain times.

Thank you Gina for your friendship and your mentorship - for the huge impact you’ve had on our community from across the country!

Gina is also leading the anatomy and MORE portions of our upcoming teacher training starting in October! If you want more information link in bio

As the owner of Yoga Ya Ya I have to make a lot of decisions. I can always look to the Baptiste Methodology for guidance.

We recently had to pivot/shift dates for the teacher training program. And now I see there’s a chance for possibility.

In the methodology we learn to LOOK- Look for what’s inside you and what is possible in the areas you want to transform.

Possibility is one of the Three Source Principles of Baptiste Power Yoga. When we say possibility, we are in choice, a course of action, or a solution.

We believe being curious about what’s possible keeps us awake to our lives!

Check out the new teacher training dates or as we call them the new possibilities.

Did you feel like you missed out? Well here’s your sign! You Are invited to sign up for our teacher training today! For more information link in bio!

We have a zoom call today with me/Lori to answer any questions you have about this teacher training. It’s at 1 PM CST

Soften like AIR
1. Thoracic spine draws in
2. Upper arm bones back
3. Shoulder blades move towards the spine and press into the body

Although we don’t say in teaching yoga “open up your chest or open up your heart” (if you’re teacher at ya Ya does, let me know 🤣)

Soften like air partially means stretch open your chest or create space on the front side of your body.

Now, off the mat we can talk about “opening up your heart.”

I was just in the gym finishing my swim getting changed and a girl walked in and announced to the two of us in the locker room TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY! We had a fun interaction - happy birthday - oh you look 22. But I was struck by her openness. She walked into a room with two people she didn’t know and shared with us. I was struck by how in my own life I often keep things to myself. Sometimes by holding things in you close yourself off in a way that you start to live from that way of being. When I live my life open and honest and in a sharing way with others I find that when I need people they are there and I have the ability to reach out. I have people who see me who know me and care about me. Being open doesn’t always come easy to me but it’s the way I choose and work to live. So, today is not my birthday but I will continue to share and be open on this platform, through Yoga Ya Ya, through my yoga teaching and training and with my friends and family.

Where in your life can you soften like air? Where can you let people in where can you share with others? If you’re not doing this, ask yourself why.

Photo- when Christal made me my LORI cake for my birthday! ❤️😎⭐️

One of the three themes of Baptiste training is...

GIVE UP WHAT YOU MUST

Bring into view and let go the fixed Drishti’s (perceptions) and Tadasana’s (positions) that thwart and constrain you.

What is some thing that’s getting in the way of your life that you want to give up? Sometimes the idea of what you want to let go of comes up right away. Sometimes it takes a little deeper thought. But it’s there, that thing that you MUST GIVE UP.

⭐️Limited way of thinking
⭐️Judgment
⭐️Anger
⭐️Bad habit
… And so on.

Then you can move on to what is possible for you after you give up the thing.

⭐️Less anxiety
⭐️Kind self talk
⭐️An empowered way of being
⭐️ Strength and confidence
⭐️Being loving towards others
⭐️Forgiveness
And so on!

Where in your life will you give up what you must and then what is possible for you moving forward?

BACKBENDS

Do you want to...
⭐️ lower stress and anxiety
⭐️ increase oxygen levels
⭐️open the body to deeper breathing
⭐️ help alleviate back and neck pain
⭐️Improve spine flexibility and mobility
⭐️SO MUCH MORE

In Baptiste power yoga the back bending series is called...

IGNITING
Locust 2x
Floor Bow 2x
Upward facing dog
Camel 2x
Bridge
Wheel 6x
Supta Baddha Konasana
Dead Bug

Anyone can do this entire series by allowing yourself the grace of taking variations or modifications when needed. We believe that poses do not have to look a certain way. The benefits come when you take the general shape of the pose and allow the benefits to happen.

Usually people find if they just give it a go they surprise themselves with how much the physical body is able to do regardless of the mental chatter telling you you can’t.

The vitality series is one of the most vigorous in the whole yoga practice. It has healthy cardiovascular effects and sends adrenaline and endorphins throughout the body and it is said backbends add years to your life!

Create space for something new.

At Yoga Ya Ya we teach to creating space in your physical body through yoga practice. We also practice making space in our lives to be authentic.

“Regardless of how you feel about it, any area of your life where the energy is stuck or contracted or you feel disempowered has some in authenticity present. Perhaps you can’t see it, but it’s there! If you can locate it and tell the truth about it, you access great energetic freedom. It opens up the future like blank pages in a book, available to be filled by new ways of being.”
BARON BAPTISTE

Take some time today to write down a few places in your life where you feel stuck. Practice being honest with yourself and looking to what you have been avoiding. Dig deep.

At Yoga Ya Ya we have created a physical space in the studio for you to come move and work through where you are stuck physically and also in your life.

If you’re not sure where to start sign up for a class. You are welcome here.

One of the pillars of Baptiste Power yoga is Tapas. Tapas is derived from the Sanskrit definition “tap” which means “to burn”. We practice Baptiste Power Yoga in a room heated to about 95° to be to bring present tapas.

With the room hot while you practice yoga your layers of resistance drop away and this is a way to get out of your comfort zone. You are doing a hard thing and you are OK and you can continue. As you start to sweat you’re able to become present to your body right where you are and with what you’re doing. This is a chance for you to stay centered and present in the moment.

Practicing staying on your mat in the heat while doing yoga poses and being able to stay translates out into your life. When you repeatedly practice doing something hard and staying with it and moving through it and coming out on the other side you’re able to access that strength in your life. Whether it’s at work, with family or friends, any situation that’s hard or a struggle, you can stay with move through and come out the other side.

Join us for a class this week. You are welcome here.
