  • I have some “add ons,” such as this pink monkey whom attached herself to me and stuck for a good 20min of asana!  I’ve let go of many poses that took time and effort to get into or stole focus that I’d rather redirect.
.
The purpose is still the same: quiet the mind, laugh, center, move, and release what is stuck... unless it’s a giggling pink monkey.

  • I see your provision! 😍 💙 “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,”
‭‭2 Timothy‬ ‭3:16‬ ‭

Fervent prayer for the life God has for you never returns void! I love that we get to be together even as we learn to be together more! Let the Spirit lead and pray from your heart. Let God break you for what breaks Him. I promise life will align with the passions of your heart Because your passions will then align with His will and not yours! 💙 “So what shall I do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will also pray with my understanding; I will sing with my spirit, but I will also sing with my understanding.”
‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭14:15‬ ‭ 🎶 https://youtu.be/FsbfYHdp720

  • To that sweet couple walking around the track with their walkers and noticing “ most people take a few laps and go home “. A moment after I passed them they said “ she’s not leaving and neither are we”. Thank you to all the dad’s out there who remind us to stay the course, never give up and just keep moving! #happyfathersday #bodytrio

  • "If you resist change, you resist life." -Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev.
.
// Let It Go.

I'm sitting outside a coffee shop here in Calgary and I see this monster black #cloud looming above.

Dark clouds are messengers... they tell us the weather is about to change for the wetter.

Then, I notice the edge.

A distinct blue patch of #sky is peeking around the edge of an otherwise ominous object.

And though much of the #sunshine and blue are hidden, seeing past the edge I am reminded that beauty hasn't gone anywhere... it's merely covered.

And this is #life.

Trouble, difficulty, and #adversity find each of us at some point.

And when that happens we have a tendency to forget all the #beauty and wonder that life is.

It becomes #hard to see how far we've come, how many obstacles we've faced and conquered, or appreciate the #gifts we gain from experiences that challenge us.

But this lack of #vision is self imposed.

It is a loss of perspective. Usually one that causes us to feel small and shrink away from the hard thing we know we need to face.

We make the problem larger than it is to justify our lack of #progress.

Our fear and doubt cause us to question and maybe even stop short of going after more, bigger, and better.

But this is a trick of the #ego.

It doesn't want to experience pain, ridicule, or look bad to others when we fall or fail... so we have to remember to #moveanyway when everything screams stop, give up or quit.

Growth, in we hairless monkeys, comes largely from our #challenges.

When you find yourself in one, don't panic... like the clouds above it will eventually pass and your blue sky will return.

Everything is temporary.

Are you facing difficulty right now... how do you deal with it? Share below.

  • ♡ day 7 ♡
moving anyways as nourishment

sometimes i avoid practicing. i get into my head too much. i get “too busy.” i say yes to too many things to avoid slowing down and really paying attention to myself. or i go into full introvert-in-a-cave mode and dive into research, my studies, my millions of books.

i’m learning to notice
why i’m not willing
to move my body

i lock eyes
with the fear
and restlessness
hiding beneath
the surface

and i know
i can keep
avoiding,
deflecting,
resisting

or i can
nourish
my body
my mind
my heart
and move.

  • "We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret or disappointment." - Jim Rohn.
.
// Feel Like It.

The last few days have been #hard mentally.

I felt like I was losing touch with my #mission and that I would "never" find a way to break through or build what I want to bring to #life.

I didn't feel like I had anything to offer.

Partly, this was fatigue... and partly this was #comparison sickness.

I fell down the black hole of the interwebz where "everyone else" has it figured out and are living their #dreams.

Of course, that is bullshit.

Most of what you see online is a carefully crafted and curated collection of complete crap.
.
(How's that for alliteration?)
.
It's a small percentage of someone's day made to give the impression that everything in their life is a beer commercial: all smiles, good times, and hot chicks.

And here I am, #feeling like shit because I don't measure up.

