wildchildandtheco. Let’s talk ease V effort
How much of the past week would you say you

Let’s talk ease V effort . How much of the past week would you say you did things with effort v with ease . For me creating a life with with ease is a continuous journey, I often take time to contemplate my week that’s been and my week months ahead and look to see how I can do things with more ease. For me a sense of ease is important to creating a life I love 💕 But I’m also learning to look at the things I want to do, things I want to achieve and create, that although they might fit into the ease category still requires more effort from me than other things I do. . I have to admit I’m not good at the things that require effort, they really require me to practice discipline and use a lot of my energy . I know for other people these things are reversed they do things that require effort with ease but struggle when it comes to doing things with ease or simply inviting more ease into their lives . It’s funny the stories we place around things for years I was told I was lazy but now I realise I just value a life of ease. . Anyhow the point is we need both effort and ease to keep life balanced & healthy if we lived fully with ease we would never get anything done if we lived fully with effort we would inevitably become unhealthy ...so what are you needing in your week ahead more ease or more effort ? . I’d love to know what do you need to turn the dial up on ease or effort - and what do you need to turn the dial down on.....? . pic from my mudra card deck by @alisondenicola . #mudra #contemplation #reflection #balance #effort #yogatherapy #yogatherapist #yinster #slowyoga #holisticliving #wildchild #mywild #thisisyoga #wildyouproject #yogalife #yogalifestyle #yogaoffthemat

theyogabunny. Mudras 101: Durga Mudra

Durga, another badass Goddess of the Hindu pa

Mudras 101: Durga Mudra Durga, another badass Goddess of the Hindu pantheon, helps you defeat your enemies, ill will that is directed toward you, and energy sucking vampires who haven’t realized that they can create their own light. But, eek, that’s so dark! Well, yes. It is dark because darkness is a reality in a world of duality. We, who are the supposed light keepers (🙄), have to constantly deal with darkness. One does not exist without the other. Unfortunately, human relationships are filled with both. We cannot only exist in light all the time. And let’s be real here, humans seemingly enjoy battling since they’ve been at it since the beginning of their existence. Therefore, one must protect oneself, slay the dragons of negativity, and create good from what remains. So back to Durga. She is invincible. She was created of multiple Gods in female form to battle the demons that they were unable to defeat. In turn, she brought peace to the land. See. There’s the light. (<seriously truncated version of the story) If evil is lurking close by (back to that lurking thing), or if you simply need to draw on strength, courage, calmness, and protection, use Durga Mudra in seated meditation and call on your inner warrior goddess to send back any energies directed toward you that are harmful, unconscious, selfish, and ill intended and watch as those energies are transmuted into light. Durga Mudra: Fold the index finger over the thumb and draw the rest of your fingers in. Use both hands. 🙌🏽 💪🏽 💝 #mudras #durgamudra #durga #notallyogaisasana #godeeper #thisisyoga #travelingyogini #theyogabunny

rosabelbong. Monday will be the first day back to work at a new job after mat leave

Monday will be the first day back to work at a new job after mat leave. To be honest I have been a bit anxious about this transition. Also I know I will miss my baby a lot. In my life, when things have been uncertain or have fallen apart I have always had yoga. Along with reading about Buddhism I have learned to settle my interior when I can't necessarily control the exterior. New/old city, new vocation, new life, who dis? #yoga #thisisyoga #breathe

Lesson: take more pics of your gigs, Michelle. But anyway, I spent today in my hometown leading a workshop for Project Yoga Richmond. I led a public workshop and then a workshop for the PYR ambassadors. At the end of one of the workshops one of the participants told me she could really tell this work comes through me. She was talking about my ancestors speaking through me and I’m glad she could see how I work and hold space. This isn’t my work; it’s my ancestors. They speak through me and allow me to bring the spiritual into the physical realm. Thank goddess I have the privilege and honor of being alive at this time doing this work. Thank goddess for the practice of justice and yoga. #skillinaction #socialjusticeyoga #yogaisjustice #yoga #meditation #projectyogarichmond #ancestors #practice #grateful #thisisyoga #authorsofinstagram

Honestly not even entirely certain this is a yoga pose. I am entirely certain idgaf and that this moment was one of the calmest I’ve had in awhile. And it felt g o o d. This is intuitively where my body (and my mind) wanted to go. Where I found the clearest moment of my practice, and release. ————— Did you know the intention of asanas are actually to work your mind and body out to a point of being able to sit in stillness. To get you into a parasympathetic state so you can go deep inside your mind and let the R E A L yoga begin. So you can FEEL. And release. And cry and get angry and smile. A place where the magic happens. 🖤 #thisisyoga . . . . . #yogaflow #yogisofinstagram #letsstartyoga #selfcaresis

