You may think that people like me teach for the good of the Community. While that is absolutely true, I am also doing this for myself.
This Monday, I started teaching the Be More Yoga Community Sunrise Yoga Class at 7 AM. The idea was sparked when I was talking to my friend Rae and my friend Nia, from Black People Ride Bikes. We were talking on Zoom about how our schedules were all out of wack, because of the quarantine. I had been going to bed late and getting up at 9:30 AM, most days. And, while I was steadily working and getting things done, I just felt off.
When we agreed on the fact that something needed to change, because it was not serving us, we thought about how many of us might be experiencing the same thing. How could we motivate our Community to live our best lives? That is when we came up with the Sunrise Yoga idea. When we have committed to something that will hold us accountable, we are more likely to succeed.
We are only on day 3, and I already feel the difference. I am getting so much more done by lunchtime. I feel more energetic and balanced. The best thing is that my mother, the self proclaimed "Night Owl," has also hopped on board! The vibration of the entire house has shifted. We really are all connected. When we are better, the people around us get better, too.
It really is true. When we want something different, we have to start with ourselves.
Ask yourself. What can I do, right now, to improve my situation? The answer could be something as simple as getting up at o'dark thirty for a virtual yoga class.
