I’m going to ask you some very serious questions, so please take a moment to really think about the answers. Ready? Okay, here we go:
I’m going to make a wild guess and say that your answer to all three of these questions is an indisputable “NO!”
How do I know this? Because you wouldn’t be human if you answered anything other than that!
There is no being “best” at yoga.
Stress and anxiety are an oxymoron to joy (although they can overlap at times).
And if you’ve achieved perfection and control over your life, then please tell me your secret.
Chances are: you’re like the 99% of us human beings who are just doing the best we can in our given lives with what we’ve got.
My name is Marissa Tolero and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Certified Yoga Instructor. I bring mental health onto the yoga mat with private yoga+therapy sessions and my new video series, Yoga for Mental Health.
I can’t promise that after working with me or watching my videos, you will be a master of yoga, all of your stress and anxiety will dissolve, and your life will suddenly be flawless.
What I can promise is:
+you will gain clarity on your goals
+you will have a deeper understanding of the challenges preventing you from achieving those goals
+you will learn real, hard skills for working through those challenges
+I will be by your side, as long as you wish for me to be
It may seem like only a few bullet points, but these four promises are a foundation for you to move through your challenges and achieve your goals. And that's pretty damn powerful.
You may not get to be the “best” at yoga, but you can begin to practice and determine what you want out of it.
You may never enjoy stress or anxiety, but you will learn what’s behind it and begin to break that down.
You may never be perfect, but you will take steps towards what a happy and healthy life means to you.
Namaste and Love,
