Strange that for 17 years of my personal asana practice I have been avoiding backbends while simultaneously talking about the presents that an open heart keeps bringing me. Every backband was quite uncomfortable. Not painful, not difficult, just very unpleasant with more specific feelings I don't have words for. So now I got interested in this indescribable feeling, I got curious, that is why I started to practice more - to observe and stop avoiding. Just this witnessing is starting to change the feelings. Now, this is something else!!

If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich? . Would you write poetry? Rescue animals? Sing in a choir? Plant flowers? Read books? Ride horses all day? Create art? Teach your passion to the world? Simply connect with others? Pretend happiness IS the only currency.

Yoga photo tip of the day: You don’t need a fancy wall or backdrop, just walk down the street to get some dope shots. 📷: @deandreyoga Sidenote: how many of you would freak out if you saw a random person in like wheel pose scurrying from one side of the street to other? I feel like yogis wouldn’t even be phased.. they’d be like damn, that’s a solid backbend with lots of strength & mobility. Everyone else would be like damn, that’s some exorcist shit.

What is one thing you have not yet done that you REALLY want to do? What’s holding you back? . Think about it. Maybe write about it. Brainstorm about it or talk to friends about it. Do what you need to do, in order to go out and do it. . Snowga was always one of those things for me. It doesn’t actually snow a lot in Kansas though. When I was a kid, I can remember a handful of bad snowstorms— but we usually only get 1-3 a year. I’m not going to pretend this wasn’t the coldest moment of my life. But nothing was cold other than my feet! You’re looking at a girl who had never stood barefoot in snow before! 🙈❄️ After @charlie2chutes and I took about 20 photos? I told him my feet hurt too bad, and we had to come back tomorrow. That night I went out and bought the fuzzy white rug you saw me using in the last #snowga photo! I loved the aesthetic and the warmth it was going to provide. Happy Thursday. 🖤 . velvet threads by @aloyoga . #yogaoutside #aloyoga #realworldpocahontas

I never grew up thinking, wow, I wanna live in CA. Truth be told, growing up in NJ made CA feel like a whole other country. I had never vacationed here or had family who lived here. If you had asked me 5 years ago where I would be living today, LA wouldn’t even be on a list of possibilities. As many of you know, I applied to 10 DPT schools in all different states, and I only got into 2. Both of them happened to be in LA 🤔. My first time out here was to interview for my school, and I honestly hated it at first. Flash forward almost 3 years and wow, has my perspective changed! I think every city has a unique character, and I’ve grown to love the culture of LA. Just the other night I was out with my friends and we were all talking about our 9-5’s. After about 5 minutes, we switched gears and started to talk about our goals for projects, creative visions, and inventions. We talked about our plans to create and explore our unique individuality, our plans to pursue our true passions and what makes us happy. Before living out here, I would have told you I’m going to be a Physical Therapist. But now, I’m so much more. I’m a creator, a sharer, a mover, an artist. Thank you LA for cracking me open and showing me that what’s inside can be used for the benefit of everyone. Just takes a little creativity and willingness to go against the grain 😉 . . . .

If I could tell the girl in the left pic just one thing, it would be to trust, to surrender, and to take life one day at a time, for when this picture was taken, 10 years ago, she had no idea that the world she knew was about to go belly-up. . A few weeks later, her estranged father would end his own life jumping into a dam, and an infinite hole would open up in her soul, sucking her deep into the darkest of nightmares. There would be a generalized anxiety disorder, there would be depression. There would be agoraphobia, and then eventually she would take a leave of absence from her job, unable to face other human beings any longer, unable to smile as she sold a shallow illusion to the unknowing. . By the end of the same year, yoga would finally knock on the door, take her hand, and bring her face to face with her Self — promising to never leave again. . . If I could tell her just one thing, today, it would be that God is great, and to surrender into His embrace, into the sound of His lullaby, and the warmth of His arms. . I have never felt more held, more taken care of in my life, than in the darkest of the loneliest nights. . . And then the sun and the moon came out, as they always do, and I wouldn’t exchange their smiles for anything in the world. . . . . #10yearschallenge #tbt #throwbackthursday #ificouldtellher #letgoandletgod #beforeandafter #thenandnow #andthen #mysunshine #growthmindset #surrender #faith #devotion #spiritualawakening #yogamom #igyogamom #yogaoffthemat #yogabeyondasana #loveyourlife #lovemyself #igyogacommunity #yogafam #yogaeveryday #myyogajourney

„A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination.“ But sometimes it’s okay to come heart over head, especially in yoga 🙃🙂 And sometimes it’s okay to put the head over heart. But you’ll always have that inner feeling which one should guide you, or even both together 🙏🏼💕 PC: @paddy.photo Wearing @flexilexi_fitness #yogaworld #yogafun #yogafriends #yogainspo #igyogis #yogaposes #heartoverhead #openyourheart #shoulderstand #yogaliebe #yogafrankfurt #yogaleggings #flexilexigirls #werbung

