The truth is we live in a world of chaos, we’re all in constant flux. This isn’t a bad thing, but it requires us to consciously create balance in our lives. For all of the outward forces pulling on us (Yang energy) we need to draw in (cultivating our Yin energy). This is how we replenish our Power sources. Self-care is most effective as a practice, because it's the small things, done consistently, that become the big, powerful, transformative things.
In honor of the 1-year anniversary of my friend Karina's passing, and in celebration of her life, I'm going to tell you a story about Magic. Now, this isn't just some fantasy fairy-tale, this is real-life capital “m” - Magic. The Magic that Karina believed in and that she created with her life.
I decided to call my blog Wonder Yogi, firstly, because the word Wonder stirs up something in me, as I feel I’ve always lived my life in a state of wonder and seeking more of it. Secondly, I’ve dabbled in yoga on and off since I was 16 years old (its now 10 years later), but I'm now very soon to be taking on a new role as a Yoga Educator. And lastly, Wonder Yogi sounds like Wonder Woman, and (since I consider myself pretty bad-ass) well, I just like the ring of that.
