Is It Possible to Share Too Much?

Is It Possible to Share Too Much?

Why do we share? Whether it's in school or training, online or in person, how do we know when it's the right time just to listen? And when is sharing good for someone else? When is it good for you?  A couple thoughts come to mind, which might have something to do with unweighting.  It's possible we could be just a little less responsible, for everything.   1) Take care of you first. I think it's important not to guess too much about what's useful for other people, and what's not. Really in so many ways, we have no idea about other…
Create the Community You’re Looking For

Create the Community You’re Looking For

A few years ago I had a talk with Joe Cross - the guy who created Fat Sick and Nearly Dead, and shares all around the world now about getting back to health. We were waiting to speak at MindBodyGreen's annual Revitalize conference in Arizona, and I was going up after him. I knew a bit of Joe's story, how he cured himself with juice and got off all the bad stuff. But we were getting behind-the-scenes, and there was something new here.   Doing the right thing doesn't always stick.   And he got to see this everywhere. Over and…
It’s Good to Get Things Wrong Sometimes

It’s Good to Get Things Wrong Sometimes

Ever feel anxious about getting things wrong?  It's ok.  Actually, it might be better than ok.  Because getting it wrong could be your best way to get it right.   Steer clear of being an expert. Even when you're a teacher or leader, try not to put yourself in a position where you need to be so right all the time.   I know that's tough to do when you're supposed to be in charge. "If I'm not right, why would anyone listen to me?" Well there are lots of good reasons, that have something to do with how you are,…
The Who’s What’s and When’s of Strala Training Courses

The Who’s What’s and When’s of Strala Training Courses

Strala follows a mindset and approach for moving well in your life, finding ease even when the challenges get big. We practice this through yoga, tai chi, and Traditional Chinese Medicine.  Taking good care of yourself is the starting point for everything. So we begin by trading an old belief that doesn’t work for a new one that does.   The old belief tells us to forget our uniqueness, and work really hard to become a copy. Someone else’s ideas, someone’s else’s body.  The new belief is that what we feel is uniquely our own, and uniquely important.   When…
Is It Good to Combine Yoga and Tai Chi?

Is It Good to Combine Yoga and Tai Chi?

Is it a good idea to combine different forms - like tai chi and yoga - together in one class? This idea of fusion comes up quite a lot, and the answer might have something to do with purpose. What do we want to share with people? Why are we looking to mix things up?   Strala follows a mindset, approach, and set of principles for moving well in your life. We practice this together now through a few different form vocabularies, including yoga, tai chi, traditional Chinese medicine, and also our regular human vocabulary - how we navigate through…
The What’s When’s and How Much’s of Food

The What’s When’s and How Much’s of Food

How to handle the what's and when's and how much's of food is a hugely important topic. And good answers here are as numerous as we are. Because the good answers come from you, from each one of us. Of course, there are also a whole lot of answers out there that aren't so good. It's why diets fail without fail. They don't come from you. They come from some other place, some other person. So this is a complex issue. Just like life. At the same time, as unique as we all are, there is a structure we can…
