December Mindset: The month that represents a closing and a new start. The month that wants you finish strong and let go of what is no longer needed. When December is over, leave the negative thoughts and the bad energy behind. You have a fresh start ahead of you, so gear up to give it your best and use your energy wisely!

NOTES: Class today was taught by Jamie. I have thoroughly enjoyed every one of her classes so far. I mean, I’m fairly certain there will not be a class I won’t enjoy!
Similarly to previous classes, I enjoy how much she speaks. She is like therapist, doctor and yogi combo platter. Clearly, she doesn’t charge enough for her classes! haha I just feel the connection between what you accomplish on the mat and how that correlates to outside the hot room. It’s all connected and it all translates. It is easier to remember things said in class when you start to connect dots and it makes the classes more meaningful, in my opinion.
Every class I seem to take a little bit more with me. Its great. Really great.

We spoke a bit before and after class. She had suggested moving my hands closer while trying to work on nailing a handstand. I tried again after class, and what a crazy difference it made. Not quite there yet, but I will get it!
I didn’t attend any classes at all this weekend. Saturday was hard strength workout and Sunday was a full on rest day which was needed. I practiced a lot on Saturday at home and was extremely sore Sunday. Rest was needed and I respected that. I have had a pretty clear and open head arriving for Monday classes, today was no different. It is easier
I didn’t realize that she was one of our teachers for teacher training, but she is which is awesome since I enjoy her classes so much! I am excited for that to start!
Thanks again Jamie for a great class today, Infinite Love & Gratitude!

The Corner of 8th & Insanity: If you want her to support your quest for freedom, you must honor and support her in her love of loving. There is a large difference between the masculine and feminine sexual essence, learn the differences between the two and you will be better off. Not only learn, but embrace it.
Alignment. Think about your alignment with yourself and your highest purpose. It is difficult to feel at ease when your life mission or purpose is off kilter. That is just the way of the masculine sexual essence. At times, I know you have thought it was stress or some other menial distraction that doesn’t allow you to remain present. The truth is your alignment is off, which is no secret, you know this... You know where you are at, you don’t know what is next, and you are having a difficult time releasing that. When you align your life with your highest purpose, I promise you, becoming more loving, present and humorous will come with ease and just flow. Just my two cents for the day…Catch you lata Senor!
