June Strala Home Calendar: Search Within, Create Your Own Unique Path

No Comments
Hi Friends!

Search Within. Create Your Own Unique Path.

One of the greatest benefits of yoga is self-realization. When we practice ease, connection with what’s inside and all around, bringing what we are into harmony, we give ourselves space to notice what’s going on. We notice what we need. And our uniqueness starts to rise up.

It can be scary sometimes, seeing ourselves for who we are. Especially when so much of the outside message tells us to be like everyone else. Fit in. Don’t rock the boat. The outside and inside messages don’t always match up.

Thankfully our community here supports the inner confidence we need, to be fully ourselves and go after using our energy for good. You are not alone. When we search within, with the support and encouragement of those around us, we create our own unique path. We need you to realize who you are, be well enough to step into your confidence, and use your energy for good. We’re all on the same circle here. You’re important.

We’ve packed this month’s calendar with loads of practices to help you search within, feel the support of this community, and create your own unique path. We’re so grateful to practice with you at StralaHome.

Your breath is always there, ready to carry you. Take a moment, soften, and let your breath move with you.#stralayoga #softness #taichi #wellbeing
Just as much as this can be in your yoga and tai chi, softness is an all day, everyday, everywhere practice you can carry into your kitchen, meeting room, or wherever you’re getting around each day. It takes practice, to replace all our old habits like tension and rigidity, with new habits of moving well, in harmony with our whole selves.

When things are easy, relax. When things are hard, relax even more. Your neurological and chemical state determines the impact an event will have on you. So when things get hard, it’s even more important that we support ourselves to stay easy inside. It takes practice, it’s important in so many ways, and we can do it. 🌿 #stralayoga #wellbeing #meditation #yoga

It was a tough lesson for me to learn that I was doing hard things, the hardest way. Like so many of you, I want to do a good job, help people be happy and have a good life as well. We all have a breaking point and hopefully it’s while something is repairable. I noticed things were hard and felt like I needed to work harder, when I really needed to learn how to be softer. I leaned into my family of guides, dove into #shiatsu with #samberlind and #taichi with Mike. Hard to learn from your partner so I read all the books and practiced on my own for a long time. I took what I learned into everything and everything improved. I learned how to move better when I practiced and led yoga and every other moment. I learned how to soften myself and allow my breath to move me. I realized how silly and not useful is to be so egotistical and jump ahead of my breath when all the while the breath is right there, waiting for you to soften so it can lift and actually carry you with every inhale, and take the pressure off and make it easier to be right here, with every exhale.
Once you experience softness you don’t go back to force. There is no fight, no argument, no opposition. It is just irrelevant and not useful. Something to back away from. Force creates isolation and disconnection in yourself and makes hard things harder. Yes you can do hard things hard, but you will break, and you are spreading force around as you go. It’s not your fault.
Softness creates connection, harmony and possibilities for you and the world around you.
If this is new for you and pulls you in a bit, here is a simple practice to experience.
Move yourself around from your middle until you are actually comfortable.
Soften yourself physically, mentally, emotionally.
Notice how you feel.
Notice your breath moving you like a big ball, globe, out and in. Notice up and down become out and in.
Take a big inhale and lift your arms up. Wait for your inhale to do this for you. #softness #taichi #yoga #stralayoga #wecandohardthings
Exhale and relax your arms down.
Notice how you feel.
Hang here for a bit. Don’t jump up.
Big hugs and lots of softness.
♥️
