First footsteps in the sand on Anguilla and I am already feeling that island vibe. I love the Caribbean so much 😍 It feels like something in me just relaxes when I’m near the beach like this. Yes I know I live near an amazing beach (and I’m grateful for that), but out here on a remote island it’s something special. I feel the salty air on my skin and powdery white sand between my toes and I’m beaming with pure joy. I’m counting my blessings to be here. _ Bikini @liquidoactive Beach @malliouhana Photo @timfeldmannyoga #caribbean #anguilla #blessing #island 🏝

Cleveland on fire 🔥 Being from Miami I’m used to the heat, but it feels different here, somehow hotter and more severe without the beach. A friend sent me a photo of her car in Chicago and it looked like the car was sweating! This year has already been a record breaker in terms of temperatures. The reality of these temperature extremes (remember the polar vortex?) seems to prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that we are in a climate crisis to me. But that’s just my opinion. _ I am a nature lover and an environmentalist. I always have been. I do not think this is a political stance. If God created the world and gave it to humankind as gift, shouldn’t we be good stewards of this miraculous planet? Doesn’t clean water, clean air and a sustainable climate benefit everyone eventually? Aren’t trees, rivers, oceans, birds, bees and other wild animals the inheritance of every single human being regardless of religion or political orientation? Doesn’t protecting these resources outweigh short-term profit maximization? _ I understand that we can’t really take care of the planet if we can’t take care of ourselves. When we are hurting and miserable we often lash out and blame. When anxiety takes over it can spawn a dangerous cold-blooded narcissism. When we feel insecure we are more likely risk everything to protect what little we have rather than lend a hand to those in need. When we feel undervalued and hopeless it becomes easier to foster hate and resentment. When you cannot pay the bills, contemplating the climate crisis seems like a luxury. _ I get it. But I’m not giving up hope on humanity. No matter how stuck any one person is, there is still potential for awakening within us all (even Mr. Orange). I’ve been hopeless and resentful, lashed out and taken illogical, narrow minded stances. I’ve been at war with myself. But I’m not there anymore. If I could wake up, so can anyone. This is why I continue to teach yoga and the spiritual path. It is my mission to spread as much light as possible to as many people as possible in what time I have remaining here. Maybe if enough of us wake up to our potential, we will make a difference. _ Your spiritual awakening matters.

Time is the world’s most precious non-renewable resource. What you spend your time on is a direct expression of what you value. _ Spend your time with people who celebrate your good times and lift you up when you’re down. Don’t waste time on people who bet on your failure and are jealous of your happiness. _ Spend every moment rooted in love and gratitude and your world will be a better place. Actively look for things to appreciate and love and you will start imprinting that onto your brain, hardwiring your mind to repeat that pattern. Try it right now. Comment below with either one thing you love or one thing you’re grateful for. _ Let’s celebrate all love and lift each other up. Let’s cherish all blessings and make even more to be grateful for. _ #practiceyogachangeyourworld #onebreathatatime Shorts & top @liquidoactive _ Practice with me.

Negativity bias is real. Nine people can post positive comments and one person posts a negative one. The mind focuses on the negative and won’t let it go. That one voice appears louder and more impactful than all the positive supporting ones. But, that’s a choice. _ You can actively retrain the habit pattern of your mind to focus on the goodness. It’s there. Statistically speaking the good outweighs the bad every single day. If you spend hours of each day waging wars, practicing outrage, and orchestrating division then very quickly your whole world be jus that. Sitting in that storm it’s hard to understand that only you have the power to truly change it. You can wait forever for external things to change, but unless you change, you’ll see everything that happens as further negative. _ Whatever you give your attention to imprints your cognitive structure with an expectation for more of the same. Become a conscious creator of what you focus on. Your attention is perhaps your most valuable resource. What you focus on grows with the full power of your life force. The root of every action expands exponentially with each repetition. _ Do you believe it? You have the power to create worlds. What kind of world do you want to create? _ #practiceyogachangeyourworld #onebreathatatime Photo @sfreneenyc Dress is my design by @liquidoactive _ Practice with me.

