Which direction are you looking 👀? It’s #mentalhealthawareness . Let’s Look forward not back. You cannot worry about what other people are doing or not doing on the gram. Follow people that inspire you only! Hide or block those that bring you down. It’s so important to manage and monitor what your mind is taking in and what you take mental notes of. These messages are what you become. It takes deep meditation and concentration to stand on your head for ten minutes. If that’s not yet in your practice, that’s ok! There are plenty of other ways to go upside down and other postures to practice that give these same benefits of clearing your mind and allowing the oxygenated blood to go to your head, rejuvenating your brain cells. Who knows maybe one day you will find your way in a headstand and it will become easy for you. • • • “Don’t listen to the mind. The mind doesn’t want to do anything and will erect barriers that keep you from doing what you need to do. Listen only to the spirit.” • • “Pain and suffering exist only to purify the mind, so over time you learn something and can ultimately discover what you really are.” • • “Come mind cooperate!” ~Sri Dharma Mittra • • If your interested in learning any of these ways that lead to mental clarity, take one of my classes @modrnsanctuary 7pm Monday’s or @moxytimesquare 7:45am Thursday’s for the early birds. My other classes are private events or in corporate private settings. However, you can book a private session with me or a Thai yoga bodywork session. The other wellness/selfcare option I have to offer currently is a $50 discount for a Hydra facial with @rothaus_md with a free LED light panel. • • • What did you do today for your mental wellness?
Have you been working hard? Yeah, me too! Let’s decide together instead we are going to work SMART. Let’s do a cleanse. Detox all of that stuff you don’t need. Yes, this can be done by drinking celery juice and warm lemon water in the mornings. YEAH, do that but, I’m not talking physically, I’m talking ENERGETICALLY. I’m talking about the vampires in your life. Can you identify them? They are easy to spot in hindsight. After all, hindsight is 20/20. All of us may not have perfect vision but we have a gut. That gut feeling you get when you meet someone and instinctively know what’s up. Then your head (the mind) and your heart start talking and do a takeover. • • The holy book says “The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?” ~Jeremiah 17:9 • • “For him who has conquered the mind, the mind is the best of friends; but for one who has failed to do so, his mind will remain the greatest enemy.” ~Bhagavad Gita • • So what shall we do? I’ll tell you in my next post. In the meantime, join me Monday’s 7pm in the saltroom @modrnSanctuary Thursday’s @Moxytimessquare or hit me up for a private lesson or a Thai yoga sesh. The rest of my classes are not public but private for corporations. If yoga on a rooftop or in a saltroom doesn’t resonate with you, practice some selfcare and get a hydrafacial @modrnsanctuary use my code: QUEENGOTHAM for $50.00 off and a free LED light panel treatment.
♾▪️Are you aware of the power you have within yourself? Do you look up to worship what it is you believe in or do you find that power with in yourself? If we are created from a Power, than we are in fact that Power. Meaning that power is within you, within me...within us.▪️♾ I read this below and thought of you today... • • “There is a power inside of you which if you could discover and use would make you everything you ever dreamed or imagined you could become. The same power that created us sustains and repairs us, and this Power is right inside of us.” ~The Miracle of Right Thought by: Orison Swett Marden • • • 👁🗨How can you open up and unleash your power from within today? 👁🗨 • • “We are all conscious of something within us that is deathless, something immortal, divine. We all feel this, the silent messenger which accompanies us through life, trying to warn us, advise us, protect us, no matter where we go, or how low we fall.” ~The Great Within • This flesh will one day go...Even when I die, I’ll be fighting battles in the sky. ~Queengotham • • • • • #power #queengotham #yoga #strength #yogaeverydamnday #yogi #speed #yogalove #yogainspiration #namaste #yogaeverywhere #powerlifting #yogagirl #strong #yogachallenge #yogalife #igyoga #yogini #yogapractice #meditation #energy #yogapose #yogaeveryday #instayoga #practiceandalliscoming #handstand #balance #yogajourney #asana
