Do you feel you have a unique gift? #36

You are a gift and You are unique…

We all have a special gift that gives us our purpose in life. We may not recognize it at an early age and often forget about it, and later in life, realize what our place is in our existence.

Law of Attraction #35

What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you wake up? Is it, “today is going to be a great day!” or “not again…”?

What we think primes our mind and makes us encounter things, events, experiences in line with that thinking. We’re like magnets that draw us to what we radiate.

Have you heard of the Law of Attraction?…

Forgiveness is For Me #34

Forgiving someone who has done you wrong is so hard to do!

We carry that heaviness inside us that affects the way we live our lives. We become grouchy & sensitive for every little thing and sometimes, it leads to destroying relationships.

I know it’s hard, but I found a way to make it easy…

The Open Secret…We Are Not Alone in Our Struggles #31

So picture this: I get home with our first newborn baby, Sebastian. All of a sudden life hits me like a brick. The reality of being a new parent came on full force, and all the exhausting side affects that come with it. I felt like I couldn’t keep up, or maybe I was an inadequate father.

Here’s the truth, I wasn’t. At the time though, I felt this struggle was completely unique to me.

Have you ever felt like that? Was there a time when you thought what you were going through was more intense, and unimaginable. That no one else could relate.

We’re here today to help you see the bigger picture, and more importantly to remind you, that no matter what it is, you are not alone.

Also, you get to see us be goofballs, in which case, you are not alone if you think you are the only goofball in the world 😉

Why Meditate?

Chris and John share their thoughts on why it is so important to meditate. It is the most important thing you can do in your daily life because the practice trains you to create space between a trigger and your reaction. When life does not go as planned (which, let’s face it, is all the time), meditation enables you to quiet the constant chatter in your mind and instead respond with your full awareness. Meditation trains you to live in the moment, and creates enough space for you to choose your reaction to a trigger and reframe your response.

The Yax brothers, John and Chris, with Yax Yoga Concepts have developed a variety of yoga tutorial videos aimed at breaking down the postures taught in Vinyasa and Niyata sequences.
