My tendency, and a tendency many of us have, is the need to dump our junk on the people around us. It’s not exactly a healthy practice. Melt represents, for me, a place to come and spit it all out – all the junk. The room is hot and dark, the music takes over your body and moves you through every motion. The heavy breath releases everything you came into the room with. Every struggle, negative thought and anxious feeling get left on the mat.
You quickly realize you’re not alone. Every person in that room came to push through their junk and drive themselves toward a better self – inside and out. After a good class, I feel a sense of relief, like a weight has been lifted.
Sometimes, we just need to hear our own voice. It’s a conversation we have between the mat and ourselves.
I encourage you to take a moment and reflect on what’s really motivating you to get in shape. Yes, it’s a physical practice. We do it to keep our bodies healthy. Working out tones muscles and there’s nothing wrong with that. But, we want you to keep in plain sight your true intention, because that’s what keeps us going through the tough class, your day and through life.
