Expression: The Second Act

Second Act: your best expression yet!

We live in a charming little beach town in Costa Rica. The only catch is you must drive over a primitive, bumpy road covered with pot holes that look like miniature Grand Canyons. Your reward, at the end of this rough and rugged road there is an incredible little town, a beautiful beach, and a fantastic community.

This amazing place is populated by both locals (Costa Ricans) and ex-pats like ourselves. Together we are navigating what it takes to create a conscious, equitable, and welcoming community.

There are seasons when the road gets seriously bumpy for all of us! You may even want to give up, but if you stay committed to your higher path, you will find a new expression of life on the other side.

After all, the life circumstances we attract ask us to redefine who we are. Like each savasana we practice, we die a little ego death and potentially emerge as a new version of ourselves.

The savasana practice is one of the central reasons Patrick and I practice yoga, to ground the body in movement and breath so that we might surrender what is no longer serving us or our lives.

Like us, you have probably had to let parts of your story—of your very consciousness—die away during this pandemic season. Our “pandemic death” represented a monumental shift in our personal and professional identities. The primary catalyst was the closing of our business: a group of donation-based yoga studios we built and grew over the past 20 years.

The passing of Kindness Yoga was a loss for us as well as for the thousands of practitioners and teachers who found solace within those studio walls.

When these feelings of loss washed over us, we leaned into the very practices that built our community. We surrendered. We trusted in something greater. We persisted through our pain and our grief with more grace, humility, and perspective.

The caterpillar goes through metamorphosis and emerges as a magnificent butterfly. We observed from the natural world that death is one stage of emergence.

We know that personal and communal evolution is fundamental to a successful life. Our experience of “little deaths” has guided the growth of our family.

For two decades, our focus was on moving the masses. Our current focus is proividing an experience that is more personal, more intimate, and we believe, more potent than ever.

Savasana Practice

Roll your mat out onto the floor,
Set a timer for 10 minutes.

Lay down on your back with your feet as wide as your mat.
Placing a pillow under your knees for support as desired.

Tuck your shoulder blades under and
open your palms toward the ceiling.

Imagine what you would you like to let go of…

Close your eyes and breath full and slow.
Let what you are holding soften and release on each exhale.

Focus on the breath and drift into a softer state of mind.
If you dose off, allow it to happen.

When the timer goes off take a big breath, roll on to your side, and pause.

Slowly sit up as a new version of yourself.

Create a blessing for the rest of your day.

Stand and begin again.