What is the paralysis of fear? I can tell you I’d much rather paralyze fear then BE paralyzed BY fear. It’s human and natural to feel fear when life throws things at you, but what do you do with it? • • Today, I read something cool and confidence building... • • “Fear and worry make us attract the very things we dread. • • The fear habit impairs health, shortens life and paralyzes efficiency. Doubt and fear mean failure; FAITH is an optimist, FEAR is a pessimist. FEAR in all its different phases of expression, such as worry, anxiety, anger, jealousy, timidity, is the greatest enemy of the human race. It has robbed man/woman of more happiness and efficiency, has made more people cowards, more people failures or forced them into mediocrity, than anything else.” ~The Miracle of Right Thought by: Orison Swett Marden Remember that flipping perspectives thing? Today, Look fear in the eye no matter what it is you are dealing with and say very loudly “NO”. ~Queengotham • • • • • #yoga #queengotham #yogaeverydamnday #yogi #yogalove #yogainspiration #namaste #yogaeverywhere #yogagirl #yogachallenge #yogalife #igyoga #yogini #yogapractice #meditation #yogapose #yogaeveryday #instayoga #practiceandalliscoming #handstand #balance #yogajourney #asana #flexibility #yogagram #yogadaily #yogaaddict #yogisofinstagram #stretch #yogateacher
Have you flipped your perspective yet? Turned something upside down? Zoomed In for a closer look as suggested in my recent posts? How about COUNTERACT and COUNTER-THOUGHT? Do you know what it means? Let’s talk about it. “Every thought or emotion vibrates through every cell in the body and leaves an influence like itself. The coming man/woman will find it as easy to counteract an unfriendly, disagreeable thought by turning on the counter-thought which will antidote or neutralize it, as it is to rob the hot water of its burning power by turning on the cold water faucet. The hatred thought can not live an instant in the presence of the love thought.” “He who hates is an assassin” - and he is also a suicide. “Right thinking pays large dividends.” ~The Miracle of Right Thought by: Orison Swett Marden Every time I practice inversions (headstands, forearm balances and handstands) I’m able to meditate and think through things that bother me. I think about things I don’t like and situations I’m uncomfortable with and realize really powerful thoughts about how I have the power of change within myself through counter-thought. How can you counteract a situation and use counter-thought in your life today? • • • • • #yoga #queengotham #yogaeverydamnday #yogi #yogalove #yogainspiration #namaste #yogaeverywhere #yogagirl #yogachallenge #yogalife #igyoga #yogini #yogapractice #meditation #yogapose #yogaeveryday #instayoga #practiceandalliscoming #handstand #balance #yogajourney #asana #flexibility #yogagram #yogadaily #yogaaddict #yogisofinstagram #stretch #yogateacher
Do you need to ZOOM in? It’s ok, I did it for you. Well, my photographer did. Sometimes in life we need to zoom in and take a closer look. Zooming in helps you to see things more clearly, the fine print, the design, the perfect stitching. The stretchy fabric. All of the pretty colors. I warn you though, seeing all of the fine details in life sometimes may not be the best thing for you. Can you handle it? • • • Sometimes seeing people more closely causes THEM to be insecure and they can become bullies. See, bullies have something to hide. They want to divert the attention. I am #antibully • • • I’m a heart. I’m a tiger. I’m a butterfly. YES I can. I will... Tell. them. to. RUN. Tell them I gave them a head start. Then, WALK firmly away. • • • Just because you are a tiger doesn’t mean you always bite. A tiger only bites what it needs. ~Queengotham • • • Bullies come in all shapes and sizes.

