Increase your confidence by exploring your personal power. Your personal power is your ability to change the direction of your life, just as much as it’s your ability to make the conscious choice to stay the course. Your developed and natural strength, confidence and competence are all rooted in your personal power, fueled by it and fuel it in return. Each week we will explore ways to increase your confidence and step into your personal power. Central to personal power is striving for ultimate meaning and satisfaction within yourself and your life. Unlike negative types of power, the goal of personal power is to master oneself and one’s own world. It is rooted in a specific state of mind that when adopted results in an attitude of empowerment that allows you to become a proactive actor in one’s own life, versus a victim of life.

Throughout our childhood, we develop a framework by which we experience the world around us and receive feedback about our behaviors from external individuals and systems. By early adulthood, we’ve developed a story—a narrative script we tell ourselves and others about what happened in our past, how the world works, and who we are. Our brain uses this story like a blueprint to make sense of the world—to predict, evaluate, react to, and control our lives. Often the blueprint is outdated and needs to be changed. This course will give you the tools to re-write your outdated scripts, look at life differently, and to overcome limiting beliefs in a safe environment.
Yoga philosophy guides us to live a more productive, aligned, purposeful, and intentional life. Learn how the eight limbs of the 2,000+ year old ashtanga yoga point your focus to your true self and consciousness. Understanding and practicing the intertwined eight limbs opens someone to a realization of one’s true self and consciousness, destroying all obstacles standing in their way as well as the impurities of the mind and body. It also results in directing focus towards our health, and aids in the acknowledgement and development of our spiritual inclinations. Exploration of main Yogic texts, including Yoga Sutras and The Bhagavad Gita will be included in this course.
Besides helping the environment by maintaining a plant-based diet, you also gain many health benefits when you introduce a more plant-based diet into your life.