It's rubbish.
It's a fabrication.
It's a #story in my head.

And when I feel this way I have one of two choices... I can wallow in it and make it worse, or I can remember my future and begin to #moveanyway in a positive direction.

Even though I know this... I can still fall prey to "not feeling like it". In these moments, everything seems difficult and #heavy.

It's important to remember this feeling is temporary, it's fleeting, and you have to keep going.

You have to rely on #discipline, not #motivation because guess what; the pain of not #becoming all you can exponentially outweighs the pain of moving through the tough days.

It all comes down to choice.

Will you choose today to advance yourself regardless of how you feel? Be honest below.

  • What a weird day. Woke up to no power. Have a kiddo that gets really I'll when it's that time of the month, so we headed to Grandma's house for the morning. Poor kid was miserable. Power was finally restored around 11:30, and we made it back home around 1. Took a lot to get motivated to move today, but it's done!

  • There will be people who don’t like you.

There will be people who never agree with you.

There will be people who are jealous.

There will people who call you names and talk about you behind your back. 
There will be people who do their best to tear you down and try to bring you to a level they’re comfortable with because growth is painful. 
How do you handle this? ✨Work hard
✨Stay in your lane
✨Focus on your voice, make it louder than the noise.
✨Never determine your value based off of the opinions of others. ✨Be a light for others, even if just one person sees it. Eventually lots of people will.

Do good. Be good. For good.

Your greatest gift is being true to yourself in spite of anything around you. A gift most people don’t take.

Here’s to a new week of sparkle. 📸 Dominic Mattia

  • Be mindful of the limitations that others set and speak over you. 
Your destiny is tied to your ability to believe in yourself!
When I began my doctoral program, I was told that “less than 1% of those who begin this program finish it.” In that moment I had to make a decision. I was either going to fall victim to a statistic or destroy it. I told the counselor congratulations you just met the exception. You know the rest. The dream that you have may not even exist in the minds of others right now, but YOU see it. YOU have the ability to nurture it, develop it, and manifest it. Do not allow what others have or have NOT done dictate what you are DOING! Even “less than 1%” is chance enough for victory! Go get it!! #drangelaspeaks #nowwhat #MOVEanyway

// The Two Great Habits.

The new #quarter is here.

But more than that, day one of the third quarter marks the first day of the #last half of the year.

Yep, our year is half gone.

And that had me #thinking about this: Where exactly am I in relation to the #targets I've set for myself.

Honestly, looks like I'm a mixed bag... some things are coming along, and others are far off.

Tracking... it's key.

And so are these two habits:
.
1. #Learning to learn and apply.
2. #Moving anyway...especially when its hard.

The first practice keeps you from becoming stagnant and #useless.

To live in expansion and #growth means you learn what you need to do to create #positive motion and put your head down and fucking do it.

You can tell when you've learned something by noticing a #change in your behavior. Like a child that learns the hot stove burns his hand, you learn to abandon valueless acts for productive #action.

The second one is a nod to #discipline. On the path to the best version of you obstacles, injury, and #challenge will abound.

How will you respond? Positive motion demands you to #moveanyway... day in, day out. You move... it's chop wood, carry water.

You make whatever progress you can understanding that your best will vary from day to day, but your #commitment won't waver. Ever.

When you combine the application of learning with a move anyway #mindset, you create #power.

No one is coming to save you.

What will you do with Q3? Share below.

  • I quite often get asked if I really consider my practice spiritual? or coments that what I teach is really a workout, nothing spiritual.
And I believe it shows this ingrained belief that body and soul are separate entities, our sprit somehow chained and burdened with the body that we eventually transcend for a true spiritual experience. 
To me nothing is further from the truth 🤷‍♀️ It is only by truely inhabiting our bodies and experiencing their fullest potential that we experience our soul and touch the spirit of the universe within us. 
Lofty as it sounds you don’t need yoga for it, however you like to move you can feel this connection, be it crossfit, weightlifting or running, anything that makes you move your body with joy. Movement is prayer and deep spiritual practice if you want it and if you search for it. The extraordinary truely is in the simplest of things. Practice whatever sets your soul on fire🔥

  • “He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has.” - Epictetus.
.
// Black Clouds.

