“Doubt Your Doubts”

This week marked the beginning of a very important journey for any yogi. Outfitted in the Mucha “Trappistine Liquor” legging, I attended the first class in my 200-hour Power Yoga Teacher Training. I remember considering the opportunity when I first heard about it at my yoga studio. Naturally, my first reaction was to reason with myself regarding the time commitment and rule it out. In the days that followed my initial consideration of teacher training, I couldn’t help but let the idea back into my head. In a surprise move, on an ordinary Sunday not too long ago, I sent the email confirming my enrollment. The voices in my head echoed, “the time is now” and “if you don’t do it now, you’ll never do it”, clashing with the opposing view, “you don’t have time” and “you’ll never finish”. Sometimes you have to force yourself to overcome, or overpower, the negative, no matter how crazy or impossible the task at hand seems.

As I walked into the studio last Wednesday, eyes immediately went to my legs. My leggings certainly drew attention and I received the kind of looks and comments Altar Ego leggings often solicit. Quality, distinctiveness, noticeability, and functionality – these are the pillars of Altar Ego. I invite all fellow yogis to practice in our leggings and experience the same expressive comfort that I experience each time I wear Altar Ego.

In our first communication with the Yoga Training Lead, we were told to begin doubting our doubts - and believe me there were lots. The first principle of yoga is the physical yoga postures, also known as “Asama” in Sanskrit – firmness of body, steadiness of mind, and benevolence of spirit. Whatever you practice, wherever you practice, let Altar Ego inspire you and help you to cultivate strength, stillness, and endurance – or perhaps a much needed distraction during class…we think you look good in the mirror too.

Yoga not only enriches the body, so that you look great in our leggings, it cultivates intelligence in the mind and kindness in the spirit. We want to be part of all of that. The most important factor in yoga, and in life, is breath. Next time you are feeling stressed, tired, or pressed, take a deep breath in and deep breath out. “Inhale, lift your chest, roll your shoulders back, exhale”. When voices tell you that something can’t be done, something is too difficult, or the burn gets unbearable, just take one more breath and sink deeper – you will be better for it.

This week’s intention: commit, even to the “impossible”. Let your breath carry you through your most difficult moments and do not automatically trust negative internal feedback.
