Just got done coaching the talented @malinberg through 8 hours of private yoga over the last 30 hours.
Heres what I realized today from working with Malin:
Yoga is not about toning your triceps, getting a workout, or doing Instagram worthy shapes with your body. It’s not even anatomical discourse/conversation.
It’s a deep spiritual practice of mindful action. Of waking up what’s asleep. Of saying no to certain movements to unlock the potential of dormant abilities. Of realizing that your body is one system of energy and that it is your cosmic duty to reorganize that energy when any one movement pulls you away from being centered. This understanding and practice of responsible energy management is yoga and is what sets up true spiritual living off the mat.
How do I define spiritual living? Moving through the world with the deep understanding of how any of your actions affects the whole. That’s why yoga is great. Because if you can understand the effects of one action within the system of your body, (and the required actions you must contribute to create stability) it lays the foundation for true universal consciousness.
The impressive physical feats are simply a byproduct of doing this deeply introspective work. If you are doing any shape with your body without introspection/mindful movement, sorry but that is not yoga. I don’t care if you can balance on one hand or put your leg behind your head. The shape in and of itself is not yoga.
It takes someone who is deeply aware, physically and mentally tenacious, and truly spiritual to do this divine practice, nonetheless endure eight hours of private coaching with me - so I can definitely say Malin is a one of a kind person and student!
I love teaching. You end up learning so much.

Last year I was in a yoga class in Asheville, NC and heard a song on the teacher’s playlist that totally inspired me. It was ambient and vibey and by the musician Tycho.
At that point I hadn’t spent a lot of time listening to music like that but something inside of me kept saying “I can make something like this!” Well, here we are 20 months later and I’m about to board a plane to do the European leg of my “Iceland” album tour. I’ll be debuting the music at a few yoga studios in Europe with a stop in of course, Iceland :) It’s crazy how anything you manifest starts with a thought, and more specifically because of a belief that you can make something happen.
So if you want to make something happen, pay attention to your thoughts and believe that you can do it. No one will do it for you, and it won’t happen any other way.

The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.
I've seen this aphorism many times in the last few weeks, and so I would be remiss not to write about this Joseph Campbell quote in this month's DEEPER blog.
First, let's be clear about what this statement means: In order to discover the treasure - to transform into the most magnificent version of you - you will have to walk into the cave you fear. You will have to do the work you don’t want to do. No one else but you.
Here’s my personal interpretation of this: no one is coming to rescue you. No one is going to make you write that business plan. No one is going to tell you to stop smoking or to loose those 30 pounds. No one will magically fix your relationship. There is no hero in the story of your life but you. I'm not saying that there aren't going to be characters that you'll meet along the way that can help, but what I’m saying is that it is ultimately YOU who will have to walk into that scary and dark cave alone.
No one is coming to rescue you. Only you can do the work.
The good news is…YOU are the hero! And here’s a three-part plan to help you begin the hero's journey... Read on here:
