What if you could improve almost every area of your life with one practice? Sounds too good to be true? It isn’t really, but with all the hype out there it helps to hear it straight.

Asia here. Let me tell you a little about me …

Seventeen years ago I ended up (rather randomly) in a yoga class. I’d love to say “and now I’m full of light and never have problems!” Not quite, but yoga did start to change me. First, it FELT amazing. At the time, I squatted 170lbs (I was ~135lbs soaking wet holding a brick) and deadlifted over 200lbs, yet I couldn’t do some of the most basic yoga movements. Fascinated by this strange, powerful experience, yoga became my new favourite place to explore my capabilities and limits.

Seventeen years later I have yet to step on my mat and not find some form of instant engagement, learning, ease, strength, insight, or freedom to come from my yoga practice. Beyond the rather remarkable, powerful changes in my body, it was the mental training that set me on the path to what I’ve fallen most in love with about yoga: a practical way of living based on less suffering and more freedom.

Turns out you can change your life by just breathing, moving, and meditating a bit every day. It isn’t always easy but it is remarkably simple. You can go to Deepak Chopra, Tony Robbins, Mahatma Gandhi, Joseph Campbell, Thich Nhat Hanh, the Dalai Lama, the Pope or the Maharishi and you’ll hear the same principles that outline this profound, ancient practice of personal freedom.

What are those principles, and why would you care? Well, are you –

  • physically imbalanced in a way that’s not making you feel free and strong in your own body? Yeah, we can definitely change that.
  • always pursuing happiness without a whole lot of actually being happy? You’ll be happy as soon as … [fill in the blank with whatever you’re chasing these days], right? No, not actually – but you can be happy now – and without the ellipses.
  • restricted by things you find painful? Hurtful relationships you don’t want to repeat, things you tried that went badly, places or experiences you fear – all of these ways you’re protecting yourself that are making your world harder, smaller, and less alive? There’s a good reason you’re doing that, but it’s not a good reason to keep doing it – and you don’t need to keep doing it.
  • longing to actually like yourself, forgive yourself, love yourself, trust yourself, enjoy being you and drop all the baggage? We can do that, too – for real, and for good.

In order to get where you want to go, start moving in the right direction. Start anywhere. Start here, with me. It’s my favourite thing in the world to see people change their lives with yoga.
