Shavasana with my sweet Calvin @babycalvinandfamily ... what an experience the process of giving birth was! a lot of you ask me how it went and I have to say yoga helped me a lot ... I taught until the last day of my pregnancy with no problems... His exact due date was August 7 and I ended up giving birth Saturday 13th of July 3 weeks early... I lost a bit of water on Friday 12th and I went to the clinic to check and they tested for amniotic fluid and told me it wasn’t that ... so I went back home but my gynecologist told me to go that Saturday morning to do a monitoring to check the baby’s heart just in case .... So Saturday 9am they started to monitor him and they checked again for amniotic fluid and this time they realized that I was losing some slowly by slowly and that they had to induce me... mentally I wasn’t prepared to stay at the clinic that day so I panicked a bit ... first time in my whole pregnancy I started to feel contractions I didn’t have any this entire time my Gynecologist told me usually when they induce it could take 24 h or 48 h before the baby comes so I was preparing for a long labor... the product that they induced me with reacted so fast and so strong that the contractions were so violent I couldn’t contrôle my breath ... it felt like someone was hitting me in the chest really hard so couldn’t inhale ... I wanted to try natural birth but at this point I asked for the epidural really the smallest amount possible ... the cool thing about that is as soon as they did it I stoped feeling the crazy pain but still felt the contractions, my legs and everything else just not the crazy pain ... the product worked on me so fast that from 11am when I did the epidural and was open at 2cm by 3pm I was open at 10 with baby coming .... it was so magical because all I needed was 2 pushes as I was feeling my abs and everything else and baby Calvin was there at 4:11pm .... for a first birth I couldn’t dream for a better outcome I’ll do a full article on my blog with more details 🤰👶
Life is a journey of tenacity. Only the tough gets to the top through the storm. Take the steps one by one though the errand may be arduous. Never give up though you may grow weary. Think of the purpose though its attainment may be tough. Dare to get to the crown though you may meet the obstacles. You are never born to do nothing all day but to dare to do the undone. If only it is reasonable enough within the real reasons of your life, and if your soul and spirit convince you of getting it done, then, you have the real reasons to dare for the crown. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
It's not what you say out of your mouth that determines your life, it's what you whisper to yourself that has the most power! It does not matter how long you are spending on the earth, how much money you have gathered or how much attention you have received. It is the amount of positive vibration you have radiated in life that matters.... ✨✨✨✨✨✨ Wearing : @oysho_sport @oysho #oysho #oyshoyoga #oyshosport
Breathe in peace, breathe out stress. Relaxing can bring relief to much of what ails you. In our stressful and often negative world, your decision to make relaxing a priority will help you navigate, handle, and minimize stress. Doing so will positively impact your health, well-being, and happiness. ✨✨✨✨✨✨
Perfection of effort is not required, by the way. It is the consistency of attempting to work these tools that brings the progress. It’s like anything else. If I want to tone muscle, lifting a ten-pound weight a few times every day will move me toward my goal much quicker than hoisting a fifty-pound barbell once a week. Yes, it really is true: “Slow and steady wins the race.” Just try a little, every day. You’ll see. 💪 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Life is a good teacher and a good friend. Things are always in transition, if we could only realize it. Nothing ever sums itself up in the way that we like to dream about. The off-center, in-between state is an ideal situation, a situation in which we don’t get caught and we can open our hearts and minds beyond limit. It’s a very tender, nonaggressive, open-ended state of affairs. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To stay with that shakiness — to stay with a broken heart, with a rumbling stomach, with the feeling of hopelessness and wanting to get revenge — that is the path of true awakening. Sticking with that uncertainty, getting the knack of relaxing in the midst of chaos, learning not to panic — this is the spiritual path. Getting the knack of catching ourselves, of gently and compassionately catching ourselves, is the path of the warrior. We catch ourselves one zillion times as once again, whether we like it or not, we harden into resentment, bitterness, righteous indignation — harden in any way, even into a sense of relief, a sense of inspiration. wearing : @oysho_sport @oysho #oysho #oyshoyoga #oyshosport

Breath in...Breath out... Follow the air...Notice how your body relaxes...Notice how your body reacts... From the tips of your toes...Feel them resting...Relaxing...Let your feet loose..Breath in...Breath out...Notice how that feeling of relaxation propagates up through your entire body...Feel the air... Relaxing attracts insight. Plus, it is good for our well-being. It replenishes our energies and refreshes our mind so that we can be more receptive.

There are three types of people out there; those who lean, those who lift, and those who lead. People who lean immobilize you; stay away from them. People who lift inspire you; keep them near. People who lead positively influence you; seek them out. My love @yogawithgus is lifting his family up 🥰 pic by @emiliezangarelli 🙌
If you try anything, if you try to lose weight, or to improve yourself, or to love, or to make the world a better place, you have already achieved something wonderful, before you even begin. Forget failure. If things don't work out the way you want, hold your head up high and be proud. And try again. And again. And again!

Life is a balanced system of learning and evolution. Whether pleasure or pain; every situation in your life serves a purpose. It is up to us to recognize what that purpose could be.
Get going. Move forward. Aim High. Plan a takeoff. Don't just sit on the runway and hope someone will come along and push the airplane. It simply won't happen. Change your attitude and gain some altitude. Believe me, you'll love it up here.
Hey guys today is the international yoga day so a very special day for me ... I want to share some thoughts with you. I have been practicing yoga for almost 20 years now and when I look back it has helped me so much in my artistic career ( singer , dancer , writer musician... ) it’s never easy to deal with an industry where everyone is expecting from you to be perfect and always on top of the game ... it’s always a roller coaster of emotions where you feel the highs and lows really deep in your soul ... a bit more then 2 years ago I started to work with @oysho @oysho_sport and recently became their world wide ambassador. I really love there yoga collection the materials, the colors and I’m so happy to be a part of Oysho family feeling supported and encourage to inspire others ... yoga is about community and supporting one another so today for the international yoga day make someone feel good , happy and help someone to be a better version of themselves, support there dreams , say something nice to make their day ... anything that will make you look back when you are in bed tonight and say that you did some good ... Happy International Yoga day my beautiful people #oysho #oyshoyoga #oyshosport ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
Dare to dream! If you did not have the capability to make your wildest wishes come true, your mind would not have the capacity to conjure such ideas in the first place. There is no limitation on what you can potentially achieve, except for the limitation you choose to impose on your own imagination. What you believe to be possible will always come to pass - to the extent that you deem it possible. It really is as simple as that. With @anikoyoga pic by @yogawithgus
Take a break from the stresses of life and use that time to rediscover the important things that matter to you most. We all deserve an anti-stress day to recharge our batteries. Yesterday I got invited by @mayteafrance to talk about my way to recharge my batteries... there are so many ways for exemple we talked about Meditation ( through breathing techniques or mantras ) meditation that directly impacts our nervous system by reducing the body's production of stress-related chemicals such as cortisol. It's a great way to recharge our personal batteries. What’s your way to recharge ? No matter what just find a bit of time for yourself every day and do something that makes you happy.
Don't just learn, experience. Don't just read, absorb. Don't just change, transform. Don't just relate, advocate. Don't just promise, prove. Don't just criticize, encourage. Don't just think, ponder. Don't just take, give. Don't just see, feel. Don’t just dream, do. Don't just hear, listen. Don't just talk, act. Don't just tell, show. Don't just exist, live.
