I had the amazing opportunity to be participating in the #sneakystrenghtyoga challenge. I have been getting myself more and more into movement science and how to bring a new paradigm of movement into yoga practice. In my search for people to be inspired, validated and supported by I have found empowered women that have opened my perspective of movement so wide that I can´t help but to have a huge smile and butterflies in my tummy right now.
After taking my Teacher Intensive with Kathryn Bruni-Young nothing was the same and I mean it, my teaching, my practice, how I started to think about yoga and movement and it made me feel so GREAT and more confident, and of course I wanted more of this, and then Yoga Detour Training with Cecily Milne arrived, I can´t be more grateful for all the material and Cecily's amazing knowledge and how she transmits it, is a powerful motivation to keep evolving, researching, inquiring and being open to change.
The #sneakystrenghtyoga is not a challenge, is a movement of like mind teachers in the movement and yoga community like @jenni_rawlings, @kathrynbruniyoung, @yogadetour, @lizette_pompa, @trinaaltman, @jenn_pilot, @laurelbeversdorf @samanthaliftsyouup @francescacervero, and @arianayoga, that are raising awareness and positive change in the yoga world. It is not the usual, -pose-image-competitive- challenges that you find on IG, this one really created a powerful community, motivated creativity, innovation, and critical thinking, and that is why I joined it. I have joined two IG in my virtual life, a MovNat Challenge and the #sneakystrenghtyoga, and by far this last one is my Fav.
Some highlights of the #sneakystrenghyoga project (i like how project sounds and I think fits it better, no means of changing the name of course ) are:
1.-Every host was so creative and motivating to watch, I love how they put something out there and the amazing community of movers and yoga practitioners responded with such an innovation that was empowering to see.
2.-The presence of the hosts, I could feel they were there, seeing me, really responding and being engaged with the community.
3.- The new inspiring people I am following now and having conversations with.
I did not win Haha, but that really was not my purpose of joining, it was more for the engagement in a like mind community and to meet new people I can relate with. And the winners did an amazing job, one of them even came with a performance with a group of friends, super fun!!.
So, the effects of this #sneakystrengthchallenge in me, have taken me to write this blog, but also I will be posting each week an interview with some of the amazing hosts of this project, where you will get to know a bit about them and their thoughts about a need of a change in the yoga world.
