For many, what happens in your everyday life lands in your physical being, even if you move on or “forget.” Unless you actively let those things go, your body remembers.And, it holds on — and will keep holding — unless you give it permission to let go.

Ten years ago, I brought the physical practice of yoga into my life because I was in search of a greater mind-body connection. Like others who dive into a physical activity — running, gardening, hiking, swimming, etc. — I could no longer ignore the things that were showing up and asking to be let go. Now, as a yoga teacher, when I release the invisible but heavy things that my mind clings to (painful memories, emotions that hang on like anvils, unfinished to-do lists, and so much more) I make room for a more powerful version of me to emerge.

Why do we hold on so tightly to so many things?

Where does our invisible baggage land in our bodies, and how does it affect our health and our ability to move forward? How can we change the relationship with our body so that it becomes our new BFF and confidant?

These are the questions that keep me up at night as a yoga teacher and a student. Along with exploring these questions with you during my Sip Session, I’ll also share some inquiries and techniques found in yoga that anyone can use throughout the day, such as the practice of non-attachment and the use of breathing to calm the mind and activate new possibilities.

Join me for this very experiential and freeing Sip!
