Discipline & Commitment

Discipline and Commitment

The word discipline means “determined efforts,” something valued and cultivated for greater clarity and commitment in all that we do. As leaders, we know the challenge of working on a project, meeting quarterly goals and managing our team.

To begin this modulethink of something that you’re facing right now, or will face in the near future, that will require strength and determination. As we proceed through the asana sequences and meditations, you’ll be reminded to come back this “challenge” so that you can internalize and physically experience this challenges and, at the same time, observe your reactions.
