Dan prepares to enter Half-Moon(Ardha-Chandrasana). Fingers interlocked, arms begin to rise overhead, eyes drawing upward toward the ceiling. All the while keeping the chin tucked, with a slow inhale through the body’s core, keeping a straight spine.

Facing a time of uncertainty in January 2016, I was in search of finding a natural connection with a community out there that ran deeper than physicality and materialism. Having grown up with a mild case of cerebral palsy, I’ve been physically challenged since I was just a small child. This physical impairment brought forth my need to develop a mentally sound approach to my outlook on life, from a very early age in my childhood. Later on as an adult, despite having come a long way forward from where I was physically and mentally as a child, I still…


Dan focuses on his own expectations to equate the same level of self-satisfaction in his workout as other members of the class.

Dan looks to implement a pattern of diversion, a mental path of concentrated stillness designed to keep intrusive thoughts from interfering with his focus on completing the current task at hand.

We often do things in repetition, over and over again until they become 2nd nature. We think because we’ve done something before, that as we plan to do it again, we will enact an experience we’ve already had. You may have done that activity before in a physical sense, but each time we encounter a different battle mentally, and that in sequence affects how we perform our actions physically.
