Structurally, Outlaw Yoga is a heated vinyasa style yoga that is simplistic to follow, yet extremely physically challenging. (Tip: There are a lot of chaturangas.) Mentally, the Outlaw Yoga practice took me to a place where I could let it out and release whatever crap I had pent up that day, week, month. Pretty sure I got out a month’s worth. It was like punching the shit out of a heavy bag one minute, and then relaxing in a hammock on a private island the next. So what I’m saying is – Outlaw Yoga is an extremely intense vinyasa yoga practice, yet serene and meditative at the same time. The Outlaw Yoga classes have a unique way of finding balance beyond tree pose. I left class with the most awesome yoga high and the proper technique for bear hugs. It’s quite the trip.
The Outlaw Yoga co-founder, Justin Kaliszewski thrives on defying the rules and ignoring what he is “told to do.” When I read his book, “Outlaw Protocol: How to Live as an Outlaw Without Becoming a Criminal,” I was taken on a difficult self-journey that is raw and gritty. I faced what and why I do what I do, and was reminded of how I must take action to create my reality. Life is a battle of ego; knowing when to push forward, and when to let go takes practice and dedication to mindfulness. As Justin says in his book, “Simple in theory, hard as hell in application.”
