Like anything in life, your yoga practice should always be a work in progress. It will ebb and flow, feel amazing one minute and challenging the next. It’s this opportunity for continual growth, and that potential to ignite your inner passion, that makes the practice of yoga so special.

So what do you do when your practice starts to plateau? When you begin to feel frustrated or bored? How do you keep the fire burning?

“Passion is energy. Feel the power from focusing on what excites you.” ~ Oprah Winfrey

Passion or being passionate about something doesn’t necessarily just fall in your lap. It’s something that you seek out, explore or discover, and potentially change over time. Some people go through life never really knowing their true passion. The path to passion is one of self discovery and once you’ve travelled it the effect on your life can be profound.

Purpose is the reason you journey. Passion is what lights the way.

You can either find the passion in what you do or find what your passionate about and do that instead. Either way, explore what lights you up, sets your soul on fire, fills your cup. Ask yourself what will you walk away from and feel energised & alive?

On the mat…

It may be exploring a new pose or variation, perhaps even a different style of class. A workshop or retreat is a great way to delve deeper into your practice, to reignite the fire. Discovering your passion for your practice may require you to challenge yourself, either through advancing your practice, or taking a new approach such as slowing it down.

Off the mat…

Yoga is the perfect practice for cultivating your passion. Becoming more aware of what we’re passionate about may come from exploring a variety of interests, experiencing new things, taking risks, making mistakes, learning and readjusting what we think we could do better or what might bring us joy.

Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire. ~ Jennifer Lee

The meditative and self-explorative aspects of yoga make it an ideal practice to help you move closer to what you’re truly passionate about. By quietening your mind you can connect to your higher self, that part of you that intuitively knows what would bring you most joy or satisfaction in life. Meditation, breath practices & restorative poses allow the body to open and release blocked energy that keeps us unconsciously repeating negative emotional and behavioural patterns.

Invigorating movements like our Sun Salutations and vinyasa sequences spark our internal fire, acting as a rebirth to remind us to seek out and embody our truth, taking us out of a mental slump.

“Love the life you live. Live the life you love.” ~ Bob Marley

Always be in pursuit of what brings you joy in life, what sparks your interest and ignites your passion.
