Tapas | Staying With Suffering Makes Us More Resilient

Tapas | Staying With Suffering Makes Us More Resilient

Happy Monday, and welcome back to the eighth week of the yamas and niyamas series. This week, we're featuring Tapas, and no, it's not the amazingly delicious hors d’oeuvres you get at a Spanish restaurant. No, Tapas in its literal translation from Sanskrit means heat; however, it can also be thought of as self-discipline, change, or transformation. 

In order to create change and transformation within ourselves and our lives, we need to build heat through self-discipline in order to burn away our old selves and create space for an improved, better version.

Why I Show My Stomach in Yoga Class

Why I Show My Stomach in Yoga Class

Hello again, Lovelies,

As I'm sure many of you have noticed, it's becoming more and more popular to wear crop tops or just a sports bra (for guys, maybe no shirt at all) to yoga classes. We see this in our regular morning class or at the gym, on social media, and even with people out and about in their athleisure attire. I can understand the mixed reactions to this and why one would choose either way - to bear or to cover up. But, I want to tell you why I choose to show my stomach in yoga classes and at the gym.
