Time You Enjoy Wasting Is Not Wasted Time

The focus on productivity and profitability is paramount in corporate culture in America. The emphasis on a high hourly wage combines with this to distort the value of our time. How we “spend” our time is important. Having a hobby is a lost art form. Wasting Time is not celebrated in a society that is lost in a rat race.

How do we break the cycle? How do we claim our families and save our souls? Sometimes we have to waste a little time. We have to dive into our passions and enjoy how we invest our time…whether that is watching the waves roll in or feeling the cool mountain breeze. Let your body and mind relax, you will perform at your highest potential. Some days, I need to sit on a rock and enjoy the view, some days a hike or ride and others days I need to get on my mat and do the work. Wring my body out, work thru physical pains and mental blocks. Every time I get on my mat, I have a chance to begin again. You have that chance every single day.Time Wasted

“Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.” ― Marthe Troly-Curtin

Bio
Debi was first introduced to yoga in 1986 while attending school 1 mile down the road from the Kripalu Yoga Center. Debi enjoyed yoga and continued to practice, but it was not until after completing her Masters degree in Clinical Social Work and working as a psychotherapist that she realized the transformational power of yoga. It was always Debi’s dream to find a way to combine the powerful aspects of the physical practice with the insight and process work of psychotherapy. In 2008, Debi attended her first training with Baron Baptiste and realized that she had found what she was looking for- a powerful asana practice, with authentic sharing, and a global community that is committed to empowerment and service.
As a teacher, Debi has the knowledge and tools to deliver a thoughtful, dynamic asana practice and the insight and intuition to speak to your heart. Debi has an in-depth understanding of yoga and body mechanics that allows her to move seamlessly from teaching a power vinyasa class to a deeply meditative restorative practice, incorporating alignment, therapeutics and personal growth. Debi shares of herself courageously, inspiring others to connect to their spirit, and generate possibility.
Debi Grilo is an E-RYT 500, Certified Baptiste Yoga Instructor, and the Director of Teacher Development at Bala Vinyasa Yoga. She began teaching in 1997 and facilitates the BVY 200 and 500 hour Teacher Trainings. Debi credits Baron Baptiste, Rodney Yee, Tias Little, Aadil Pakhivala and David Swenson for inspiring her practice and teaching. Debi is a mentor for The Africa Yoga Project, is on the Certification Panel for the Baptiste Power Yoga Institute,  and a lululemon Ambassador. Debi also works as a consultant in team building, communication, and empowerment.

I’m not pissed, I just don’t get it.  You are the first teacher I ever took a class from and you inspired me, lit me up and made me come back for more.  You changed the way I think, act and operate in this world.  You planted a seed of growth and that seed took off.  I followed your teachers and went to the same schools that you did.  I followed your path because I saw something in you I wanted to be.

When I found my voice you let me teach your students.  I loved it.  I wanted more.  More was not available at your studio and opportunity knocked at Marin Power Yoga.

I understand business and the effect of competition.  In my “day job” new contractors are born every day and many of my past employees have become my peers.  I welcome it because it forces me to up my game and stay present to my clients and their needs.

The stance that some studios have taken against prior teachers is confusing, and in my eyes unacceptable.  How do we all grow as teachers if we are not allowed to practice in studios that we previously taught in?  We need the interaction with everyone’s classes to keep all of our teaching fresh for our students.  It’s our students that are important and our ability to enable them to grow with us is what counts.  Not allowing the interaction between teachers and studios throughout the yoga community is counterproductive, and detrimental to the studios, teachers and students.   It’s fear based, and if anyone taught me about fighting fears, about action and outcome it was you.

All teachers are welcome, and encouraged to practice with us at MPY.  It’s good for our students to see powerful yogi’s in our classes.  You’re invited! I would love to see you!