“A ritual is the enactment of a myth. And, by participating in the ritual, you are participating in the myth. And since myth is a projection of the depth wisdom of the psyche, by participating in a ritual, participating in the myth, you are being, as it were, put in accord with that wisdom, which is the wisdom that is inherent within you anyhow. Your consciousness is being re-minded of the wisdom of your own life.” - Joseph Campbell ———————————————————————— Yesterday was an incredible way to end an intensive 11 days of deep inner work. The Tirta Empul Tampak Siring, Holy Spring Water Temple, in Ubud is nothing shy magical. Taking part in either rituals or ceremonies is always transformative. And this day was nothing short of that. So much energy, so much intention, so much emotion. ———————————————————————— I am humbled to be a part of this YTT journey this year. 🙏🏼💙 Thank you @thepracticebaliyoga Octavio @karina.guthrie @ellearthur @keli.d.yoga @wings.of.desire @emmasalvado_ @abi_the_practice and photo credit to 📷 @maya___david

And that’s a wrap New York...HUGE thank you to the ladies who came to my foundations class today. We went 0 to 100 real quick and discussed yoga history/origins, pranayama practice, broke down the standard asanas, and finished with a short and sweet meditation. If ya missed it...guess you’ll have to come to Bequia! ✌🏽

“I think many experiences are bound to be failures, and sometimes I regret them before they even happen.” _______________________________________________________ Sometimes, people like me (are you one of us, too?), spend so much time thinking about the future—the good, the bad, the whatever else it could be—that we forget to stop and pay attention to what we’re doing right now. Are you guilty of it, because I am. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ I found myself contemplating my future endeavors today, and instantly went to the “...but what about this,” and “...I’ll have to give up that.” I caught myself, and actually sort of laughed at how ridiculous I was being. I haven’t even started my next adventure, and here I am attempting to shut it down before it’s even begun. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ Why do we do that? Why do we discredit ourselves right away? Is it because we fear not being successful? Maybe it’s the fear that we won’t be good enough, or that we’re an imposter and why should anyone listen to someone who’s still struggling to work it all out? ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ Maybe the answer is that the unknown is terrifying, but the reward is always worth the leap. I may never be an enlightened creature, but my experiences, compassion, and desire to help others will be enough. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ You are enough. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ We are enough. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ Goodnight sweet friends. I need rest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ #igyoga #thisisyoga #tantra #tantricyoga #yoga

Is it a must to have my legs 90 degree to the floor? Nope. What’s the purpose of doing so? I don’t know (probably feeling the thigh muscles squeeze till they gonna cramp) . . . . Strong postures with “perfect” alignment is just yoga in an aesthetic form. I used to chase for it but then I hurt myself a lot during the process. Too much unhealthy folds and twists, which compress my bones & muscles . . . . . As a teacher today, I have to keep asking myself, am I letting my ego to drive my students ego high? Why am asking them to do this and that? What’s the purpose? Is it really healthy? . . . We can have fun with strong difficult postures but letting our ego to lead the practice can be dangerous.

First time going upside down since my surgery 10 weeks ago! It might seem like a long time, but healing isn’t a linear journey—I’m still not back at the point where I can eat apples without cutting them, but grateful for this re-addition to my life! A reminder that minor surgery is still surgery, and we heal at different speeds, so listen to your body without comparing yourself to anyone else’s progress. Grateful to have my #handstandpractice back!

Walking on our glorious Mt Royal. Hundreds of people. Families strolling. Couples cooing. Athletes training. And me. Noticing what is obvious. Clear. Open. Right in front of me. And what is not so obvious. What may need exploring. Beyond the 1st step. Dig further. Take a chance. And notice what is possible. When something ends. Or shifts. Something else begins. Maybe not the same colour. Maybe not the same place or person. And maybe we can shift too. To show up with more faith in where we are right now. #lifelessons #havefaith #ahhh #selflove #theonlywayoutisthrough #om #namaste #montreal #fallfoliage #yogi #thisisyoga #yolo #juju #freespirit #chooseyou #loveisfree #yogalove #blessed #mojo #bigpicture #freeflow #montrealyoga #mylife #trustyourgut #connectthedots
