The vision of Inner Revolution Yoga Studio

Inner Revolution started out as an idea to bring yoga and spinning together. As a spin and yoga teacher, Brenna found so many benefits of practicing yoga after spin class. The name was Inner Revolution as yoga was the inner and revolution was the turning of the wheels. As the vision grew and came into reality the inner revolution was really about the change and revolution of what was happening inside of Brenna’s heart. A softening a fight against the ego. As Brenna continues to heal her inner revolution is turning into peace and joy. As she creates a sacred space for others to find their inner revolutions!

This is a great question. Authenticity is about being truly you. So how do you bring you into your yoga practice? The first tip is to start every class with a body scan to see where your body is in that present moment. Once you have an idea where your body is you can move into the body and start where it is. If we start where we think we are without first checking or tuning in we can disregulate our energy. This means we can block or create excess energy that will put us out of balance. If we tune or check into the body first, find out where we truly are and start from there we can balance our energy with our practice.

Feeling lately that we live in a world that is so inauthentic branded and marketed towards buying things to make us into something else. I feel there is real power in authenticity. Being true to you has never been more cool. Showing others our authentic self creates an instant connection. Because authenticity is a connection with ourselves others feel this connection. This is what we all crave. This deeper connection with ourselves. When we can tap into this power we can help others develop it. The more and more disconnected we become the more we close up space in our bodies and move away from our authentic self.

I was shocked today to see that we still really live in a society of in acceptance and intolerance. As I had lunch at a local pub below our studio I witnessed this intolerance and instead of getting angry at the waitress and the client I saw deep wounds in them both. I refuse to be intolerant and accept all loving beings on this earth. As I heard the words towards another soul that hurt me I sent love to those who spoke. Instead of getting angry I feel in love with how my heart opens to all. To overcome intolerance and accceptance we must open our heart to all.

Choosing to view one side. Shaped by life experiences ignorance can lead to attachment to certain view points. When we become attached to a point of view we create our own suffering. We close our mind and limit our expansion. The opposite to ignorance is acceptance. Acceptance of all points of view and be able to send love in the face of ignorance.

  1. Love: Love is an intimate connection that helps us open up our heart to feel more. There are many types of love.
  2. Food: Food is a connection to our bodies and the earth. When we connect with our food our body begins to develop more intelligence and we can access deeper levels of healing.
  3. Physical: Touch is needed to connect. If we are not touched enough it will be very hard for us to connect to others.
  4. Mental/Emotional: Connecting to others on a mental level means we can relate to them. We can understand and have compassion for them.
  5. Spiritual: Connecting to something greater that is. This connection helps us expand our broader sense of everything around us. When we have spiritual connection we need nothing else as we are satisfied with what is.
  6. Cognitive: Connecting to a level of thought that others understand helps us work through problems to find solutions. 
  7. Social: Connecting with others and creating communities is a way to feel supported and that you are not alone.
