Transformation Starts On The Inside

Transformation Starts On The Inside

I named my studio and my business The Yoga Transformative because I experience and witness how transformative yoga is – every single day. Yoga changed my life, but it is the internal transformation that has been the most profound. It’s the same with everyone I teach, and I love hearing my clients talk about how yoga has transformed their mind, perspectives – and their entire lives.

The dictionary definition of transformation is simple: The act, or process, of changing completely.

To me, changing completely means changing E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G. But how many of us attach to the physical transformation rather than the internal? It’s obviously far easier to view a ‘before and after’ of someone’s physical changes than seeing the inner shifts they’ve made.

But all external transformation requires mental commitment and internal change.

And that’s what so many of us miss.

Without internal transformation, external change won’t last long.  You can move to Bali but if you take all your emotional baggage, negative mindset and limiting beliefs with you then nothing will change except the backdrop.

Internal Transformation

I believe that transformation starts on the inside – transforming your internal stories and beliefs so that you can move forward in your life.  Most of the time we aren’t even aware of what subconscious beliefs are holding us back, and one of the first pieces I do with my coaching clients is helping them recognise and change their inner dialogues.

For some that means learning that they need to slow down to heal their relationship with themselves.  Others may need to build better belief systems so that they can sustainably commit to good habits.

Again, transformation moves from the inside out.  We can’t get to where we want to be – or become who we want to be – without doing that internal work.

I’m so excited right now because I’m currently refining my new coaching programs! So many people who are struggling to get back on their feet after 18 months of lockdowns.  My coaching offerings are especially perfect for anyone who feels stuck and needs support, direction and accountability in moving forwards again.  Want to know more?
