Barack Obama, 2nd Inauguration, 2013- We were made for this moment!

President Obama savoring the moment

For the first time, I heard my President express the values, explain the journey and share a courageous vision that I feel in the depths of my soul.  By the time Beyonce sang the national anthem, I was sobbing so deeply that my body shook.

There were many times during his speech, that I said his words before he did. And throughout his speech, I was a drummer, beating out the word, “Yes, Yes, Yes!”

He spoke about being treated as equals, having equal opportunity, receiving equal pay for equal work, and the sanctity of all love.  He spoke about how the imperfect outcome must not stop us from acting, persevering and creating something better.  And he reminded us that only we, together, can accomplish it.

Not only do I agree with his message, I saw the parallels between what he stands for and what we at Beyond Body Mind Spirit offer.

At Beyond Body Mind Spirit, you begin wherever you are. You expand your experience of self love, kindness, and compassion. You remember who you are, to be your word, and to enjoy living with courage and integrity. You become more comfortable with the journey that is often not a straight line but an adventurous zig-zag. And we support each other- day after day, week after week- knowing we’re interconnected and witnessing the miracles we create together.

So, if you believe it is important to preserve our individual freedoms, let’s join together and ACT.  And if you believe it is important to attain your individual dreams, let’s join together and ACT.

As President Obama said, “We are made for this moment and we will seize it.”

What People Are Saying. . .
I just completed Michele’s 90-day MORE program. As Michele will remind you, if you decide to study with her, things don’t happen to us; they happen for us. Michele happened for me just when I needed what she is committed to teaching. Commitment is the key word because she is always thinking of what she can do to help others live happy, successful lives filled with joy. She takes care to really understand what each of her students needs and instinctively suggests just the right message, yoga exercise, meditation, food, experience, etc., that will resonate with them to help them courageously live the life they want. Michele is a gift you deserve to give yourself when you’re finally ready to live your best, authentic life.

...I have suffered from emotional eating for 6 years, during which I have juggled and switched through different therapists and treatment options. I continued to feel "stuck" as the approaches focused on the past and why I acquired my disease. ...Michele's plan of remaining present- right here, right now- in addition to helping me choose love for myself, has allowed me to grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually... Michele is a true gift from God.

The benefits have been significant. My reason for doing this yoga is to improve and maintain good health. Each morning class provides me with the motivation to get up and improve my physical and mental strength. I also think one of the greatest things about Michele’s 365 Yoga Course is I can join a class any day of the week, drop in at any time during the class and leave at a time that works for me and my schedule, from anywhere I am.
