It’s Thanksgiving week. A time to gather. A time to reflect. A time for gratitude. . We are so grateful for this existing, and growing, community of yogis. . Over the weekend, we had a little “omie” gathering. In casual conversation, we talked about when we first felt we started living a life that felt authentic to our true being. . For us, much of that authentic life and path started when we found a common community with all of you. For that, we can’t possibly thank you enough. Thank YOU for being a part of our lives. . Sending so much love and gratitude this week. 🙏🏼 - Joella, Stacy, Bryana, Amanda❤️ . 📸 @comfortandcashmereimages . 📿 @moxiemalas . #borealblissyogaretreats #omies #borealblissomies #gratitude #yoga #thankful #mnyoga #thanksgiving

Aren’t you tired yet with stories? I’m exhausted. This identification with body and thoughts doesn’t end well. Yet beyond all narration, Infinity dances self evident for anyone ready to look outside the box. 📸@rolandomoralesperez

lindsaykocka. Yoga Asana is notorious for asking us to put our body parts in positio

Yoga Asana is notorious for asking us to put our body parts in positions with the leverage of other body parts. I don’t think this is inherently bad, but I do think we can also benefit from working our active and controlled ROM, if we want our bodies to feel better and do better. Try moving into a pose similar to the one pictured here, squeeze and engage, and then let your foot go and see what your hip flexion is really made of. The yoga pose paradigm is shifting. I’m of the opinion that if we want to honor the history of this practice, we have to let it continue to evolve, as it always has.🧡 📷: @northernyogacenter

One more shot from hanging with my little buddy Romeo poolside in Minneapolis. Isn’t he just a little prince? 👑 It was exactly four years ago that we moved to Minneapolis, definitely a special city that will stay in my heart forever! Luckily I still run a yoga business there and have lots of excuses to travel back all the time! . . #urdhvadhanurasana #wheelpose #backbend #yogalove #flowthroughlife #pisces #minneapolislove #yogabusiness #yogainspiration #mnyoga #urbanyogi #minneapolis #minneapolisskyline #bikinigirl #bikinilife #summertime #sirsasana #poolside #poolsideyoga #mermaid #mermaidlife #afternoonswim #summer #summerlife #sunbabe #bikiniyoga #puppylove #minatureyorkie #yorkielove #doga

Getting out of your comfort zone is good right? We did something waaaayyyy out of our norm on Friday night! . Thank you SO MUCH to the amazing women of @wyld_fiyah for a night to remember! We celebrated three omie birthdays, including our very own @joellaerin. We shook what our mommas gave us in so many ways we didn’t think we even could! 😂 . Many of us (but not all!) were way out of our element, but Melissa and Chloe are pros and they had us singing, cheering, and dancing with them in no time. (When your instructors come out twerkin’ in salt shaker costumes it’s hard not to immediately smile and decide to let loose!) They made us feel so comfortable, confident, accepted, and really amazing! . These women are very special souls and we highly recommend checking them out, whether for a @majorbody class or a @wyld_fiyah Strawberries and Stilettos class. They are having a special Christmas theme Strawberries and Stilettos, where they will also do a tutorial, on December 22nd at noon! 👠 👌🏼❤️🔥 . #borealblissomies #borealblissyogaretreats #shakeit #twerk #mnyoga #yoga #havefun #letloose #wyldfiyah #strawberriesandstilettos #twerkitout

In tonight’s yoga class at Portage Brewing Co. we took a more specific look at intention-setting. Sometimes it’s hard to land on a focus in a yoga class. . What should I pick? . Do I have to choose one? . Sometimes I like to practice letting an intention choose me. We do this often at our @borealblissyogaretreats. It’s a beautiful way of connecting with a word and applying to your life, in this moment. . Next week at 5:30-7:00pm on Nov. 25th, we have a very special gratitude yoga class! Guitarist, Steve Reiter and Native American Flutist, Lynn Mineer will be playing for us again! Serenading in meditation and savasana is the absolute BEST. 🙌🏼 . See you next Sunday at @portagebeer! . #intentions #meditation #yoga #walkermn #portagebrewingcompany #northernnamaste #mnyoga #yogaandlivemusic

