Everything We’ve Ever Been Told About Achieving is Wrong

Everything We’ve Ever Been Told About Achieving is Wrong

I've learned something incredibly valuable over the last several years, and it goes against everything I've been taught about achieving in my life. It's been a revolution for me, allowing me to achieve more and actually enjoy the process of working toward my goals, without stress, tension, struggle and defeat. When I started to dive into what I was discovering, I found there was a strict rulebook in place for life.  If we follow it diligently, work really hard, keep our head down, and push on through all the stress and struggle, it tells us we might just get to something good, someday.

What if the struggle wasn't real and the only thing real is the tension we create to make ourselves believe we are working hard enough & to shut out the fear that we aren't good enough and don't deserve happiness unless we are miserable first.

How to make your yoga – and your life – look like you

In 2011, a bureau chief for The New York Times identified what Strala was up to as a substantial shift in yoga and wellbeing.  We were just getting started then (it still feels this way), but as Strala keeps evolving, we're beginning to have a better sense of what she saw.   In the last 80 years, every form of yoga has focused on instructing poses. Strala instructs movement. Why do we do this? Where does it come from?   Instructing Poses Instructing poses puts yoga into a world of correct and incorrect, based on what the pose looks like. In this world, everybody tries to…
