How To Unbalance The Stress Equation In Your Favor

No Comments
Hi Friends!


Do you want to heal? Look at how stress moves in your body and life.

If stress is going into your body and making a home in you, your body will play defense like a pro, but will have a tough time healing. Find a way to reverse that direction. Stress will come. Find a way to keep it moving on out, and let your body shift from defense to healing. Your body is a pro here, too. It will even tell you what it needs. You just have to listen.

Tara and I get to see how people work with stress a lot around the studio. It’s normal in the traditional yoga world to set all sights on getting the pose. When we have visitors from that old yoga world, we see a lot of force and strain and struggle used to push into and hold onto poses. Right up to the moment people crash on out of them.


People get injured this way. More importantly, people make a home for stress in their minds and bodies this way. All this time practicing struggle and frustration in yoga unbalances the stress equation, and sends it headlong in our direction. What we want is to unbalance things in the other direction.


Strala people are really inspiring with the stress equation. Which makes their yoga inspiring. It also makes their lives inspiring. Tara and I get happy every day because we get to be around all this. It’s a good life, we’re lucky for it.


What we see is a world with no gurus and no rules. There are no pose goals, and there is no single correct way. People here are getting into themselves, their own bodies and minds, in their own way. They’re getting free by practicing their own freedom. They’re getting intuitive and creative practicing their own intuition and creativity.


These people around us are making their own inspiring lives by practicing exactly what they want to live, right where they are, wherever they are. These people are amazing! They’re all around the world, and we all get to share this life with each other.

We all have the choice to live this way. It’s not something that exists outside of us, it’s not something we need someone else to give us. We all have it. Just get quiet enough to hear it, and build a life from what you hear.