{A Rant on Striving} // When I started practicing yoga, I had a love-hate relationship with forward folds. . On one hand, I was uncomfortable. I couldn’t “do” it (i.e., get my forehead to my knees or the floor). On the other hand, I experienced a sweet stillness. Right away I saw it as an opportunity to slow down, turn inward, even if I couldn’t “achieve” the full expression of the pose. . One of the most important things that yoga teaches us is to recognize and accept reality, entirely, in the present moment. All of it. . I quickly learned about the power of mind. About ego. Yoga taught me to recognize and accept that I had an inner critic so loud and bossy that I was frustrated on my mat more than I was calm. A teacher would never say to me what I’d tell myself. Fighting with my ego about what was happening in my body NEVER helped. . Pantanjali described this as “asmita” or egoism. Yoga teaches us to set aside those veils and to see the world in its true colors, with pure awareness - which means we are invited to back off from a pose that may be too intense for us. When ego gets loud and pushes you to go deeper, this can be a reminder to not mistake who we are, for how we are in our practice. . Yoga teaches us to accept where our bodies are(or are not) in any given moment. With this acceptance, we develop greater capacity to be still, and settle in. To stay with it. And with time, consistency, non-striving - we gain flexibility. . One of my favorite things to do with this asana is to be fluid within the fold. Inhale to lengthen the spine (coming out of the fold slightly from the hips as you fill the lungs) and exhaling release navel to the floor. This is subtle, inches, but can feel like miles. I find with moving gently in this way, I maintain greater awareness of not only where I am holding on, but also that I can open both my muscles and my mind. . Which pose did you love/hate at first? . . . #selfluminescence #yogateacher #yogastudio #yogaeverydamnday #yogapractice #safespace #selfcare #mnyoga #stcloudmn #sangha #innerwisdom #selfawareness #pantanjali #yogasutras #movementmeditation #movementmedicine #mindfulmovement #forwardfold #upavisthakonasana

From the perspective of Traditional Chinese Medicine, we’re entering the season of the Water Element. Being a fire sign with a Pitta disposition, this element resonates with my need to simplify, strip away, and access vitality through a steady and intentional distribution of energy. Over the next few months, you’ll find emphasis on the kidney and bladder meridians in both my movement and restorative classes. Who knows, I may even offer a Yoga and TCM Winter Water Element Workshop for ya, it sure has been a while.💙📷: @northernyogacenter

coalfury. I’m having way too much fun prepping for the fascia workshop. 
Tight i

I’m having way too much fun prepping for the fascia workshop. Tight is a neurological response. Your nervous system constricts muscles and joints when it perceives a threat. If you just ‘stretch’ or roll a tissue out, you’re not necessarily addressing why your brain tightened up the area in the first place, nor are you improving tissue function or movement patterns in any real way. We approach and release with the nervous system, and then we move and look for integration. Or we can explore integrity of movement and stumble across the nervous system. You see what I mean: they are the same thing. The whole thing is only interesting in being a greater way to understand yourself and care for self. Ps, chances are neither your hips or your hamstrings are ‘tight’. #science #unbound #deconstructingvinyasa #tulayogaandwellness #returnyoga #mnyoga

W H O L E N E S S At Yara Yoga all of our classes are trauma-informed and designed to support whole-being, well-being. We are grounded in the belief that people are born whole and our well-being is innate — always available within. This is our birthright. Stress and the impacts of trauma can create barriers to wholeness and well-being. Through breath, movement, meditation, somatic awareness, tension release, mindfulness & relaxation techniques, we reconnect our body, mind & spirit. Our goal is to empower participants with tools and techniques to respond to and effectively manage the difficulties of life. #youarewhole #wholeness #yoga #thisismyyoga #yogaeverydamnday #yogini #traumasensitiveyoga #traumainformedyoga #somaticyoga #hathayoga #vinyasa #healing #wholebeing #wellbeing #mnyoga #duluthmn #yara #yarayoga

I was boutique shopping a while back and I came across these socks. I LOVE them! I love them because they say things I want to say to everyone I meet...AND, given what they say, I guess that might be a bit socially awkward and weird. I've come to a point in my life where I'm not going to apologize for who I am. I'm embracing who I am and truth be told I do struggle with that. I AM "complicated", I AM the "rainbow sheep", I do wear my heart on my sleeve, I am an open book and if I could be a unicorn, I WOULD(wouldn't you?)! AND at this moment, since I am Carrie, I am going to try to be authentically ME! I will love and get my heart broken. I will love and receive amazing gifts from those who CAN love me in return. I chose to put love into the world again and again. If you choose love, comment with the word "love". #forgiveness #affirmations #bethelight #daringgreatly #meditation #moment #gratitude #yoga #yogainspiration #mylife #coolsocks #beyou #embraceyou #twincitiesyoga #mnyoga #rainbowkidsyoga #yogaismorefuntogether

My practice has changed a lot over the years. Initially I wanted to move fast, do big postures, and work really hard in my physical practice. Now things are very different. I like to move slower. I appreciate the subtlety of a detailed practice. Plus I appreciate the quiet moments more than the rapid flows. I’m very excited to share a chilled out practice at @voyager_yoga with all of you. Come join me for Sunday Night Slow Down THIS Sunday, November 18th 6:30-8pm. Bring a mug if you want to sip on some tea. Bring a friend to share the experience. Wear your coziest yoga clothes and prepare to unwind. The class is donation based. You truly pay whatever you want via cash or Venmo. See you there.