Some days I #engage myself in lengthy battles.

The longer the battle, the more I am assured I am in #resistance of what is or of where I am on my journey.

In these moments, I #struggle to regain my motivation and drive to move and act toward #becoming the man I want to be.

I have lost control of my mentality... allowing my thoughts to control me, or at least prevent me from stepping into my #best self.

Today, my #body felt weak.

Last weekend was a grueling #Spartan race, yesterday was a solid #workout, followed by a late night of editing a newsletter for release the following morning.

When I awoke, I did not go into my #routine. I did not begin my day with physical movement and #gratitude or journaling.

I fell into "I'm never going to make it" mode.... then, my mind took me into #comparison sickness.

It began showing me all the #successes of others, all the progress and movement of those around me, and hid from me my own #accomplishments.

I battled this #feeling most of the day.

I didn't want to write for you today.

I just wanted to be someone else.

But that really isn't sane... or even an option. So, I am making myself purge these thoughts in writing for all to see.

For me to see.

For me to #create a win, when everything in me said "be stagnant" today.

It took great effort to #moveanyway and get this out, but that is the work I chose into.

Even when I don't feel like it.

Imagine the world full of people only doing the right thing when they felt like it, or when it is convenient... I can't imagine that being much of a world at all.

Certainly not one of #growth and development.

I am not what I feel, I am what I do... and today I write and share and chose to create a #win.

    // Black Clouds.

    Some days I #engage myself in lengthy battles.

    The longer the battle, the more I am assured I am in #resistance of what is or of where I am on my journey.

    In these moments, I #struggle to regain my motivation and drive to move and act toward #becoming the man I want to be.

    I have lost control of my mentality... allowing my thoughts to control me, or at least prevent me from stepping into my #best self.

    Today, my #body felt weak.

    Last weekend was a grueling #Spartan race, yesterday was a solid #workout , followed by a late night of editing a newsletter for release the following morning.

    When I awoke, I did not go into my #routine . I did not begin my day with physical movement and #gratitude or journaling.

    I fell into "I'm never going to make it" mode.... then, my mind took me into #comparison sickness.

    It began showing me all the #successes of others, all the progress and movement of those around me, and hid from me my own #accomplishments .

    I battled this #feeling most of the day.

    I didn't want to write for you today.

    I just wanted to be someone else.

    But that really isn't sane... or even an option. So, I am making myself purge these thoughts in writing for all to see.

    For me to see.

    For me to #create a win, when everything in me said "be stagnant" today.

    It took great effort to #moveanyway and get this out, but that is the work I chose into.

// Move Toward It.

After I got off the phone with my #Mom yesterday, wifey and I took off into the desert for a short #hike.

My call went long so rather than get in a trip to the summit of Daisey Mountain, we only had time to do a part of it.

We almost didn't go.

Wifey had laid down beside me and we fell into that #comfortable feeling you get that leads straight into a nap.

But, I said I was going, so I got up and off we went.

Part of the #identity I am building and living into is that of being a man who does what he says. This was an #opportunity to step into that.

I'm glad I did.

We were rewarded with one of the most incredible #sunsets I have witnessed.

And even though I didn't have time to summit the mountain, I was able to #run up the hills... taking me closer to my #fit goals.

As we walked along we saw lots of wildlife: doves, rabbits, and quail were everywhere.

Wifey really enjoys the #animals and we were able to connect around that experience... and #grow closer.

We used this as a time to invest in our #relationship and step closer to our goal of enjoying time together.

Then, of course, with a perfect sunset... we were blessed with a new #experience to share.

It was just a simple hike.

But it became more than that to me. It was a vehicle to move toward the things I want... even if only by a small measure.

