The Warrior pose: A symbol of strength in our yoga practice. When we look at photos of yogis in Warrior poses, they appear as though they are unshakeable.
They give the impression that they cannot be moved—that nothing could knock them down or cause them to falter. Our society supports this notion. It dictates that strength is equivalent to capability, demonstrated expertise, or perceived emotional regulation in the face of adversity.
We associate strength with a person who never seems rattled, always pulls it together, and doesn’t need to ask for help. This is how we picture yogis in Warrior poses—flawless, infallible human beings who are unaffected by the struggle of their body wanting to surrender. I want to challenge this.
BEFORE YOU CAN KNOW WHERE YOU ARE HEADED, YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND WHERE YOU ARE + WHO YOU ARE. ONCE YOU HAVE SELF-AWARENESS AND CLARITY IN KNOWING YOUR PASSIONS AND PURPOSE, YOU CAN BEGIN TO CREATE A LIFE AND CAREER IN COMPLETE ALIGNMENT WITH YOUR AUTHENTIC SELF: SETTING GOALS THAT RESONATE WITH YOUR SOUL, BUILDING IN DAILY STEPS THAT BRING YOU CLOSER TO THOSE GOALS, AND HANGING IN THERE THROUGH THE UPS AND DOWNS.
