It’s been a couple weeks since I wrote to you. I’ve been bouncing around the globe leading Strala and on other adventures and I didn’t feel there was enough space and time for a thoughtful message until now. These messages from me to you are pretty personal, and I feel by sharing my experiences and the experiences of people I meet we can be connected in a real and applicable way to enrich our lives. Staying connected to you helps ground and inspire me so I wanted to thank you.
I’ve been to Malaysia and Singapore recently leading classes to women of many religions and am constantly in awe and reminded that as people, we all desire the same things; to be happy, give and receive love, and to live a life we feel passionately about. It really is a small world when we are able to connect through our intuition and desires. Differences become exploratory and exciting and remind us that we all are connected. The same but ever so slightly different.
When people experience Strala, they say “I felt free, I felt like I had the permission to move, and I felt connected and easy.” The more clear I have become about what I am offering the more clear the connection and the experience is. Clarity is key. It’s been so exciting also to travel and partner with health clubs to teach instructors to lead Strala, and see the same experience of freedom delivered through an exploratory difference of each Guide. Our differences are exploratory and interesting and can be put to the best use when we are open to seeing that the forest is beautiful because all the trees are different, but standing strong together in unison.
We all are so busy, and we all have the same amount of time in each day. I encourage you to practice something to help you get clear about your passions in your life. Whether it’s a daily intention, a daily meditation practice, a practice of moving with ease, or something else. Clarity is key and I wish you a clear vision and a happy life.
I’m off to India on Tuesday to lead Strala Intensives to local instructors, meet some awesome people and celebrate my design collaboration with Reebok. I hope to return with some good stuff for you!
