Ishvara Pranidhana /// SURRENDER

Things look a little different this weekend for my last weekend of YTT (yoga teacher training) and this morning’s yin practice (via a Zoom call), we focused on the intention of surrender, or “Ishvara Pranidhana” —in Sanskrit, ishvara pranidhana can be translated to mean “God & Surrender” — and as I was laying in pigeon pose (a hip opener, which btw, we store LOTS of emotions in our hips) – the tears just fell….. I couldn’t pinpoint why – was it because life is weird and uncertain right now (isn’t it always?) or because I am feeling the emotions of the collective and the fear some are feeling now…… or perhaps it was because the journey of YTT has been one of the most life changing experiences I have had thus far in my 38 years and it’s ending, or perhaps it was because I have been emotional this week because it’s almost that time of the month, or perhaps it’s because I’m going through a divorce and the emotional rollercoaster that comes with it. Perhaps it was the fact that I am so incredibly blessed with so many amazing souls who love me and who I love who have shown up and held space, given a hug or just simply told me it’s okay……. Or perhaps it was a combination of all of the above. Whatever it was, I kept my mind focused on the intention and I allowed myself to feel through whatever it was that was coming through. With all of this uncertainty and emotions running high, I feel so strongly that we give ourselves grace and the opportunity to get still and release as we need to. And to simply be where we are.

I encourage you, beautiful souls, to allow yourself to FEEL. To release. To be. To Surrender.

Let me know how you’re feeling through all of this and if you need some relief, some focus, some soul soothing activities to get your mind a little more calm, check out the FREE resources I have available to you. ALL my courses are FREE right now. And of course my book is available on Amazon as well.
