Who's in charge of your Renewal? You are!

Life is supposed to be fun.
It can be easy to forget;
after all, "fun" is not on your To Do List.
Let's trash that To Do List for a moment.
Instead, do something that feels good, right now. Forget the To Dos and simply make yourself feel better in this moment; breathe and it instantly revitalizes you. That's what it means to be right here, right now.
Now is where your life is. Now is where your power is.
Sometimes, dear yogis, you come to yoga class buried under dark, heavy old complaints; you scold yourselves for falling out of a pose, or falling out out of the yoga habit, for "falling off the wagon" and not taking time for yourself, for not taking better care of yourself. Then you agonize over how hard it will be to get back on track, and lament how much ground you have lost.
You are right here, right now. You have lost nothing. Now is where your life takes place.
Look for the treasure inside you, waiting to be renewed.
Now is the time. And you do have time: it's called Your Life.
Even if your To Do list is overflowing with tasks and other people's needs, renewing yourself is the best thing you can do... for them.
But don't do it for them. Do it for you.
In a letter to the poet Emily Dickinson, her friend wrote, "When you are what men call dead, you will be sorry you were so stingy." Not stingy with others, but with yourself; stingy with all the things that gave you pleasure, the things that made life fun, the things you came here to experience.
Be generous. Don't be afraid to give yourself everything you want in life.
You deserve it; and appreciating yourself is more powerful than you can imagine.
Live from the heart, go with the flow...
On a Riverflow Renewal, hot yoga is not just a practice; it is a way to break free of whatever is holding you back from the life you really want, from seeing it as within your reach if you'll just allow yourself to grab for the fun of it.
In my 40+ years teaching yoga thousands to of students of all ages as well as training and mentoring yoga students and teachers, I found yoga be the perfect place to begin the path to everything you want.
All you need to do is take the next step, and know this for certain:
You are the right person
You are in the right place
You are on the right path
You are being called to all that you want
at just the right time
Follow the call...
to yoga, friendship, adventure, surprise and spirit.
Long after your Riverflow Renewal ends, that feeling remains...so you can carry it forth into a life you'll love.
This is your Renewal.
