Peloton Yoga Instructor @annagreenberg wants you to find your purpose in this week's Friday fitness tip: "In the midst of rapid change and uncertainty, doing things intentionally helps to keep me sane and grounded. When we do things with a sense of purpose, even just the purpose of doing the thing itself, theres a satisfying feeling of ownership. It makes us active players in our lives instead of sitting on the sidelines just watching things happen. Yoga gave me the gift of understanding how empowering and uplifting intentional movement can be. A brief practice can put things into perspective even when they feel overwhelming or out of control. Its not just yoga that does this though, any creative, physical, mindful, intentional practice like running, cycling, meditating, strength training, journaling, art-making, cooking, and more can give a much-needed sense of control & direction to our lives as well as filling them with a little bit more joy." #onepeloton