What you see online is rarely the full story. What makes it onto social media is often just scratching the surface of the reality of life. It may seem like if there isn’t a post about something that nothing is happening, but the truth is not always evident in what is publicly share. _ There are untold stories of love, joy, courage and bravery happening in so many moments of life and most of these aren’t captured on social media. There is a balance of goodness in the world, and that balance is always toward love and hope over fear and anger. It might not appear to be true when you’re caught reading endless comment threads or when your main source of information is what’s on social media. But it’s true anyway. There is more goodness in life than there is anything else. _ What you see is always colored by your viewpoint. We all have bias and our bias skews our experience of life. The question to ask is not an all-or-nothing dilemma about how to end all bias or to permanently sign off social media. It’s about subtlety, compassion and a willingness to work with what is for the greater good. There are so many amazing things about connecting with like-minded people online. Those connections are even more impactful when it leads to real life action offline. Why I continue to share online while I work hard offline is because I know that what I do inspires people to live a more peaceful life. I am confident that what I do adds value to the world and to lives of real people. There are anyhow yet still people who are haters. I’ve given up trying to convince people of my goodness. I am who I am at the end of the day and I can only show up and do the work. What you see in me is a reflection of what’s in you. I know who I am in my heart, and I can see that while I am certainly not perfect, I am a being whose heart is filled with love, compassion and little bits of wisdom that I enjoy sharing with world. There are some people who would have me retreat and give up. But, I am not going anywhere. I’m here to stay for a good while. _ #practiceyogachangeyourworld #onebreathatatime Bikini is my design by @liquidoactive _ Practice with me online tomorrow @omstarsofficial at 1 pm 🙏

Illegal practice selfie. This is what happens when I get a text message during practice and I pick up my phone to look at it. Lol. At least I made myself laugh. But seriously, it’s not advised to take selfies (or text message) during practice. It’s much better to use an interval timer for photos and wait until after practice to send texts 😉 _ Teaching two more classes tomorrow in Washington DC.

It has taken me nearly two years (way too long by many standards) to write this blog. I have needed all this time to come to the staggering conclusion that K. Pattabhi Jois, who was one of my yoga teachers, sexually assaulted women under the guise of adjustments. This realization has shaken me to the core. I am not here to swear off Ashtanga yoga, nor am I here to defend his actions. What I am here to do is say that what he did was wrong.

Emotional processing, at least for me, often happens in silence. Working behind the scenes often happens in apparent silence. There was once a time when I was quick to speak, when I couldn’t wait to share my unedited rants with the world. I’m not there anymore. But don’t assume my silence equates with inaction on important things. Soon, it will be time again for me to speak, and I hope that what I share will be filled with more wisdom and more compassion than before. _ I’ve made enough mistakes making assumptions about other people instead of asking intelligent questions. At the very least I’d like not to make the same mistakes going forward. Then, if I’m lucky, I’ll get to make all new mistakes in the future so I can learn all new lessons. _ I don’t know if I will ever be as confident and sure of anything again as I have been in the past. And that is probably a good thing, because I was arrogant and naive and I thought I could change the world. I’m not saying the world can’t change but maybe I am saying that if the world is going to change it’s on us as a whole, not on any one person’s greatness to save us all. _ #practiceyogachangeyourworld #onebreathatatime Photo @sfreneenyc Outfit @liquidoactive _ Practice with me online @omstarsofficial Next live class Thursday 1 pm EST _ Next workshops Washington DC July 13&14 @woodleyparkyoga Cleveland July 19-21 @jessicasayreyoga Denver August 2-4 @bodhimovement Tampa August 9&1 @bellapranayoga Miami One Week Mysore Retreat August, October 2019 & more in 2020 @miamilifecenter All levels always welcome.
