Determination to Begin Again

I taught class today with this theme based upon one of my all time favorite mantras: Begin Again.

Every day we wake up and our hair is a mess, our bed is rumpled and what we do next matters. In the words of Robert Frost, “First thing I do in the morning is make up my bed. Then I make up my mind.”

Our beds, like our minds get rumpled and need tidying up over and over again. This requires perseverance. A tidy mind feels like mental peace.

We do this by using our breath or breathwork with the asana to tidy the mind. All that is required is that we show up every day determined to pay attention to our breath to organize our mental energies into a place of peace. Sometimes when we need to, using another favorite mantra from the Little Red Engine that Could ‘I think I can, I think I can.”

Hi love, I’m Silvia!

I’m a specialist in starting over. 

Trauma revealed truths that took me to some faraway places for healing and wisdom. In Bali, South America, New Zealand, Australia, Laos, Hawaii and Malaysia, I soaked it up, took bold actions, and expanded what was possible for me.

Through all of this I learned something profound; the power of resiliency can be taught and even making a 5% change can change the future dramatically.

Now I teach women like you to access the power within you to change your life, celebrate your genius and start over to create any life you dare to dream.
