..I just have to be close to you, one way or another. either physically, emotionally or mentally. and sometimes I need all of it at once.. [jm.storm] since birth we are destined for connection with others. mother, parents, family, teachers, friends, mentors, lovers, partners... our essence craves connection. it’s through the connection of two people that one can see himself. . . #close #to #you #closeness #vulnerability #creates #connection #physical #emotional #mental #essence #quotes #itsallaboutconnection #claritybliss #trusttheunknown

if we are not feeling it— we are not healing it. only vulnerability allows for deep connection to ourselves and to others. while protection of our heart and the avoidance of getting hurt or feeling deep feelings might feel safe, it also protects us from fully immersing into all facets of our inner and outer world. healing takes place when we allow all of it. . . #allow #feelings #go #deep #breathe #heart #healing #understanding #feeling #evolving #openness #trust #trusttheunknown #claritybliss #itsallaboutconnection #meditation #yoga

build intimacy by completely committing to the people you love. we often don’t give our love, cause we are too scared to not receive back and we are afraid to be hurt. enjoy giving — more than receiving. practice longing — without the expectation of satisfaction. let vulnerability create connection. . . #intimacy #closeness #commitment #vulnerability #love #dedication #give #receive #satisfaction #longing #connection #be #moment #itsallaboutconnection #trusttheunknown #claritybliss #annikaisterling

HEART OVER HEAD our head analyses and tries to put every new experience and encounter into some kind of category which is already familiar. this ability and internal urge to judge and categorize is important in life, but it also blocks us from experiencing something totally new and unknown. we can use our practice to release old and existing thinking structures and create an open awareness which will lead to a reset of the mind. at the same time we use our yoga practice to shift our consciousness from the mind to the heart, cause the heart only experiences “the new” and opens us for complete new experiences. join my heart over head yoga workshop at @damngoodyogahamburg on august 18th (next sunday) from 2pm-4pm. be inspired to change your mindset in a positive way, dive through heart opening back bends and a meditation. registration via @damngoodyogahamburg 🖤 . . #heart #wide #open #shift #mindset #experience #new #inspiration #trusttheunknown #backbends #yoga #heartopener #receive #love #enjoy #itsallaboutconnection #claritybliss #workshop #weekend 📷 @felix_matthies 🎨 @mayartist

handstands never come with stability and security for me. my limbs always seem too long to succeed, my core has lots of mobility where as my shoulders are missing flexibility.. but what handstand teaches me over and over is to fall in love with uncertainty —the opposite to what my soul always craves for. I have been on the look for certainty, security and stability for most parts of my life.. but in reality it’s a pretty much unattainable goal, since everything around me is always changing and evolving. falling in love with uncertainty is a practice, a process.. and it’s so worth it. uncertainty allows new things to happen in life. things we didn’t anticipate or had foreseen. It allows me to stay open, adjustable, flowing with life and it teaches me to accept the days when things come easy and the days where it simply doesn’t... . . #life #practice #uncertainty #new #things #openess #flow #adjustable #awareness #acceptance #trust #faith #patience #itsallaboutconnection #trusttheunknown #claritybliss @villapsilicrete

chairo is greek for “to feel or show great joy and delight”. most of us are hungry for joy, because most often we feel predominant all the missing parts in our life, the “not good enoughs”, “not well enough”, “not having enough” instead of aligning ourselves with all the beauty and goodness there is. even in the most joyful times our mind tricks us with thoughts of fear and how it can be only a dream or be destroyed very soon. we anticipate bad things happening way more often than good things. inviting more joyful moments in our life starts by choosing a mind-set of sufficiency inside and outside. quit searching for “more” or “better”— by knowing that we are enough, that there is enough, that it is good enough, we manifest how wonderful things really are instead of thriving for the most exhilarating moment, overflowing abundance and the extraordinary. value comes from the ordinary, the simplicity, the natural and the pure. experiencing joy is being aware and recognizing how good things really are and applying gratitude for it on a regular base. joy is something we actively consciously attain and integrate into our life ♥️ . . #joy #gratitude #chairo #enough #good #rich #abundant #sufficiency #mindset #life #simplicity #ordinary #everyday #natural #pure #thankful #wonderful #itsallaboutconnection #trusttheunknown #claritybliss #yogaforwellbeing #yoga #awareness #meditation

sometimes it is a tough work of staying soft and receptive inside, but it is always worth it.. when we try to not give a damn about what other people do to us, think about us and we aim to make ourselves immune to getting hurt, we are also blocking our capabilities of connecting. staying vulnerable is a risk we have to take, if we want to experience connection. . . #thrive #connection #itsallaboutconnection #soft #heart #vulnerability #yoga #practice #inside #job #feel #feelings #open #receptive #allow #allowtheunknown #trust #claritycleanse <<next yoga retreat with me to the sahara desert (@sahara_yoga) is in october 2020>>
