Happy Halloween All!

Saturday night was our friends big Halloween bash and we took a party bus from there house over to a pub. The bus was honestly more fun then the pub! There is something about dancing while driving on a highway that just exhilarates me! ๐Ÿ˜‰

After running out of time and needing to find a costumes ย we decided to take find anything around the house toย see what we could come up with. I ended up being a Hippie ( go figure) ย and Perry a rock-star.. Simple and easy, and we didn’t spend a dime! so it was a win win for us.

Today I have a Yoga Flow class and I wanted to incorporate the Halloween festivities into the lesson plan. I truly believe you should step on your mat and just have fun. So this is me encouraging playing and fun while using a holiday as an excuse!

I call this sequence :

There is no illusion greater than fear

We all have them. But itโ€™s safe to say that the bulk of our fears exist as delusions from our minds and our egos.

This Halloween Focus on what you fear. Is there a reason to be scared? Or are there merely an illusion created by your mind?
