Someone once asked me how I could be so kind in a world full of cruelty. . . It seemed like such an obvious answer, but I don’t think this person could see it. . . I always divided the world in to two groups: those who saw and those who didn’t. I wasn’t really sure what they saw, but I saw it, too. I FELT it.. . . It was l o v e 💗 . . . Not just romantic love, or even family love or friend love. It was a love for the infinite. It was T H E love. Love for us all as one united consciousness. Love for ALL through oneself. . . . And that’s why kindness matters. It’s why I’m kind to everyone, even if they aren’t kind to me back. Because harming them is only harming myself. . . . You are loved, and you are love 💖 . . .

when #elephanttrunkpose gets extra funnn. 🐘 ⠀ we’re closing out our final day of #yogaforTNelephants by balancing on our hands with a grin (the grin’s optional, but it helps). 😁 ⠀ 🙌 working to find lift in elephant trunk pose? if the butt’s dead weight, elevate! practice with hands on sturdy yoga blocks—the extra height gives more room to lift. this pose works best after i do some hip & hamstring opening too (think happy baby pose, lunges, lizard pose, etc.) ⠀ thank you everyone for playing & spreading the word on 2 amazing organizations: @chairiteez and @theelephantsanctuary ! it’s amazing to think that, even through a yoga challenge, we can come together & share the good in this world. 💙🐘💙 ⠀ — — — hosts: @barefootyogi_ @cathytran_yoga @geeoice_yoga ⠀ sponsor: @chairiteez (hair tie here. 💁‍♀️ use code yogaforTNelephants for 25% off any order) ⠀ Line Up: 1.  seated meditative pose ✔ 2.  seated balancing pose ✔ 3.  1-legged standing balance ✔ 4.  warrior pose ✔ 5.  headstand ✔ 6.  reclined pose ✔ 7. elephant pose or any arm balance ✔

Do you ever have those days where you try to get something done and it feels like you are just spinning your wheels? Well, I just had a day like that. A lot of work with out a lot actually getting accomplished. Oh well. 🤷‍♀️ At least I practiced today and even surprised myself with a lower from handstand to Ashtavakrasana. It is hard not to get frustrated by some of the things that I still can’t do very well since my shoulder injury, but then, my body surprises me sometimes too, like today! 😃So exciting! This is a very late #growwiththeflow flow. I am late, but still planning to work my way through the challenge! I always love what @casa_colibri @upsidedownmama @coffeeandrainbows and @natashaswinter come up with!!! . . . . Wearing my new natural wool muscle shirt from @ridge_merino 🙌 Their stuff is so soft and wearable and never ever gets stinky like other workout wear! 🤸‍♀️(Check my stories for a closer look!)

Eka Hasta Bhujasana ↔ Elephant Trunk Pose or One Leg Over Arm Pose

🐘 Eka Hasta Bhujasana ↔ Elephant Trunk Pose or One Leg Over Arm Pose on 👉@yogaalignment . . #yogasequence with @jasmine_yoga 👈 ・・・ #JasmineYogaTutorial : #ElephantPose A very popular pose when instagram yoga challenges first started. It was also attending this pose for the first time that I experienced #quadcramps from hell. I can now do this with ease because I have figured out the technique behind this pose. You see I believe there is a way to understanding the poses and working into it the smart way (almost like physics) than relying just on pure brute strength. Tips / Tricks 1) Instead of lifting your bum up, try scooping it back. Like I did in step 4. 2) Round your back as you scoop bum back, this helps to activate core 3) refer to my previous tutorial on training thigh strength. The transition from step 4 to 5 involves the same technique. With your back rounded, lift your heel upward and you are in the full pose! Try and let me know if this worked for u! ;) Goodluck x #yogaalignment . . . . . . . #yogapose #yogaasana #loveyoga #yogagram #instayoga #yogainspo #doyouyoga #yogaeveryday #yogalove #yogamotivation #yogainspiration #inversionaddict #inversionjunkie #yogaaddict #feeltheyogahigh #yogajourney #yogisofinstagram #yogateachertraining #yogapractice #selftaughtyogis #practicepracticepractice #effectiveheadstands

