Rise Signature Vinyasa was created by owners Justin & Camacha Wolfer. Justin has gained international recognition for both his skill as a practitioner and teacher. After 8 years of intense study in yoga, eastern philosophy, and various movement systems Justin has identified the most important aspects and traits to develop being physical intelligence and mental presence. What we mean by physical intelligence is that you have a healthy relationship to your body. This is vital! Our societies relationship to the body is dysfunctional at best. It’s been shamed, sexualized, domesticated, fead artificial ingredients, etc. There is a basic need to restore the bodies health and more importantly how we feel and communicate with the body regaining trust in our ability to care for ourselves. If you cannot care for yourself then what can you care for? The other vital ingredient is mental presence. You can say that as a species human beings are moving less on a daily basis and thinking more then ever before. Is this a problem? I believe the body works best when it is moved regularly and the mind works best when it is focused on the task at hand. Mental presence is absolutely necessary to make any progress in life. The modern mind is constantly spinning, leaking vital energy like a car with hole in its gas tank. And all the while we cannot even focus long enough to gain any actual life experience. And without this we are merely speculating as to what is best for us and what is in our heart. How could you know if you’ve never followed your heart? What is here and now is all that matters. It’s the only place where anything can happen. So its essential to cultivate these two qualities moving forward. Everything else grows from these fundamental elements! Expect to be challenged both physically and mentally. Mental ease will come from accepting that you are here and now doing the work required. We start to shed our judgments and truly live. You will start to demand more of yourself. This doesn’t imply mindlessly exhausting yourself with physical exercise, it implies insisting that you will raise the quality and intelligence of your efforts. Anyone can shout and push but can you move gracefully and fluidly through life’s challenges. Are you in?
