My altar at home

My altar at home.

On the left a quote by Marianne Williamson “our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves “who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?” Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small does not serve the world.”

And behind that quote the book Intuitive Eating, which presents the scientific view point and informs much of my work.

Hopefully I’ll continue evolving into the person who can grow and really serve the world on a massive scale via these yoga weight loss principles!

On the right, Buddha.

Buddha to me symbolizes compassionate discipline.

In weight loss I teach that Just Do It is what you’ve been told your whole life. Just eat less, just exercise more, just don’t be lazy …

But discipline without compassion is harmful, especially in terms of dieting and weight loss.

Dieting, for about 50%, causes weight gain! While overall almost nobody loses weight when measured over 5 years.

Dieting is discipline, without compassion.

And so yeah, I try to be disciplined in my own affairs, but not too much, to balance myself out with compassion.

I think Buddha would approve

PS the embroidery behind the Buddha I received as a gift from my uncle when he traveled in Mongolia. Thank you!!
