“Focus on your breath or other body parts…anything but the fact that you can’t do it any longer.”

So I took my first yoga class last night with the great Vanessa Kudrat. It was hard, but it was great.

It was difficult for me to hold some of the poses, but I stuck with the class and am proud of myself.

One of the poses had us holding our arms out for what it seemed like an hour. I had to stop a couple times. I was focused, but I was focusing on the wrong things. Instead of focusing on the fact that you cannot hold your arms up any longer, you should focus instead on your breath or other body parts. I already knew that your mind gets tired before your body, but I didn’t execute.

I had so many thoughts going on in my head like…

“Why can’t I do this?”

“Why is that 60 year old lady holding it longer than me?!”


“Why am I thinking so much?”

I wanted to quit.

So you know what I’m going to do?

I’m going to take a hatha yoga class this morning at 7am to practice my mental toughness.

I don’t believe in trying your best.

I believe in doing whatever it takes.

Here I go…

Stay tuned for Vanessa Kudrat’s amazing peak performance tips…

Thanks for reading.
