When there is clarity in purpose there is strength in action.  When they join forces, we can be empowered to design a life of meaning and be the innovators and leaders we were meant to be.  – Paula Tursi

If you have a dream or a goal but you can’t get over the fear of just going for it, this course will help you understand those fears and excuses. It will guide you take real, measurable action. You will tackle your demons and realize you have the strength to reach your dream, your true potential and your purpose.

This course will marry the psychology of yoga with your daily life, in theory and in practice. We will look into your shadows to find what is stopping you from moving forward and owning your life’s purpose.  Each week you will take both spiritual and physical actions to create an alignment between inner purpose and outer actions.
