Monday Mantra - July 1st

“I choose to be free of energy-wasting doubts.”

Can you believe we have found our way into the second half of this year as we enter July. With Fourth of July coming up and mercury in retrograde, I felt it may be important to acknowledge the strengths we hold as individuals and letting go of the thoughts that fill our mind.

We can practice this energy wasting release on our mats this week by doing a practice with some quick flowing postures. Stir up the energy and break apart all those tight areas not serving us. Another thing to do is try an inversion, any inversion! Just get the blood flow to the brain and quite literally, change your perspective.

Off your mat, I invite you to further this idea of living in the moment, take one day at a time, put down the technology and actually live in your life. Take your time and don’t rush to new things. Take your shoes off and walk through the grass, go to yoga, just exist to release without clinging onto anything in particular that doesn’t serve you.

-Namaste, Michi P.