Does your world sometimes get turned upside down? 🙃Take a moment to take a look at a new perspective. Sometimes, when we look at things in a different way it changes our perspective. Perhaps new information appears or we notice something different that has always existed or perhaps you didn’t know was there. In yoga, I LOVE being upside down. All of the blood rushes to your head rejuvenating and revitalizing, waking your brain cells and bringing new life to the skin on your face and the appearance of your skin! Things look different upside down when I’m in a headstand, handstand or forearm balance. You can’t always stand upright and you can’t always view people, places and things the same way. What perspective can you shift today? • • • PC: @granthenrymedia wearing @sweatybetty use code: QUEENGOTHAM for 20% off • • • • • #Queengotham #iamasweatybetty #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #yogi #yogalove #yogainspiration #namaste #yogaeverywhere #yogagirl #yogachallenge #yogalife #igyoga #yogini #yogapractice #meditation #yogapose #yogaeveryday #instayoga #handstand #balance #yogajourney #asana #flexibility #yogagram #yogadaily #headstand #yogisofinstagram #stretch #yogateacher
🍁🍂What’s your favorite place in NYC? I was asked this recently when I took part in @granthenrymedia ’s new project for a table book called My Yoga, My City. As a child I grew up going to @lincolncenter for various dance performances, auditions and rigorous study. I spent so much time in these theaters and by the fountain DREAMING BIG, watching the “greats” and taking photos outside by the fountain. I thought to myself “One day I’m going to make it!” I never thought I’d find myself taking yoga photos in front of my very favorite theatre @metopera and comfortable in my own skin as a grown women. The woman you see here is very different than the woman I’d imagined I’d become. However, it’s the right me, one with myself. All I’ve gone through, the ups and downs the light and dark, sometimes very dark times have all brought me here to this place pictured above. Perfectly living in my own skin. Had I had the yoga practice I now have, I’d say to myself “I’ve made it. This is great. Look at all I get to do. I’ve been chosen by the right schools and companies (and ALL of that training) to be where I am today.” Yet, that was meant to be now. I call this post “Now and Then”. How is your now different from your then?🍂🍁 • • • PC: @granthenrymedia Wearing: @sweatybetty Use code: QUEENGOTHAM for 20% off.

It’s 79 degrees in NYC with a high of 89 in the first day of Fall! Are you enjoying this warm weather? I have to say it’s my guilty pleasure. I’m preparing for the cool weather but do prefer the warmth of the sun. It’s best for my skin and my dosha. What do you prefer? Sometimes, feeling sluggish with weather fluctuations can lead to fatigue without even realizing it. This can interrupt your much needed leisure time and the start of your work week. Do you want more energy to enjoy time with family and friends after your work week? • • • A traditional Thai massage is a deep, full-body treatment that begins at the feet and ends at the head. Using a sequence of gentle, flowing exercise movements, the recipient’s body is moved, loosened and stretched in order to increase muscle flexibility and joint range of motion. This unique type of massage also influences the energetic side, restoring the flow of energy throughout the body with applied acupressure on the Zen energy lines of the body, aimed at harmonizing and energizing. The Thai technique differs from a regular massage in that the client is fully dressed and no oils are applied. ~BlueOsa • • • Benefits Include: •Helps detoxify the body and boosts the immune system •Increases blood circulation and lowers blood pressure •Great for muscle relaxation, increases flexibility in muscles and increases mobility •Improves posture, balance, corrects body alignments and dissolves energy blocks •Helps tone the body, strengthens joints and fights diseases including chronic joint problems •Reduces and relieves stress and anxiety •Helps boost energy levels • 🧘🏻♀️DM for more information or join me tonight in the salt room @modrnsanctuary at 7pm where I talk about a brief introduction to Thai yoga Body Work and offer some adjustments to students who request it.💆🏻♀️ • • • • • #thaiyogamassage #thaiyoga #yoga #saltroom #massage #massagetherapy #spa #facial #massagetherapist #massages #массаж #reflexology #physio #facials #physicaltherapy #rehab #relaxation #therapy #queengotham pc @granthenrymedia Thai yoga client: @dominykag
