It’s as though our intuition, our inner voice, our hearts, have been silenced. What if you chose to move more intuitively through your life, rather than being pulled?
-Candace Soderberg– 2020 VYC Ambassador- Fort St. John
Candace has been a student of yoga for about fifteen years, and a teacher for six. She has been fortunate to have trained with Randelle Lusk, Ryan Leier, and Srivatsa Ramaswami. She is a mom of two girls, and lives in Fort St. John, BC. Candace owns a yoga studio, Cornerstone Yoga Collective where she teaches full time.
The path of yoga has been a path back to self for Candace. Unpacking, and unlearning to realign back to truth. This path has shown her her greatest strength and grace.
She teaches to hold space for people to explore themselves in a safe place. To get to know themselves on a more intimate level. To move closer to the deep wisdom within yourself.
We are living in a world where everything outside of us can reach us through a screen at any given moment. The need for external validation appears to be stronger than ever. We look outside of ourselves for answers to everything. We are in a game of tug of war between everything we think we need and want. It’s as though our intuition, our inner voice, our hearts, have been silenced. What if you chose to move more intuitively through your life, rather than being pulled?
Take a moment – stand with your feet together, close your eyes and allow your chin to fall towards your heart – the simple action of looking in. Just notice the subtle sway of your body, moving in and out of balance. But also notice the moments of stillness and stability, when you simply fall into true alignment – without any effort at all. The stability and sweetness that you feel, is always there within you.
That feeling of effortlessness is your greatest guide. It is your internal compass. I am a believer that the body talks. But it is up to us to listen. Listening takes courage – a lot of courage. Your intuition speaks loudly, but we have mastered the art of not listening. Get honest and intimate with yourself. This practice of truth, or Satya, is not an easy path. It requires us to unmask ourselves, to face what may be uncomfortable and just simply surrender.
The more attuned we become to our truth, life begins to fall into alignment. This doesn’t mean the path is easy – life is ever changing. We are in a constant transition. Moving in and out of balance each step of the way, constantly realigning. Learning and unlearning. But acknowledging that every thought, word, and action, extends beyond you, gives you the opportunity to choose in every moment what aligns you to your truth. Allow yourself to be guided by the sweetness. Your inner knowing. Trusting the wisdom within.
