Getting into Your Saturday Night Fever Internal Strut.
This new midlife phase should be a time to take stock so you can feel confident about who you want to be in midlife. Yet how can you do this when you're stuck in a rut meeting all your commitments, never having time for yourself. This is not how life should be.

It's time to delve into your own priorities, decide how you want to use your time and show up in your life.
It's time to stop reacting in the moment and let other people run the show.
It's time to stop feeling resentful.
We'll use the more philosophical aspects of yoga, specifically curated the help you step off the treadmill and get internal clarity on who you are in midlife and where you want to go. One example of this how I interweave movement with journaling prompts. The movement, themed to address your challenges, will keep your body ticking over and free up your subconscious. Then the targeted journaling prompts help guide you to the big internal breakthroughs.
You'll find you're less resentful and your relationships improve - because you are showing up in your life with more certainty.
Stride forth in life with that confidence - and get your Saturday Night Fever strut back.