I'll take small #positive motion done consistently any day... there's no way to lose in that scenario.

The problems arise when we lack motion, or don't find ways to inject positive motion toward our targets each day.

Obviously, some days are easier than others... but the #master finds a way to #moveanyway.

So must you.

  • “There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that's your own self.” - Aldous Huxley.
.
// I'm Done.

Days come and go. Each one is an #opportunity.

I use my time each day to further my experience, influence and #growth, or I don't.

The days come and go regardless.

They don't care how I #feel. Nor do they pause when I reach a breaking point. They don't consider me or my state of #mind at all.

They simply roll on... ever into the future creating ages and generations of people who will have #contributed to the world or not.

They don't care.

They lack the capacity.

And that is a #gift... knowing your life is passing whether you are participating in it or not is motivation.

If you plan to make an impact, get busy... because #time won't wait for you.

Your feelings? Irrelevant. You have to #moveanyway.

That's the #hardtruth.

And, I can tell you from firsthand #experience that creating daily content and putting in the development work can ultimately lead to some days of saying "fuck it... I'm done". I'm exhausted.
I'm empty.
I have nothing to offer.

When I get to that place I know I failed to #invest in me.

I've somehow gotten so caught up in the act of "becoming" that I lost my ability to #produce.

I need to wash my mind clear.
I need new stimuli, colors, and creative ideas.

I need to hit the comic shop.

Just walking through the door I'm seeing #fresh imagery, colors, and ideas all telling me to remember this:
.
If the makers of Action and Detective Comics could create over 1000 issues containing hundreds of original drawn and inked panels over the course of 80 years, then I probably have a few more #creative ideas to release.

I can let go ideas of "being done" and refocus on what's really #possible.

I just needed a break and new perspective... I needed to invest in my #capacity to produce.

Sometimes I forget that part.

  • I don’t always get studio time for myself, and that’s ok. Some days, we just have to move when we can right? Between appointments, tasks, and often...furniture!😂 The point is though, that we choose to move. If we added in some little exercises here and there...in a waiting room, on the kitchen floor while waiting for that timer to go off, or beside our desk....what results would we get? Movement loosens our “tight” cultural habit, releases stress points, and gets circulation flowing through our lungs and body. Who doesn’t need those kind of breaks throughout the day?! Life is unpredictable, so what if we made our movement moments, flexible? What if we stopped stressing the days we didn’t get our workout in, but instead moved in moments we could? Waking up our minds, & bringing a cleansing strength back into spaces we can. Try it with me for a week, and let’s see how different our bodies and mind feel! 👌🏼 #MoveAnyway #MakeSpaceForBreathing #ExperienceYourOwnStrong #PilatesMovesMe #PilatesIsForEveryBody #PilatesHereAndThere #CoreTribePilatesStudio #EstesParkColorado

// Pick A Side.

Right now... in this very moment, you exist between your past and your #future.

Between what is known and what is unknown within your own personal #timeline.

At present, we exist as the #marriage between what has happened and what could happen.

We are the point at which order and chaos come #together.

The question is, what do we do with our "now". Most will let now be determined by the past. They will wake and immediately their #minds will start running the programs of past experience.

They will think the same thoughts... and as such, #produce the same outcomes in #health and #wealth as in days past.

They will lean on the past, the known, the order established in #life long ago as a blueprint for today.

And nothing will #change.

Others will wake and realize the #opportunity to mix a little chaos into the known and do so.

They will #read new ideas, take a risk on a #relationship or #business, and do something uncomfortable.

And, no matter the outcome, positive or negative they will seek the #lesson in the experience and use it as a means of #growth and expansion.

They will not allow a #feeling of embarrassment or unworthiness or any other self deprecating story in their heads to rule them.

They will #moveanyway toward what they want.

They will understand it's a process, stay #committed... and focus on movement.

You are always living the line between the two ways of being.

You are the force that unites each side.
