How will you meet your edge in your yoga practice today?
From Baron Baptiste’s Journey Into Power:
You challenge yourself on a physical level, and the mental resistances rush up right to the surface. At those moments, you have a choice: You can either break down or break through…
The edge is where we come right up against ourselves and what we can do and be. It is the boundary between where we are and where we grow, the place of comfortable discomfort, where all growing and healing happens.
The edge is the point in every pose when you are still within your capacities but are challenging yourself to go just a little bit farther. Stepping up to this edge and daring to leap is how you break through and thus break with old ways of being.
Sometimes your edge is learning to do less, to be more tolerant, more patient, more compassionate toward yourself.

For the next 365 days, you can find me on my mat. A few thoughts on my devotion to my practice…
I've discovered that most of us begin this practice out of a deep need to heal, and I believe in and trust fully the potential of yoga to bring us that healing.
When I teach, I will ask you to go within… and to trust what comes up.
I am a seeker.
I invite you to pause for a moment.