#armyourbalance2 Today’s pose is #elephantpose but where can we keep going from elephant once we start to open those hips further and activate the core to lift ourselves higher off the ground? Well, #ekapadasirsasana is the answer of course! I wanted to record a video of this for you guys today but I’ve had such a nonstop week that there’s just no way it’s happening at this hour. I’m finishing up my 500h ytt and have been in a 9 day intensive course all this past week. The video will have to wait till tomorrow but once you’re at a point where your elephant leg is able to go up over your shoulder, keep working the #hipopeners and see if you can slide your foot behind your head. In the beginning the foot will not stay there and it will literally launch uncontrollably off, but this is all a part of the normal process. In elephant once you start to get some good lift with the leg, the concept here is the same. You’ll need to strengthen the #hipflexors to really bring the leg up and then the key will be to push the pelvis forward to get the knee to nose. Eka pada sirsasana is a #secondseries #ashtanga asana that elephant pose is the perfect prep for. The great thing about the practice is that we can always keep challenging ourselves and keep learning. The tricky part is learning to respect and listen to our body, knowing when to say enough is enough, so as not to force anything or practice unsafely leading to injuries. Elephant pose is preparing us for something ahead more challenging just the same as eka pada sirsasana is. Keep going on your journey. Who knows where we’ll all end up. . 🦎👣🐢 #talcomrajanature .

💙🌼 #junebloomyogis 🌼💙 Day 5️⃣ is #legbehindthehead And DANG in my current practice there is NO possible way to photograph this elegantly let alone do the pose! Instead, I’m bringing to you #elephantpose as a prep for leg behind the head. - Using my @ab_asanas I regularly to elephant holds to strengthen my core for all poses, not just let behind the head. Adding in a constant core routine makes the biggest difference in my practice, and keeps my back safe at the same time.

🐘Elephant Content Alert🐘 I hadn’t done this #asana before, but it’s only fitting to learn #elephantpose in the motherland of the #asianelephant. After learning it, the #krama into #eightanglepose is smooth sailing. So that and the genius who invented the #infinitypool are #themagic 🌗 #thereal #elephants were total mensches to let fam lolligag around for lunch and bath time. shouts to the Elephant Nature Park aka an ethical retirement home for dumbos who used to be employed for logging or human riders but are now free to chillax.

I’ve been having a hard time thinking of captions for my posts and I decided that I’m just gonna say what’s on my mind. Sometimes it might be inspirational, but most days it might just be a thought I had earlier or even nothing at all. There’s always so much pressure to put the “best content” on your social media but I want this page to sort of be an outlet for that, starting now. So I say screw arbitrary standards, don’t care so much what people think, & just do your damn yoga✌🏼✌🏼

Tonight, I wanted to try #eightanglepose for a balance exercise but couldn’t quite get it off the ground. I decided to try transitioning or floating from #elephantpose into it instead. I wasn’t expecting much because I thought it would be more difficult, but then this happened! 💖 I’m so excited for yet another little improvement! Now, I’ve got to work on my weak side. Don’t mind my alarmingly shiny face, I was waiting for my mask to dry. 😅😂 #amateuryogi #armbalance

It’s been a minute since I posted on IG! Hi IG friends! Ive been keeping my left leg lifted up, but not quite like pictured. ;) . ✨ Update: Over the past 4-weeks I’ve been a bit pre-occupied with post surgery stuff, plus “dotting i’s and crossing t’s” to finish out 2018, catching up on stuff that I kept saying, “I don’t have time to do”, and doing a lot of goodies in prep for 2019! I have some new online classes that I hope to share with you later this week. I’m still working on my 2019 schedule, but if you click the link in my bio you can see some of whats happening so far in 2019 (there might be a couple amendments to the current schedule + additional goodies added)! . ✨ As far as how I’m doing personal, with each day, I’m feeling better post surgery (despite dealing with a cold for the past week 🤧, but that’s almost out of my system). I’m up on crutches (& now working on just using one crutch!), but still spend most of my time laying down or seated. I just started PT. Wahoo! I’m not driving yet, but thankful for friends who’ve stopped by to say hi, take me to the store, etc. I recently started taking Lyft rides on my own to PT, etc. Though I’ve been getting better and out a little more, my body and brain are still asking for a lot of rest while trying heal. . ✨ Overall, all is good, and this feels like the right time to heal, catch-up, re-order and re-direct a bit! I hope your 2019 is treating you well so far! Click the link in my bio for free classes & up-coming schedule! I hope to have new classes to you soon! . ✨ Image: Post injury, but not post surgery! Im only working on Tadasana & Savasana right now ;).
