We Work with Tapas (not the Spanish kind)
Tapas is an ancient Yogic tool for positive transformation.
Tapas means "to Burn" or "to Purify" in Sanskrit.
Going through a change, such as adopting new lifestyle habits, brings positive transformation, however there is a certain amount of discomfort that may come with changes. Yogis have welcomed this habit-forming discomfort as Purification.
Discomfort from Positive Transformation = Tapas = Purification of one's ego and negative habits
Yogis talk about the metaphor of gold purified in a hot furnace as it gets separated from impurities. Similarly, one’s negative habits get burned with the practice of Tapas.
Every Tapas practice must be:
(you must be able to actually do it with reasonable effort)
(set parameters on when, where, how, and how long you will keep this habit)
(track your daily progress)
