I can read about Yoga all day long, and I can commit to three classes a week. Sometimes I’ve contemplated eliminating working out altogether and just sticking to yoga because I’m aware of the incredible impact it can have on not just the body but mind too. I seem to know this but have to yet to experience it.
The issue I’ve been struggling with is that every time I read about yoga or even practice, I feel unfulfilled. There’s a looming gap. Something I’m still not getting. Am I totally blocked or am I going about it the wrong way?
I hardly feel enlightened, never saw an improvement on my physique and how on earth can Savasana help if I still have trouble meditating? I mean, how do I get this yoga thing right?
People talk about how it has “changed their life”, and how it can change mine too, but how?
That it can help me find my “center” except I haven’t.
I know yoga and even meditation takes a certain amount of dedication for you to truly experience life-changing benefits. However, I am always left with questions like…What can yoga truly do for you?
Along with health-focused nirvana such as India and Thailand, Bali is a Yoga mecca. Since living here for the past few months, I’ve been surrounded with aspiring yogis, an abundance of natural and organic lifestyle options that would get any uninspired junk foodie on a leaner and healthier path in life and a simple paradise that allows me the freedom to get into a yoga routine.
My issue has really been in the how? How will yoga help me? And how can I do it without spending a fortune?
I don’t want a quick fix to get into alignment and I want to be able to connect with myself during meditation. But I need depth, I need answers and I believe yoga and meditation will get me back to a place where I will feel empowered, wise and at peace.
Luckily, I came across Yoga Burn. At first, I made the mistake to assume it was just another common yoga DVD to use at home rather than in class.
I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that it was exactly what I was looking for and first of it’s kind.
See what I have been in search of and I’m sure most of you aspiring yogis out there can agree …I wanted to do yoga without the frills and complications such as:
- travel to a generic class
- pay an insane amount for monthly passes or even drop-ins
- injure myself only to have to continue…or give up entirely
- follow a teacher you don’t connect with
- the struggle to find a spot in a crowded room
- gain zero benefits
- not truly understand how yoga is helping me but to maybe wait for the next class only to discover nothing has changed
- see little physical improvement (this is huge for me)
This got me super excited and when I looked into it further I came to see that Yoga Burn goes beyond physical practice.
Yoga Burn is a system created by certified yoga instructor and physical fitness expert trainer Zoe Bray Cotton. Also known as Her Yoga Secrets is a 12-week unique and progressive program designed around an approach she developed called Dynamic Sequencing. When I came across this I thought this just might actually be my holy grail.
For more info about the Dynamic Sequencing, take a look at this page.
She explains that there are 3 mistakes most “women” make when getting into yoga.
relying solely on generic classes (check)
people trying poses their body isn’t ready for (check)
yoga classes are never tailored for the individual (check!)
thinking that all or any class will distress or relax you
it’s not yoga, it’s the idea of rushing to a class, fighting for that spot and worrying if your even doing the moves properly (check)
– a lack of progression, not seeing results or gaining any momentum in terms of results (check)
Here is the best part. There is an answer to this.
Zoe Bray Cotton has created an approach called Dynamic Sequencing. This consists of performing the right pose, with the right amount of time, within the right sequence that will allow you to perfectly challenge your body. The focus is essentially an “enjoyable, progressive, results-driven yoga experience.”
To give you a better understanding, here are some of the benefits and why I am super excited about this product and why I felt it was necessary to share.
It has 3 phases.
Provides you the foundation to get started on the right track. Will get you onto leaner more toned muscles using laser-focused sequences safely and effectively while building that mind-body connection.
This second phase allows us to smoothly transition from the first phase to the next that link poses together which target the upper body, core, and lower body. Perfect!
Here is where everything we have learned is combined. More repetition designed to get results faster and “reenergize and reinvigorate your mental focus while fully maximizing weight loss.”
If that doesn’t sound amazing enough, she even adds on 3 bonuses to really compliment the entire program. Included are audio classes, a tranquility flow to start the session that will aid in stress relief providing a strong foundation for any mediation beginner and a Yoga Burn monthly series that will get you on the path of learning all types of yoga such as Restorative, Hatha, Kundalini, Ashtanga, Vinyasa and Iyengar. This last one is amazing as it prepares you to masterfully execute each style of yoga.
