Lovers! How is everyone doing? I'm overwhelmed with elation and excitement as I can officially say I'm a 200hr YTT CorePower Yoga Graduate! This has been one of the most beautiful experiences I've gone through and I can't wait to tell you ALL about it (expect a juicy blog post very soon!)
In the meantime:
- It's here! Part II of my #FlowReal campaign with GAIAM! This time, I take a deeper dive into one of my favorite topics: surrendering to the NOW (catch part I if you haven't already!)
- For the past week I've been regrouping and organizing myself, my tasks, and my projects before I begin my YTT Extensions program with CorePower. During the next 5 weeks, I'll be deepening my practice and getting ready to teach and share all of the loving goodness I've derived from YTT and the practice of yoga with my students.
I'm truly grateful for your love and support throughout my yoga journey; I can't help but smile so hard when I hear from you on Instagram and via email, and I promise you'll be the first to know once I start teaching, because sharing all of this with you and contributing to your journey is my ultimate goal.
ADRIANNA NAOMI X GAIAM - #FLOWREAL: "SURRENDER"
One of the biggest lessons I’ve derived from my yoga practice has been to surrender to the present moment and to accept that where I am right now is exactly where I need to be.
More often than not, surrendering to the now can be a difficult concept to grasp. This happens when our surroundings fail to meet our sometimes unattainable expectations. Then, we fall into the trap of wanting things to look or feel a certain way, and they don’t; we play comparison games with others, create false storylines in our heads, let the negative self-talk takeover, and completely miss the bigger picture. Does this sound familiar?
The road towards achieving our goals is not (and will never be) linear; this road is packed with twists, turns, ups and downs, tons of unexpected surprises, and numerous curve balls. Regardless of where you are at in your journey, accept that the Here and the Now is exactly where you need to be. It might not seem perfect but every event, situation, and interaction taking place in your life right now is preparing and guiding you towards your next step.
The universe works in mysterious ways and in the face of uncertainty, ride a wave of confidence and trust that as long as you do your work, things will play out exactly as they should.
