Project Description

MOTIVATIONAL YOGA

Motivation. It's what determines our thoughts and actions. It's what gets us out of bed each day. It's what inspires us to make choices that empower ourselves and the world around us.

But what happens when we lose motivation? I'm sure you've felt it before...depression, stress, anxiety, grief, and other mental ailments that drive us to make poor lifestyle choices and keep us in disarray.  This happens far too often, and ESPECIALLY in marginalized communities.

This is why MOTIVATIONAL YOGA exists. To help people rise above their circumstances and create positive changes within their mind, body, and soul.

Motivational Yoga (MOGA) is a gentle healing practice that combines motivational affirmations with specific yoga sequences that stimulate positive thinking, push physical limitations, and release emotional blockages

Inspired by Yoga Philosophy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Psychotherapeutic techniques, MOGA is designed to deepen the mind, body, & breathe connection for inner alignment and healing.

The MOGA practice is composed of 8 fixed sequences to enhance core principles of yoga in the breath, body, and mind:

  • Self-discipline
  • Clarity
  • Contentment
  • Self-awareness
  • Surrender
  • Love
  • Honesty
  • Forgiveness

A daily healing practice will help improve overall health and wellbeing, creating THAT MOGA LIFE!

THE REALITY

Regardless of age, sex, ethnicity and religion, no one is immune to the burdens of stress. Statistics demonstrate the widespread prevalence of this state of mind. Limited access to wellness programs continue to separate marginalized communities from stress relieving practices like yoga. 

Nearly 1 in 5 American adults say that their mental health has declined since last year (American Psychological Association, 2020). The survey reported that increased stress has:

  • Negatively affected their behavior (49%)
  • Increased tension in their bodies (21%)
  • Caused them to “snap” out of anger (20%)
  • Caused unexpected mood swings (20%)
In the past year, 74% of people have felt so stressed they have been overwhelmed or unable to cope.

And unfortunately, people of color are LESS likely to have access to mental health resources and safe healing spaces. 

THE VISION

What sets Motivational Yoga apart from most yoga practices is its ability to meet people where they are by using affirmations to speak to the unconscious mind while stimulating conscious breath and movement for a deeper mind-body healing connection.

We utilize motivational affirmations, positive self-talk, and specific trauma-informed yogic concepts to address a number of mental and emotional concerns, such as: addiction, ADHD, anger management, anxiety, depression, grief & loss, insomnia, imposter syndrome, PTSD, and stress.

 

"It's the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen."         
- Muhammad Ali

 

Affirmations combined with the mental and physical benefits of Yoga has been proven to create the ultimate healing experience for ALL people in need.

"Repetition and emotional intensity are key to creating lasting changes in your brains" - Dr. Tara Swart, MD PHD

The online Motivational Yoga Studio & App makes access to this therapeutic yoga practice easy and affordable. Anyone can practice MOGA any where at any time with on-demand and live classes that help create a daily healing practice to help release stress, increase focus, improve self-worth, and transform their lives.
