It’s easy to wax poetic on change when you’re coming from a stable place—change is good! You’ll always land on your feet! Don’t worry, you’ll look back at this and it will all make sense! On the flip side, if you’re desperately clutching onto the reins of the unpredictable bull of change, it’s a different story. You cling for dear life hoping the next buck won’t send you sailing into oblivion. So we seek out a happy medium: the ability to live confidently in a land without answers, knowing if we stick to our core values and regularly check in with our mind and heart, that we will make it to the next chapter on both feet, and yes—better, slightly battered, and stronger for it.
These postures are my favorites to practice when I’m weaving through a maze of confusion. It’s the perfect balance of stability in your legs and vulnerability in your front body and heart. You have to trust your gut and lean into a place where there’s nowhere to hide. These pockets of physical practice prepare us for trusting that inner voice that invites us to transform on and off the mat. Finally, Ash Cebulka (my life coach) and I share tips for navigating big change with courage and grace.
