✨G R A T I T U D E ✨ . 🙏🏼Did you know that gratitude LITERALLY transforms our brains?! . 🙏🏼Feeling happiness has a direct affect on our central nervous system. . 🙏🏼According to UCLA’s Mindfulness Awareness Research Center, expressing gratitude on a regular basis PHYSICALLY CHANGES the molecular structure of the brain!!!! 🤯🧠. . 🙏🏼Gratitude is the most effective practice for stimulating feelings of happiness! It keeps the gray matter in our brains functioning, in turn making us happier + healthier. . 🙏🏼When we regularly express gratitude we become more peaceful, less reactive + less resistant. . ✨HERE ARE 3 WAYS I IMPLEMENT GRATITUDE INTO MY DAILY LIFE: ————————————- 1. 📓 Keep a daily journal + write 5 things I am grateful for each day. (a functioning body, access to clean water, etc etc) 2. 💜 Practice telling family, friends + strangers on the street something I like or appreciate about them. 3. 🌈 Every time I think a negative thought about myself I force myself to think of 3 things I DO like about myself. . ————————————- HOW DO YOU PRACTICE GRATITUDE?
What you don’t see here is the person who helped hike my legs up to my shoulders. You are also seeing the one second right before I landed on that booty of mine like gosh darn rolly polly olly. . Now don’t get me wrong, I can do this pose on my own. But it’s doesn’t usually look this clean... especially in motion. In real life I look more like a clunky chicken with no head versus a floating swan. . Don’t believe everything you see, we are all out there literally sharing the snapshots of the moments of our lives that look good. I don’t inherently believe that there is anything wrong with doing that, but I do think it’s important to remember. . Either way I feel bad ass in this moment and I appreciate other people’s bad ass moments. Little moments make life sweet and it’s great we get the opportunity to document and look back at our scrap book of happiness. . Anywhooo, here is your cliche moment of reminder that there is always more to a story than the cover of the book. . Much love friends! . #yoga #yqr #yqryoga #yogainspiration #titibhasana #asana #armbalance #yogateacher #purelivingyoga #thisisyoga #meditation #movementmeditation #mobility #saskyoga #yogacanada
Another month, another Development Workshop! What is this baby about you ask? Well let me tell you. . This workshop basically started PLY. It has been our longest running workshop to date because of how valuable the information is. . Have you ever gone to a yoga class and said “what the heck is this teacher talking about?”... ya so have we. Because of this, we decided we needed something to answer that question. And so the Development Workshop was birthed. . This is a four week series that we run monthly. It answers the ins and outs of the most common postures, different modifications, how to use props for your body, common breathing techniques, the basics of meditation, and more. . Sound like something you might need to fill in a few blanks? Join us tonight and for the next four Monday’s @ 7:15pm. Cost is just $111 and comes with an 8 class pass to put the info to use in regular classes! . Link in bio. Reach out with your questions! See you on the mat!
To my seeds of intention, I promise to continue nourishing you for you are my nourishment. I devote myself to your growth and I trust in the time you need to thrive. I am deeply thankful for your uniqueness, inspired by your persistence, and humbled by your strength. I love you. . What intentions are you planting in your life right now? Do you have the patience it takes to care for them? Do you trust the cycles and seasons of growth? Do you believe in them and love yourself enough to keep going? . If these questions scare you... I am right there with you. But I also know that fear is useless. Everyday I remind myself that I cannot be fixed on my fear. So I plant more seeds. I focus on the growth even when nothing seems to be growing. Mindset is powerful and it’s such a humbling process just like gardening. So who is out there gardening the fuck out of their lives? Let’s share our tips and tricks and make the coolest community garden ever! Are you with me?

@britkish in her natural element (aka getting a little weird on the yoga mat) . Join Brit this Sunday from 7:00-8:30pm for the New Moon Manifestation. . She will be leading us through some gentle breath based movements to open and relax the body. We will then explore a meditation for reflection over our last decade and of imagination for the upcoming decade. After this we will take the time to ourselves for a journaling exercise that is designed to inspire you in the future. . See you there #yoganinjas!
💫H U M A N C O N N E C T I O N💫 . . 👥The first time a teacher adjusted me to relax my shoulders in yoga, I started BAWLING. In that moment, I realized HOW LONG it had been since someone had reached out + physically touched me. It felt so fucking good. . 👥Of course, the researcher in me hadddd to find the science behind it. 🤓 Here it goes 👇🏽👇🏽. . 👥Sustained eye contact + human touch encourages feelings of love, trust + bonding by releasing oxytocin in our brain. Oxytocin plays a huge role in social bonding + sexual reproduction. It extends to generate feelings of compassion during human interactions. . 👥Human touch also notoriously reduces social anxiety + stress by increasing levels of dopamine + serotonin — two neurotransmitters which help to regulate our mood. . 👥Even more, it is known to improve the function of our immune system, as well as reduce diseases associated with the heart + blood. . 👥If you don’t currently have another human you like to snuggle with, COME TO YOGA! I teach a Yin Massage + Guided Meditation at 7:45PM on Thursday nights @pure_living_yoga . . 👥Not quite feeling the yoga? A pet is a wonderful companion + massages can help too! Either way, I’m here to remind you to give yourself or someone you love some human touch this week.🥰🥰🥰
