What a better time of year than now to make some commitments to invest in YOU! Yes, you - your health, fitness, flexibility, mobility, strength, endurance, mood, mindset, goal crushing approach to everything you do in your life! I’m accepting new clients for 2019 for those of you interested in working one on one or with me! I develop catered plans for your unique body and mindset, and together we roll! You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Traveling allows us a unique opportunity to acquire greater understanding of cultures, humanity, and the world around us. This we already know. The effect of taking one's personal practice outside the routine comfort zone can wildly enhance one's perspective of the world and self. Combine the two for a life changing experience.
30 days until the commencement of the next 2016 Heed Yourself Bali Retreat. Can't wait to lead practice and share laughs and breakthroughs in this space. This is what all the planning and prepping leads to - bliss in waiting! Will you be joining us?
A couple spots left. Time is of the essence, just a few weeks away 🤗❤️
The terraced landscapes of Bali are endlessly mesmerizing. Everything about this place - the food, the people, the colors, the energy is spell-binding. So looking forward to the next magical journey ahead.
This goes out to everyone, but especially to my friend today in need (you know who you are): Believe in the crazy notion that you once rose from the waters to begin walking on two feet. Everything is possible. Keep looking forward and living your dream. What unfolds in between are just the crinkles. The more you walk the smoother the path becomes. Walk on my friends!
The Monkey Forest is one of the highlights for the upcoming Heed Yourself Bali Retreat on Oct 15-21, 2016. We will have the pleasure to visit these guys and gals in the forest, by the temples, in the countryside and even by some oceans. If this kind of thing speaks to your heart you've come to the right place. Reserve your spot now at www.heedfitness.com/bali. All levels are welcome. Luxury private villas in the tropical forest oh my! Spa facilities oh my! Open yoga deck oohlala! Ask any questions my way! Spots are very limited this year so don't wait until they're gone or until flights get pricey again! This is one of those cease the day moments- if you're considering, act swiftly :)
Avoidance is the recipe for nothing. If there's something in your life you've been meaning to do, or something you have to do but doing everything to avoid it, put on your badass face, get out there, and just do it. Life. That's how we reach our goals. Even when we find excuses not do.
One of my favorite things to do in the middle of a run is to pause and find a little lunge and an added twist. I don't mind the interruption. The benefits are immediately tangible - greater range of motion and integration of entire musculoskeletal system over running stiff and stuck together like glue.

Whether we call something a yoga pose, gymnastics, fitness, or martial arts, at the end of the day, becomes irrelevant. There is so much crossover between the disciples of body movement, sports, artistic expression, and meditative movement. What speaks to me most is the effect it has on my physical being, my psyche, and my clarity of thought. When executed properly, I always get taken back to the moments of competitive sport and how a basic centering with breath was absolutely critical to performing my best on a given day. Moral of the story - when your body and mind move congruently, amazing things can happen, both in practice and what ensues in your life afterwards. Carry on. Move beautifully. Feel good. Be you.
This is essentially a big part of what I teach my students and clients. If you'd like to join me, reach out to me at email@example.com to learn more about my public classes, workshops, retreats, and private coaching sessions. In the meantime, carry on my friends. Move as you were intended to perform, exist, and think beautifully.

Maintaining equanimity in the face of pleasure or pain allows for a peaceful mind, even though pain is still pain. The mind keeps knowing. #Going inward.
Costa Rica, here we come! Leaving Tuesday on red eye flight, we'll be exploring Arenal Volcano, the hot springs, and Monteverde Cloud Forest before heading down to the Nicoya Peninsula to Anamaya Resort, where the Yoga/Fitness/Aerial retreat will be lead by myself (Naheed Radfar) and Christine Van Loo. I'm super excited to feel the hot humid weather and to explore movement meditation and acrobatic play in an idyllic setting with friends, love ones, and new people with whom relationships are bound to thrive across the span of many years. Travel on my friends, near or far. Life's journey is a constant staple. Recognize it, enjoy it, appreciate it. It has been a few years since my annual pilgrimages outside the country. I used to leave at LEAST once a year, sometimes MOVING all the way to Africa (with my cat, yes, I said it, my cat), for near two years. The rest will be for another blog post. But for now....I am off in two sleeps away to Costa Rica, where the locals say Pura Vida. See you on the other side my friends! xo
