If it doesn’t CHALLENGE you then it won’t CHANGE you!

We all start off a New Year with all these “Resolutions” that we want to do. Things to better our self, new things we want to try, bad habits we want to drop. But how many of us ACTUALLY stick to these resolutions for the WHOLE year?

Anyone? I’m going to be honest, not me. I am terrible at sticking to anything, even though I know it will do me good in the long run.

So why is it so freaken hard? My conclusion…we get stuck in a rut, we get WAY too comfortable with the way our lives are and we are straight up TERRIFIED of the unknown!

How can we stop this vicious cycle? Seriously, any suggestions would help. But here’s a suggestion to all of you:

This year, practice yoga as if your life depends on it…BECAUSE IT DOES!

Consider that your “best life” happens only when you are present. This is where you have access to love, joy, connection, freedom, empowerment and possibility. This “best life” depends on your commitment to making self care a priority and a necessity, instead of looking at it as a luxury that you may or may not have time for. The life you want DEPENDS on you taking care of yourself. Discover a higher level of presence and access to vitality, power and freedom ON and OFF the mat.

How can you do this? Great question.

Here at Spotted Dog Yoga we have initiated our 2020 CHALLENGE! We have 4 different challenge levels, so there is something for everyone.

“If it doesn’t challenge you, then it won’t change you!”

Stop by the Front Desk for more details and to get your name added to the chart. Challenge enrollment is 100% FREE! So there’s NO EXCUSE.

Need another suggestion on how to get out of this “rut” we call life?
