The secret to making change stick when things get tough? Harnessing your discomfort and transforming it into personal power through your yoga practice. In the yogic tradition, a key to following through with your intentions is tapas, or self-discipline. Derived from the Sanskrit root tap, which means “to heat,” tapas is about burning off your bad habits through restraint and even purification. Sometimes, tapas can literally be felt as heat in the body—like the burn of a deep Utkatasana (Chair Pose) that transforms weakness into strength. On a psychological level, tapas can be interpreted more metaphorically: It’s the friction or resistance that arises when we go against the overwhelming momentum of our ingrained habits. Yogis, self-discipline allows for growth and transformation! . . . #tapas #yogaeverydamnday #yogapose #yogi #yogapractice #yogalove #asana #yogachallenge #practiceandalliscoming #yogalife #yogaaddict #yogaeverywhere #yogagram #yogini #yogajourney #yogainspiration #yogadaily #igyoga #yogisofinstagram #yogaeveryday #practicedaily #instayoga #feeltheyogahigh #meistershots #conquer_la #discoverla #losangelesgrammers #lagrammers
