One year of nothing. Savvy Zen was another dead yoga website.
All the promises of new books, podcasts, blog posts and videos were broken.
I failed myself at resisted my creativity. The lessons I had to learn while stagnant were beautiful though. Lessons that redefined my definition and perception of love, life and my own inner struggles.
Now it is time to begin the Great Work. The community is losing awareness. The drama and new direction of yoga in this past year is ridiculous. As a collective, we need to draw back inward to our home practices and find true unity.
One definition of yoga is “unlimited potential.”
Does that mean we need to be perfect? Absolutely not, my past year could be defined as “no potential.”
Life moves in cycles, however, our downs shouldn’t involve us supporting soulless corporate yoga, giving our personal responsibility/power to gurus and turning outward instead of inward.
My purpose is to be the polar opposite of that, and build a team at Savvy Zen who supports that same goal.
I love this website, yoga, nature, knowledge, writing and everything surrounding spirituality in general. I will never say yes to any incompatibility that holds me back from doing what I love.
In time I will find clarity on why the universe pushed this break on me.
I hope any fans or readers who lost access to parts of this site they loved forgive me for letting this website decay.
What is Next For Savvy Zen?
In my year off a lot has happened in yoga. Many ideas have come to my head for this website, and luckily I wrote most of them down.
My first step for Savvy Zen is to rebuild. The front page and other basic pages need a total revamping. My old page builder shut down, so I upgraded to a great service called Beaver Builder. In the next week, every page on the whole website will be re-done.
Many posts on Savvy Zen will be rewritten. Some are a year old and still need to be released.
I am re-doing the category section, to help clarify the new vision of Savvy Zen.
In the coming month of July, I will create an introduction post or magnum opus post on each of these categories.
Conscious Yoga Philosophy
Spinal Movements — QiQong
Yoga Book Reviews
Strength Training for Yoga — Kettlebells for Yoga
Free Yoga E-Books
Free Yoga Classes
In the coming month or two I will be releasing a new podcast. It will occur weekly and focus on clarity, truth and the evolution of Yoga. The area of growth I want to explore from my previous podcast, is to have guests on and try to engage with them in unique conversations.
Free Yoga Classes:
I will continue to release new Yoga classes on my YouTube channel. Many of them will be focused on very specific things. Such as Yin Yoga for flexibility or Yoga for emotional mastery. Excited to explore this aspect and become more active in recording and releasing classes.
Many free eBooks will be released on Savvy Zen in the coming months on a variety of topics. This is the area I am most excited about!
In my time away from Savvy Zen I have been working on a novel and poetry book. They have been going great! In the coming months I will create a new writing website for them. In 2019 I will publish a book on yoga. More on that later though!
Before the end of 2018 I plan to have a free and paid video course on certain yoga topics up. Super excited about where this can go. I’ve upgraded my camera and microphone and excited to experiment with a free project first!
No more holding back! Time to get writing and doing yoga!