#seaside 🌊 Siedzę sobie w pociągu, przede mną babcia z wnuczkami. Wracają do Krakowa z ferii w Gdyni. Dziewczynki dzwonią do rodziców, mówią, że siedzą już w pociągu i z przejęciem dodają, że wiozą sobie na pamiątkę torebkę muszelek, które nazbierały. . Ja mieszkam nad morzem. Na plaży jestem prawie codziennie, a o pochyleniu się nad muszelkami ostatnio myślałam... Jak jeszcze tu nie mieszkałam. . To chyba taka typowa przypadłość, że to co mamy na co dzień, nam powszednieje. Dobrze jest rozbudzać w sobie tę ciekawość na nowo i na nowo. . Zastanów się dziś - co Ciebie otacza wyjątkowego? Co kiedyś zachwycało, a teraz stało się po prostu zwyczajnością, której nie zauważasz? 🙂 dotyczy to również osób w naszym otoczeniu - często wraz z biegiem czasu ich wyjątkowość również nam umyka. A przecież dobrze wiemy, że byli i nadal są tak samo wyjątkowi. Jak nie bardziej 😉 . Tyle na dzisiaj 🙂 miłego dnia! 💜 . Ach i chętnie przygarnę od Was miejscówkę na dobry, późny obiad w okolicach Dworca Centralnego w Warszawie 🤔 . . . #sea #morze #bałtyk #happytobehere #fromwhereistand #sunset #skyporn #coloursofmylife #nature #walk #walking #healthylife #healthychoices #snow #yogaoffthemat #travelingyogi #calm #travelstagram #lovethatplce #winter2019 #zima #winterootd #śnieg

I’m really enjoying this read right now. I love some of the ritual ideas especially the sleep ritual which would be so great to do. There is always the mention of decluttering in this type of book and bringing more nature into our homes.

Find out who you are and do it on purpose - Dolly Parton ♡ Part two of this little flow. Here’s another snippet of what I get up to after I’ve warmed up my body, and how I work on deepening two of my favourite asanas: #hanumanasana and #urdhvadhanurasana. I love playing around on my mat, following the flow of my body and my breath, tuning inwards and move my body until every inch of it feels good. Until I’ve stretched out every little muscle, and until I can move freely for the rest of the day, without any hindrance, stiffness or discomfort. And that looks different every day. Some days I wear this and I strut my stuff while feeling like a goddess. Other days I wear yoga pants and an oversized t shirt feeling all kinds of badass. And some days I take it slow, easy and unimpressive wearing something else. And then there are those days when I end up dancing, swinging my hair around and shaking my bum, all while channeling my inner She Wolf💁🏼‍♀️ I mean, her hips may not lie, but on a good day, I can move my hips like Shakira💃🏼 ♡ Turn the sound on and hear @mackenziemusic rocking this cover of @brunomars ‘ Finesse🙌🏼 ♡ ____________________________________________ #igyogimovement

💛 HEART. WIDE. OPEN. 💛 Today I did something I didn’t think would ever be possible, I lead my first #kirtan 🎉 Granted it was a group of beautiful souls I’ve grown to know and love over the last few weeks but that doesn’t make it any less valuable. Three weeks ago I wasn’t quite sure I had the nerve but today I know I do. If the heart is sincere, anything is possible. 💛 Thank you @madhukirtan @raghunathyogi and @janeshwardas for showing me my own power. I am eternally indebted to you for this dream come true. 🙏 #bhakti #yogateacher #sincereheart #harekrishna #yogaoffthemat #yogalife

🧘🏼‍♀️🧘🏼‍♀️🧘🏼‍♀️🧘🏼‍♀️🧘🏼‍♀️ You might have realised that the physical movements that we practise in class is just a small part of what yoga actually is. As a whole yoga is more of a lifestyle than a fitness activity. In fact traditionally there are 8 limbs of yoga and only one of them involves movement. The rest include guidelines (not rules!) on how to live your best life, prana - breathing and life force, withdrawing the senses, concentration, meditation and living in union with your higher self // I have wanted to delve into the 8 limbs of yoga in more depth for a while now so in 2019 I will be sharing more about them with you in class and here on social media. Because the best way to learn something is to teach it. Thank you for showing up week after week so this exchange can happen. I hope we all get a lot out of it // Ancient yoga scriptures and philosophy can get a bit intense so I want to explore the 8 limbs of yoga with you in a really modern context so that it is more relatable and practical // This is the perfect time for me to remind you that 'Yoga' is not a religion - it is a lifestyle that enhances your own beliefs and doesn't exist to manipulate or force you into thinking or doing anything // Term 1 starts on the 4th of February so if you are interested in a super gentle ‘yoga’ and relaxation class in Mitcham click the link in our bio to find out more xo Amy

Can you name one thing you love about January? 👇🏻(I found this soooooo hard). I love January because I feel inspired and motivated to reach my goals 💪🏻 (I also like having the dark and cold as an excuse to curl up and hibernate from life).
