12 Week Personal Transformation: A Yoga Study

10:00 AM 0 Comments A+ a-

At the tail end of last year, I began a themed twelve week journey through the "12 Laws of Personal Transformation" - taken from 40 Days to Personal Revolution by Baron Baptiste. Each class began with a quote that I'd found that fit the theme of the week and the challenge for me was to speak to the theme throughout the class.

My personal challenge this year has been to speak more from the heart as I lead asana. Having a predetermined theme at the outset of the class gives me a structure to work around, especially if the theme/concept is short and simple. The short theme/concept also helps when naming the audio recordings from class as I upload them online.

Sometimes I have recording failures (forget to start the recording, forgetting to shut down the recorder properly), but I managed to get a majority of these 12 laws recorded and shared online. You can find them in the usual places online:


Here is a list of the recordings I have from this 12 week journey:


1. Seek the truth. 
2. Be willing to come apart.
3. Step out of your comfort zone. 
4. Commit to growth.
5. Shift your vision. 
6. Drop what you know. 
7. Relax with what is.
8. Remove the rocks. 
9. Don’t rush the process. 
10. Be true to yourself. 
11. Be still and know. 
12. Understand that the whole is the goal.
