What if I told you there was only one thing you really needed to advance your yoga practice? Would you believe me?

The key to unlocking the magic of your practice. Without this one thing, there really is no way you ever will further, deepen, or advance your practice anyway. You need it and you need to live it right this moment. So what is this one very special important thing?

I might dare say it’s the most important thing. More important than the postures, breath, knowledge, peace. Confidence is the one element that will bring beauty, love, fearlessness, improvement, and courage to the practice. I know it has been the most important element for me and I live it everyday, to practice it on and off the mat.
