Hi, my name is Donna Papetti and, in some respect, The Warrior Workout is a product of my own personal journey of self exploration and evolution. About 10 years ago I woke up to the realization that I had been asleep in my own life. I recognized that I was playing a game of hide and seek with life and with myself. I was afraid to get to know myself, afraid to accept personal responsibility and afraid to live life fully. Consequently, I was making choices from that place of fear which did not get me what I felt I wanted or needed and I was stuck in an uncomfortable cycle of discontent and disharmony. When I woke up I began living my life over again. I did not know how to do it and I fumbled around quite a bit during which I judged myself endlessly, beat myself up, tortured myself and suffered through it all.
Then I woke up again and began living again. I still didn't know how to do it although it felt like I fumbled less, judged less and didn't feel quite as beaten up. There was more kindness, consideration and compassion. The element of forgiveness was also present.
When I rubbed the sleep out of my eyes yet again, the world looked different. I looked different, everybody looked different. It was all brighter, fuller, new. The hold I had on my needs and wants loosened and the tightness that pervaded my body was no longer there. I could breathe deeply. I could laugh and play again. There wasn't as much mind chatter bouncing around as there used to be and I sensed the availability of a quiet stillness.
I woke up to the possibility of the Miracle that I am. It surprised me. It felt authentic. It expanded. It is not just a possibility now. I am a Miracle.
Every moment I wake up to the Miracle that I am. You are a Miracle also. I am absolutely no different than you. If I discovered this Miracle within me, you can too. That is howThe Warrior Workout, came to be a tangible entity, how I got unstuck and how once again, life became a playground full of joy and laughter.
The Warrior Workout is a program of exploration and change. More to the point, it is a program of evolution and, more specifically, your evolution. For this journey to take place The Warrior Workout utilizes, as its exploratory tool, the one entity that has been with you since the moment of conception - the human body. You use your body as your map, your tuning fork, your guide to discovery and your impetus for change.
For ease of exploration, understanding and assimilation the human body is broken down into five bodies - Physical, Mental, Emotional, Energy, and Spiritual. Each of these bodies is examined individually with the acknowledgment that there exists a relationship between each body, as well as, a complete integration of all five bodies. As an integrated being all your layers are connected and encased within the human body making it your perfect teacher in the quest for acceptance and freedom.
In The Warrior Workout there are exercises for each body that will help you learn more about yourself. These exercises are designed to help increase self awareness, open up and enhance communication with your body, your mind, your emotions, your internal energy system and, most importantly, that centered, all
accepting part of you that knows what is necessary to manifest the life and body of your dreams. With The Warrior Workout as your guide you become aware of what you want, what you need and who and what you are. This awareness leads to expansion and acceptance - acceptance of your body, yourself, of others and of life. This acceptance opens the door to freedom. Your body holds the key to acceptance, to truth and to freedom.
You are a Miracle. Let The Warrior Workout help you to embrace that truth. Let The Warrior Workout help you create the body and life of your dreams!
