Claim Your Worth: 80/20 Rule
When we spend the majority of our time doing what’s expected of us versus what actually reaps the type of rewards we want, we end up feeling depleted, - physically, energetically, financially and otherwise.
Pareto Principle states that 20% of our results come from 80% of our actions
80% of our results come from 20% of our actions.
If you apply this to yoga, 80% of outputs come from 20% of inputs and by identifying the correct inputs, the correct practices, you can achieve the greatest results with the smallest amount of effort.
Finding a Yoga Therapist who can design a potent, unique practice that highlights what you should be focusing on will help you maximize your efforts. Visit me or any practitioner at the Yoga Therapy Clinic at Yoga Yoga Austin.
As a teacher, the same can be applied towards how you focus your time in growing your classes or wellness practice.
We can get caught up in what we think we should do when taking the leap in building our classes or promoting our offerings. We see someone else doing it so we think we have to do it the exact same way.
When you learn what are the 20% of your business practices that lead 80% of your results, you can prioritize those activities to expand your results without putting in more effort or time.
Here is an easy exercise you can do to help you narrow down the 20% of the activities that are leading to the highlights of your teaching career.
If you find this exercise helpful, be sure to forward this to a friend.
Now over to you, after doing the exercise, what are your 20% activities that you’ll be focusing on?
Attending events, sharing content, leading workshop, etc???

Yoga for Headache Prevention
I cant tell you how many times I've had a client come in with upper back and neck tension who afterwards express they didnt even realize they had a headache until the tension was finally gone.
Half to three quarters of the world's adult population (18-65 years old) have had a headache in the last year. Not only are headaches painful, they can be disabling.
With computers, phones and driving, we need to take preventative steps in combating our lifestyles.
Lifestyle Triggers for primary headaches can be:
-highly caffeinated beverages
-certain foods, such as aged cheese, chocolate, and processed meats that contain nitrates
-changes in sleep or lack of sleep
I don't expect people to stop living their life, so I made a video of some simple breath & movement techniques to help prevent the buildup of tension your upper back and neck.

Practice is the Path
Just as it’s back to school so is it time to re-root into healthful practices.
The summer’s fluctuating schedule and almost endless heat can take even the most disciplined of us for a loop.
It’s not about being perfect, it’s about being in practice. ←Tweet this!
Perhaps, you’re just returning to the mat, or to your regular routine, or that new year’s resolution to be more mindful is due in a few months, or maybe your just want to be a part of a community of yogis dedicated to living their yoga off the mat & in their lives.
Regardless your reason, Root Camp is back.
Starting September 25th, we will embark on a 7-day, self-paced online course focusing on mindful eating, conscious cooking, home yoga practices & embodying the yogic lifestyle.
For more information, or to register, go to the events page.
Don't want to wait to start practicing? I get it. Me too. Here is a copy of a Printable Food Journal.
Start tracking how your meals make you feel, what/when/why you're eating, and don't worry so much on amounts or calories. The first step is to notice and being mindful, then you can start to make different decisions.
At the end of the month, we will start exploring recipes, meditations, and more.
Now over to you. DId you find this helpful, share it with a friend.
Did you start using the Food Journal? What did you notice?
