|RESISTANCE IS USELESS = EXCUSES ARE ABUSES|
That is my favourite quote from the film The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. When I watched it my resistance was high in a number of areas in my life – resistance comes from our fears – excuses also represent our resistances & fears.
The definition of resistance is the refusal to accept or comply with something – it’s a feeling that comes on strong – where you start making a gazillion excuses – you can feel your inner walls go up – it’s most likely old & the way to release it is to grow through it. If you don’t you end up weakening the nervous system & abusing it
This ties in with this months theme of building the nervous system so we are strong, willing & able enough to accept the SHOCKS of life – adapting to whatever LIFE may throw at us without reacting in a negative way – the stronger our nervous system is – the easier this practice becomes.
Here’s a kriya that opens up the bladder meridian and strengthens the kidneys which store our fears.
Feel free to reach out with any comments and/or concerns. If you can do this for the full 3 minutes and would like to do it for 40 days straight with some mentoring – i’m here!
I taught a kids yoga class last week as part of Yoga International Day here in Gozo and noticed how little resistance they have to trying to new things – the kids asked for more, soooo I’ll be giving KIDS YOGA classes in Gharb, Gozo from July 8-29th More info here:
If you’re ready for more join me on a retreat and/or teacher training this fall / winter ….

Fancy a week retreating on a small tranquil island in the med? Check out my Inside/Out KriyaAsana Retreat week in Gozo from Oct 5-12th for more of these practices, good meals, lovely people and Gozo’s chilled – ness
A great way to bring in 2020 is to deeply dive & connect to all you are in a way you never thought possible. I will be guiding two YTT’s –
Here’s the info for the one in Gozo in October
The second YTT will be in Ecuador in the lush jungle with few distractions in a special location called Ayampe – our YTT venue is Wild Child Village – it’s an incredibly innovative eco boutique bamboo structure that works WITH nature instead of against it. Immersed in jungle life & few distractions – proper YOU time.
I’m also available online for privates from my home to yours when time suits you best. I can tailor private retreats to suit your individual and/or groups needs.
Speaking of resistance..here’s my one and only full online FREE class as I’m still working on creating the subscription channel folks..hahha
Thanks for subscribing, for taking the time to read through this & THANK YOU FOR BEING
xThe idea is for people to be strong and to let them control their weaknesses. When you want to stop water from flowing in one direction, you put up a dike to stop the flow and then open up a channel for it to flow in another direction. Human energy works in exactly the same way. You stop it from flowing to the negative or destructive side and you will have an equal amount of energy to flow in a positive direction. Just remember: there is X amount of energy in you and you are its master. You can use it the way you want and direct it in the way you want it go. Yogi Bhajan
