CONQUER YOUR DAY

Few advantages are fairer than a head start to the day’s race.

Santa Monica, CA

WHAT IS BEAT UP THE SUN?

Beating up the sun changed my life. I was struggling to find enough hours in the day. Struggling to find a moment to calm my mind, to feel in control, to enjoy peace.

 

But then I discovered the serenity of having the world all to myself. I discovered how warming, energizing, and accelerating rising with the sun can be… and all of the competitive advantage that follow.

 

My hope is that by sharing some of what's working for me, other people might benefit too. My hope is for your best day, your greatest experience of life.

 

This is what Beat Up the Sun is all about.

Citta Vrtti Nirodah

Written some 2,300 years ago, verse #2 out of 196 verses in The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali reads

Yogas Citta Vrtti Nirodah. Here we have a clear concise definition of yoga:  the calming of the whirling and wandering mind. What is more practical than that? More than anything else, Citta Vrtti Nirodah is what my classes are all about. The physical practice, the vinyasa, the meditation, the philosophy, it is all in service of calming the mind so that our energy can be directed most efficiently toward its greatest purpose.
