"No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow." ~Proverb

In our yoga practice when we are held in an uncomfortable posture, we are encouraged to stay in the fire with the understanding that eventually the pose will come to an end. This heat or fire is known as "tapas" and makes us physically and mentally stronger in our yoga practice. Tapas is experienced off the mat when we are faced with experiences that are uncomfortable and overwhelming, experiences that challenge and test our ideas and beliefs and remind us that we have very little control. When our first instinct is to run or hide, tapas challenges us to stay in the heat and be still. And in nature no matter how long the winter, spring is always sure to follow; and the harshest of winter leads to the most bountiful spring.

Teacher in the Spotlight: "I am most grateful for the honor to teach at Amador Yoga because it is a beautiful and peaceful space filled with the amazing energy of the community. Teaching is an opportunity for me to share the love and healing energy I have received from teachers in my practice. Practicing and teaching both create space for self-love, forgiveness, and access to a sense of worthiness through awareness, that I did not know could exist in myself. The students who practice at Amador Yoga are some of my favorite teachers as well on this journey through life. Thank you so much for sharing the love, light, laughter, sweat, tears, lessons, dedication, and support each person brings together to practice with me. Namaste friends!" ~Jessica Smith
